Dear Fixed Income Professional:
We invite you to register for access to the replay of our recently recorded webcast: Stress Testing Securities in a Post QE2 Market
Since the financial crisis many regulators and agencies such as the OCC, FDIC and the Federal Reserve have increased their focus on stress testing across fixed income asset classes. Stress testing can assist in projecting income, total return and yields on fixed income securities. In this session we will first look at the historical sector performance and examine a few possible market scenarios and their effect on structured, corporates and municipal securities via stress testing. By examining each of these security types, you will have a better understanding of the risks and opportunities that can be uncovered by understanding the details of the security and their behavior under different environments.
