This session will take you through what you must do. The latest Sector Risk Profile from the RSH tells boards to run stress tests nine, yes nine, times. So, it’s a big deal, the RSH see it as vital to the health of the sector.

That’s why we are putting on a session with the RSH to brief you on stress testing. Getting it right is good for your tenants, good for your business and good for your reputation. Your work on stress testing is scrutinised at each and every IDA. We have seen plenty of downgrades for poor stress testing. This session will explain precisely what you must do to avoid this fate.

    “We expect the boards of private registered providers to be able to demonstrate that they have considered both the long-term, cyclical nature of economic factors that impact on the business as well as internal business risks and one-off shocks. All IDAs involve close consideration of a provider’s compliance with our specific expectations regarding detailed and robust stress testing.”
