The exercise will test the resilience of the current business models of the largest banks, insurers, and the financial system to climate related risks and, therefore, the scale of adjustment that will need to be undertaken in coming decades for the system to remain resilient. In December 2021, BoE plans to announce the decision on whether to run a second round of the exercise. In the event of a second round, BoE will publish results at the end of the first quarter of 2022.
