Stress testing masterclass

or how to stick around for the long-term…


First introduced in 2015, stress testing has matured into a critical tool for building financial resilience and creating confidence in Boards, partners and the Regulator that your ambitions are deliverable.

As political, policy and market uncertainty increases, join Campbell Tickell Partner, Sue Harvey and guest speakers, for a half-day workshop to ensure that you maximise the business value from the 2020-21 planning round and go beyond regulatory compliance.

What will we cover?

We will draw on our expertise and learning from reviewing over 90 stress tests, highlighting best practice, traps to avoid and covering:

  • Bringing the ‘what-if’ analysis alive and keeping it relevant;
  • Fully engaging Boards with early involvement and clarity of reporting;
  • Linking to performance reporting, golden rules, risk registers and asset & liability registers;
  • Moving beyond the wizardry of financial modelling to build collaborative mitigation plans and practical triggers;
  • Making best use of Brixx;
  • Good (and not-so-good) use of the Bank of England stress test; and
  • Keeping ahead of rising regulatory expectations.
