    IFSB Releases User Guide for its Technical Note 2 on Stress Testing

    June 21, 2017

    IFSB released a user guide to facilitate the use and implementation of the stress testing templates provided in its Technical Note on Stress Testing for Institutions offering Islamic Financial Services (TN-2). The User Guide for TN-2 intends to complement the main technical note while providing additional guidance on the use of the five stress-testing templates set out in TN-2.

    The IFSB’s TN-2, which was issued in December 2016, aims to provide regulatory and supervisory authorities and market players in the Islamic banking industry with the appropriate technical guidance to develop, conduct and assess stress tests. The document addresses multiple types of risks and their interrelated effects on the overall financial position and performance of the portfolio, institution, group or system. TN-2 also provides five basic stress test templates: one each for conducting credit, market, and liquidity risk assessments, for rate of return risk, and for scenario analysis (which combines credit and market risk stress tests). The issuance of this User Guide follows IFSB’s other work addressing stress testing for Islamic banks, which includes:

    IFSB-13: Guiding Principles on Stress Testing for Institutions offering Islamic Financial Services

    TN-2: Technical Note on Stress Testing for Institutions offering Islamic Financial Services

    A sub-chapter on Islamic banking stress testing in the IFSB’s recently released Islamic Financial Services Industry Stability Report 2017
