Bawag P.S.K. has chosen software from analytics leader SAS to conduct required yearly regulatory stress tests and supplemental quarterly evaluations. Financial stress tests simulate a bank’s ability to deal with economic and financial crises. Bawag P.S.K., Austria’s fourth-largest bank, will use SAS Analytics to build an analytical environment for stress tests and simulations.

In addition to handling required regulatory stress tests related to Basel II/III regulations, SAS Analytics enables Bawag P.S.K. to quickly run complex simulations for internal risk management. Simulations range from standardized scenarios that reflect macroeconomic developments to shocks, such as rapid changes in currency and interest rates. The bank can also simulate the effects of internal changes and test how new strategies or products might affect its overall portfolio.

"The new infrastructure allows us to fulfill our regulatory obligations and provide economic benefits to the bank," said Bawag P.S.K. Head of Strategic Risk Christian Niemetz. "With SAS, we have a proven platform to create other applications. In addition to credit risk, we can include more risk categories and further develop our risk reporting."
Platform for stress tests and management simulations

Bawag P.S.K. Chief Risk Officer Stefan Barth said that stress tests are not only a regulatory requirement, but are increasingly becoming a management tool. “Running simulations reliably and efficiently increases security for the bank and its customers. It also creates a competitive advantage for the bank.”

”Financial stress tests are useful in projecting potential capital shortfalls an institution could face given a set of adverse conditions,” said SAS Head of Global Risk Operations Tom Kimner. “Proper knowledge of these tools and prudent management and oversight are also needed to protect an institution’s financial strength.

"While compliance is increasingly important, simply meeting regulatory requirements is no guarantee of success. It's especially important that banks like Bawag P.S.K. have sound risk management practices in place and that SAS works closely with them to understand and incorporate these practices into an analytics-powered solution."
