Abstract:

A concise background regarding the recent financial and regulatory developments in Europe and Turkey will be provided from a practitioner’s point of view. A stress testing exercise will also be carried out as it has become a fundamental regulatory tool in the post-crisis era, which can be used to determine the vulnerability or assess the resiliency of financial sector. Since such a case study would require the use of proprietary data and models, we will briefly outline this approach through a simple hypothetical example.
