Credit Risk and Stress Testing of the Banking Sector of the Czech Republic

Petr Jakubík () and Jaroslav Heřmánek

Chapter Thematic Article 1 in CNB Financial Stability Report 2006, 2007, pp 57-68 from Czech National Bank, Research Department

Abstract: This article presents the results of stress tests of the Czech banking sector conducted using models of credit risk and credit growth broken down by sector. The use of these models enables the stress tests to be linked to the CNB's official quarterly macroeconomic forecast. In addition, the article updates the stress scenarios, including simple sensitivity analyses of credit risk for individual sectors. Based on the analysis, an answer is sought to the question of whether the observed growth in credit to the corporate sector and households poses any threat to the stability of the banking sector. The analyses conclude that the banking sector as a whole seems to be resilient to the macroeconomic shocks under consideration.
