Background

This discussion paper is part of a broader effort to enhance EIOPA’s stress testing framework. In 2019, EIOPA initiated the enhancement of its methodology for bottom-up stress testing with its first paper on Methodological Principles of Insurance Stress Testing. This was followed by work on specific stress testing related topics such as the assessment of liquidity positions under adverse scenarios and of vulnerabilities towards climate-related risks, leading to the publication of the second paper on Methodological Principles of Insurance Stress Testing with a focus on Liquidity and the third paper on Methodological Principles of Insurance Stress Testing with a focus on Climate Risks.
