Why Should You Attend?

“Reputational risk is a real challenge; the first time around the track, midsized banks want to
get the turns right.”

Frank Keating, President, American Bankers Association

In 2015, dozens of midsized banks in the US have been asked to follow suit of the major CCAR institutions and for the first time announce the results of the DFAST exercise, showing that they have enough capital and liquidity to withstand a deep recession and prolonged turmoil in financial markets.

CFP’s Stress Testing USA 2015: DFAST Edition Congress has been researched with DFAST institutions, ranging between $10 – 50 Bn in assets, and delivers thought-leadership, best practices and industry insight from more than 20 Senior Risk and Stress Testing practitioners.

Across two-days, participants will hear thought-provoking and insightful presentations and discussions addressing the key challenges being faced institutions subject to DFAST compliance.

Key challenges addressed for 2015 include:

  • Setting the bar for resource and investment levels
  • Controls, challenge and governance
  • Documentation
  • Model validation and development
  • Data flow and reconciliation
    and much more..
