A Proven Approach to Stress Testing Consumer Loan Portfolios

Download White Paper

With emerging stress testing rules from the Federal Reserve, OCC and other regulatory bodies around the globe, lenders are subject to new guidelines which require more sophisticated analytical tools, efficient data infrastructure and experience analytical resources. Smaller lenders (less than $10 Billion in total assets) will soon be subject to similar regulations as the larger banks above $10 Billion that are already subject to the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) guidelines.
