    BoE Publishes the Systemic Risk Survey Results for Second Half of 2018

    November 28, 2018

    BoE published the results of the systemic risk survey for the second half of 2018. The survey was conducted between September 17 and October 11. BoE conducts this survey biannually, to quantify and track views of market participants on risks to, and their confidence in, the stability of the UK financial system. The survey is typically completed by executives responsible for risk management and by treasury functions at institutions, including UK banks and building societies, large foreign banks, asset managers, hedge funds, insurers, pension funds, large non‑financial companies, and central counterparties.

    BoE aims to identify market perceptions of sources of risk (emanating either from within UK or externally) that, if materialized in the period ahead, would cause significant loss of confidence in the financial markets in the UK. The key topics covered in the survey include the following:

    • Probability of a high‑impact event in the UK financial system in the short and medium term.
    • Sources of risk to the UK financial system. Respondents were asked to list the five risks they thought would have the greatest impact on the UK financial system if they were to materialize.
    • Most challenging risks to manage as a firm. Respondents were asked to indicate which three of the five risks they identified would be the most challenging to manage if they were to materialize. UK political risk, cyber-attack, and geopolitical risk were the most cited responses.
