COURSE ON STRESS TESTING FOR BANKING

INTRODUCTION

   Among the major responsibilities of the Bank of Tanzania is to supervise banking institutions to ensure soundness and stability of the financial system that contributes to the growth of the    national economy. Stress testing is a critical tool used by banking institutions as   part of their internal risk management and capital planning. Stress testing also is a key component of the    supervisory assessment process that assists supervisors in identifying vulnerabilities and evaluate banking institutions’ capital adequacy.

  The Bank of Tanzania, in fulfilling its regulatory and supervisory roles, conducts quarterly stress testing of the banking sector. The Bank, when conducting stress testing focuses on the key risks  which are credit, market and liquidity. The results of stress testing might be    used to cause certain directives to banking institutions, which have failed the stress test. In this regard, the Bank of    Tanzania Training Institute, in collaboration with the Directorate of Banking Supervision, has organized the training on stress testing for banking    institutions.
