Stress testing

In stress testing, the models and/or scorecards can be compared to each other. Input parameters vary and the supplied results are compared and evaluated. These so-called scenario analyses are used particularly in the financial industry to answer the following questions:

  • What happens if the market falls this year by x%?
  • What happens of the interests rise by y%?
  • What happens if oil prices rise by 200%?
