Say Yes to the Stress? Buy-Side Perspectives on Stress Testing

November 1, 2023

This chapter meeting has passed.


Technological advancements have made running stress tests easier than ever for buy-side risk managers. But building stress testing frameworks that deliver actionable insights to decision makers remains a challenging undertaking. In the face of expanding options for how to both conduct and present analyses, how should a risk manager proceed?

The GARP Chicago Chapter has assembled a panel of experienced buy-side practitioners to share their perspectives on the use of stress testing in institutional investing. Topics discussed will include:

  • Scenario analysis vs. sensitivity testing
  • Best practices in scenario design
  • Designing a framework that works for your organization
Attendees qualify for 1 GARP CPD credit.
