Recently, financial stability of the banking sector has been a widely discussed issue. Above all, assessment of the appropriate amount of capital that banks should put aside to guard against various types of risks that they face is a great challenge. One of the techniques that help to answer the question of whether a bank and the banking sector have a sufficient capital buffer for the case of a crisis is called stress testing. Stress testing is a macro-prudential analytical method of assessing the resilience of the financial system to severe but plausible events. The book describes the methodology of stress tests and shows case studies for credit and market risks on real bank-by-bank data in two Balkan countries: Croatia and Serbia. Setting-up a proper framework for countries that have not been covered in detail in the literature and that face limited availability of data was the major challenge of the work. The outcome can reveal potential risks to financial stability. The methods described in this book can be applied to test the soundness of the financial sectors in other emerging markets that suffer from data limitations.

This book contributes to a better understanding of financial system fragility in Bosnia and Herzegovina and similar countries in several ways. It is found that both country and period specifics must be accounted for. Accordingly, each country should develop its own tailored measure of systemic risk, since some of the widely used set of indicators may distort the perception of risk. There are substantial gains in modelling the risks of banking and currency crises as a system. It is demonstrated that even in a country with a simple financial system and dominant banking sector a single model cannot explain the evolution of systemic risk over the cycle. The nature of the risk factors, their relations with the perceived level of fragility, as well as the relationship between the measures of systemic risk were found to differ in pre-shock from the post-shock periods. Finally, it is shown that even simple financial systems are inherently unstable, with destabilizing relationships between the risks of banking and currency crises and developments in the real economy.

Risk Management, the process of measuring the risks, controlling them and implementing measures in order to achieve the desired risk profile, is fundamental to all aspects of a bank’s activities. Due to the liberalization of financial markets, advances in technology and the various risks brought by these developments, the way that banks practice Risk Management has substantially changed during the last years. The important role that an effective Risk Management plays in ensuring banks’ profitability and continuity is widely proven. This survey was conducted to provide a status position on the extent to which Risk Management is practiced by banks in North Cyprus. The survey revealed that risk management systems in TRNC banks are relatively underdeveloped and there is a low level of awareness in banks on the importance of employing an integrated Risk Management framework. There are various gaps that demonstrate the need for developing Risk Management in TRNC banking sector and employing innovative Risk Management tools to manage the risks, non-credit risks in particular.
