    Briefing on the U.S. CCAR & European Stress Test Scenarios

    Following last week’s release of the Federal Reserve’s Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) scenarios for 2021, join Mark Zandi and the Moody’s Analytics team as they discuss the CCAR scenarios.

    The group will also consider the stress test scenarios recently released by Prudential Regulatory Authority in the U.K. and European Bank Authority in the European Union.

    Our experts will answer key questions, including:

    • How severe are the stress test scenarios?
    • Are the scenarios internally consistent?
    • What are possible narratives driving the scenarios?
    • How do this year’s scenarios compare with last year’s?
    • How do the Fed, PRA, and EBA scenarios compare with each other?
