The concept and practice of stress testing has been around for many years. While traditional stress testing methodologies are still valid for firmwide scenario analysis and stress testing, special techniques and attentions are needed to successfully achieve the goal of firmwide capital adequacy in forwardlooking stress scenarios. During the 2007 financial crisis, many financial institutions were not sufficiently prepared for the ensuing liquidity crunch and capital drains. Perhaps if banks had worked through different economic scenarios prior to the crisis, they would have been in a better position to weather the storm. Inadequate preparation for crisis can lead to systemic risk and severe economic and political turmoil.
