    The focus areas in credit risk management include small and medium enterprise lending, lending to large corporates, counterparty credit risk management, and loan classification and provisioning. In terms of liquidity and risk management, the HKMA focus will be on assessing—via internal liquidity stress test and contingency funding management—the capability of banks to cope with liquidity shocks and reviewing risk management practices of banks for algorithmic trading.
