Since the financial crisis, stress testing of large financial institutions has become a key component of assessing the capital adequacy and resiliency of the financial system. For example, stress tests of large banking organizations are now conducted annually under the Dodd-Frank Act and as part of the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review. Similar stress testing efforts have also been adopted internationally in recent years. Accordingly, stress testing as a discipline has become an increasingly important area for economic research and policy.
To support stress testing related research, and to provide an opportunity for researchers to present and consider the latest thinking in the field, the Federal Reserve System will hold its fifth annual Stress Testing Research Conference on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.
