Over the last decade, the asset management industry has experienced strong growth driven by rising asset valuation and steady investors’ inflows. The net asset value of EU alternative investment funds (AIFs) amounted to EUR 4.9tn in 2017, and total net assets managed by EU-domiciled undertakings for collective investment in transferable securities (UCITS) amounted to EUR 9.3tn in 2018 against EUR 6.2tn in 2007.

The development of the fund industry contributes to the diversification of the EU financial system and provides retail and institutional investors with a range of investment vehicles that can be used to gain exposures to specific asset classes (equities, bonds etc.) and investment policies. Therefore, it is crucial to make sure that the fund industry is resilient and is able to absorb economic shocks.

In that context, the Financial Stability Board has issued recommendations to address structural vulnerabilities from asset management activities, which include provisions related to stress tests. This online seminar provides an overview of the framework used by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) for fund stress simulations. The different building blocks of a stress simulation framework are outlined, along with a menu of options that can be selected by stress testers. Beyond the methodological aspects of the framework, the presentation will outline a case study showcasing how the framework can be applied, based on a sample of more than 6,000 UCITS bond funds. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session with the public.
