Since the start of the downturn, stress testing moved from being a secondary element of Pillar 2 frameworks to a central means of determining capital needs for financial institutions.
The industry response to this requirement has been a frantic development of capabilities, focussed primarily on the methodological techniques that underpin robust financial projections.
However, limited progress has been made in industrializing stress testing processes and infrastructure.
ScenarioFrontier is a powerful tool for day-to-day strategic planning and capital management, permitting companies to identify and quantify risks and opportunities across a wide range of potential economic environments. ScenarioFrontier integrates budget, risk, and macroeconomic variables for regulatory compliance and management action planning.
Budget plans are made based on perceived assumptions of economic growth. ScenarioFrontier helps intensify or dampen growth targets, by identifyng risks associated with overheated markets that need to be avoided and opportunities that exist in under-valued markets.
ScenarioFrontier is designed to meet regulatory requirements as outlined in Basel Committee's Principles for Sound Stress Testing Practices and Supervision. The platform ingests raw data and assigns risk-adjusted capital based on macroeconomic scenarios, using Point-in-Time approach.
ScenarioFrontier clients receive quarterly scenario forecasts developed by BBA's experts. The platform also provides access to a scenario library to eligible clients to customize scenarios and simulate their impact on capital.
Other uses of ScenarioFrontier include: help management make decisions based on the organization’s capacity, risk appetite, and actual risk level; plan for dividend distribution, develop capital headroom and monitor premiums for depositor insurance.
