Orbit36 to present at U.S. Stress Testing Conference
I feel honored to be invited as speaker to the “3rd Annual Best Practices for Stress Testing in Financial Institutions” conference in New York. This premier GFMI event brings together key banking industry experts from leading US financial institutions. It is a great privilege for Orbit36 to present at this major conference, alongside with speakers from JP Morgan, Citibank, MUFG, Wells Fargo and others.
Conference participants and speakers will discuss and share their experience and advanced practice in Stress Testing procedures for their organizations, with a focus on how financial institutions can leverage their stress testing frameworks beyond regulatory drivers such as CCAR.
