CCAR and DFAST Stress Testing Compliance & Reporting


CCAR and DFAST Compliance and Reporting

Kamakura offers the only fully integrated and scalable stress testing solution that is provided as a service with comprehensive support for data management, report computation and model validation.

Kamakura offers a comprehensive suite of managed services and will co-ordinate and execute supervisory stress tests, from data capture and model calibration to scenario generation and interpretation of outputs supplementing the work of internal bank personnel.

Kamakura’s expertise in loss modelling and stress testing leverages three longstanding Kamakura business lines:

  • Enterprise Risk Management software
  • Outsourcing of risk management services
  • Default model research and development

Kamakura default models predate the regulatory stress test scenarios by more than a decade and have been continuously tested, re-tested, and refined over that time.

Kamakura offers public and private firms models which can produce loss estimates for:

  • Commercial Real Estate
  • Commercial & Industrial Loans
  • Mortgage Loans
  • Consumer Lending
  • Credit Cards

Kamakura’s Stress Testing Service is scalable to easily accommodate changes to the regulations, balance sheet changes, changes to the risk factor sets, and indeed go well above the standard regulatory requirements outlined. The regulatory risk factors are incorporated into the models and can be changed easily with just a button-click. 



Each risk factor can be stressed individually as well as collectively, and the system adjusts automatically to accommodate the revised volatilities and correlations that may apply to the risk factor set as a whole.



CCAR / DFAST Reporting
The Kamakura CCAR/DFAST stress testing solution offers comprehensive regulatory reporting based on the templates provided, and these are automatically populated based on the stress tests that are run. These can be directly presented to the regulators. Kamakura Corporation provides a framework that easily and automatically creates and submits FR Y-14, FR Y-16 and DFAST reports, and the means to provide a totally transparent audit trail of the entire process as part of one integrated system, insuring regulatory compliance.

In addition to compliant reports, the system clearly and quickly provides comprehensive audit trails of every item in your FR Y-14, FR Y-16 and DFAST submission for regulators, auditors, board members and other stakeholders. Drill-down and drill-across functionality allows you to easily zoom in on key points for a greater level of detail.
