EBA / ECB banking stress test 2020: business as usual or will everything remain different?

In December 2018, the EBA announced that it would carry out the next European banking stress test in 2020. Thereby it remains true to its current rhythm of carrying out either a comprehensive stress test or a so-called transparency exercise every two years.

The 2018 stress test brought significant changes in the methodology for credit risk in order to adequately comply with the new accounting requirements under IFRS 9. But significant methodological changes can also be expected for 2020. This is because regulatory changes had to be taken into account in past stress tests if they had already been adopted and had entered into force during the time horizon of the stress test (cf. Text 22 of the EBA Methodology 2018).

EBA / EZB Bankenstresstest 2020: business as usual oder bleibt alles anders?

Im Dezember 2018 hat die EBA angek√ľndigt, den n√§chsten europaweiten Bankenstresstest in 2020 durchzuf√ľhren. Damit bleibt sie ihrem bisherigen Rhythmus treu, alle zwei Jahre abwechselnd einen umfassenden Stresstest oder eine sog. Transparency Exercise durchzuf√ľhren.

Der 2018er Stresstest brachte deutliche √Ąnderungen in der Methodik f√ľr das Kreditrisiko, um die neuen Bilanzierungsvorgaben gem√§√ü IFRS 9 angemessen zu ber√ľcksichtigen. Aber auch f√ľr 2020 sind deutliche methodische √Ąnderungen zu erwarten. Denn bereits in den zur√ľckliegenden Stresstests waren regulatorische Neuerungen zu ber√ľcksichtigen, wenn sie bereits verabschiedet wurden und w√§hrend des Zeithorizont des Stresstest in Kraft getreten sind (vgl. Text 22 der EBA Methodik 2018).

EBA veröffentlicht Ergebnisse des 2018er Bankenstresstests

Am 2. November hat die European Banking Authority (EBA) die Ergebnisse des 2018er Bankenstresstests ver√∂ffentlicht (2018 EU-wide stress test results). Die Ergebnisse zeigen einen deutlichen R√ľckgang der Kapitalquoten der betrachteten Banken als Folge eines schweren makro√∂konomischen Stressszenarios. Der 2018er Stresstest der EBA umfasst 48 Banken aus 15 EU-L√§ndern und deckt damit ca. 70% der gesamten Verm√∂genswerte des EU Bankensektors ab. Die Ergebnisse des Stresstest sind auch ein wichtiger Input f√ľr den aufsichtlichen √úberwachungsprozess des EZB.

EBA Stress Test 2018 – PwC Event with speakers from the EBA, European banking institutions and our PwC stress testing experts

In June, the European Banking Authority (EBA) published its 2018 EU-wide stress test draft methodology, the related templates and the list of banks covered.

49 EU banks have been nominated by the EBA to participate in the exercise but the ECB has already required additional SSM banks to participate as well.

The final methodology will be published as the exercise is launched, at the beginning of 2018, with the results to be published in mid-year 2018.

The methodology covers all relevant risk areas and, for the first time, will incorporate IFRS 9 accounting standards. This will present banks with additional challenges, from producing IFRS 9 compliant figures as of January 1st, 2018 to calculating stressed risk parameters (PD, LGD, lifetime EL) and stage migration.

The results will inform the 2018 Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process (SREP), challenging banks‘ capital plans and leading to relevant supervisory outcomes. The exercise will also provide enhanced transparency so that market participants can compare and assess the resilience of EU banks on a consistent basis.

To help guide you through this critical exercise, please join us to hear about:

  • The 2018 EU-wide stress test, the main changes from 2016 and the supervisory context
  • The main methodological changes impacting and affecting credit risk and the other areas.
  • Ways of handling the implementation of IFRS 9 in the stress testing methodology
  • How best to integrate the stress tests with the capital framework and other processes and best practice

To address your questions and provide insights, we have invited a prominent group of speakers from the EBA and European banking institutions. In addition, PwC stress testing experts will be in attendance and present throughout the event.
