Liquidity Stress Testing

Pressing current loan investment and deposit cash flows to see how a credit union is affected by changes in anticipated behavior is a basic form of stress testing. Identifying current cash flows and potential changes in the anticipated timing and prices of these cash flows are the focus of this service. Strong balance sheet management always has an eye on the liquidity position of the credit union. Understanding potential stresses from lack of funding for operations, loans, or higher cost funding is essential to proper management.

How will QuantyPhi help your credit union?

To better see exposures, and adjust exposures before they become losses, it is important to follow proper liquidity management techniques. QuantyPhi studies how to analyze and manage current and future liquidity situations and the relevant pricing of liquidity in stressed situations.

What are the benefits of stress testing?

Stress testing allows CEOs, CFOs, regulators, and other credit union leaders to better understand their credit union’s risk exposure to changes in cash flows in the short-term and long-term. This enables them to identify and act upon performance opportunities and potential risk threats. Discovering cash flow sensitivity, and funding costs that may change in an increasing rate environment, helps managers plan a more effective balance sheet strategy.

It’s imperative to understand all available liquidity sources and have a robust plan in place to address which liquidity source will be prioritized depending on the stress scenario in front of you. QuantyPhi can help your credit union stress test your balance sheet under multiple stress scenarios to ensure you maintain sufficient liquidity to meet any potential future needs.
