​A forward-looking approach to credit risk management and capital planning.

How confident are you in your assessment of the potential impact of adverse and severely adverse economic conditions on your institution’s loan losses and capital? What if you could rely on a forward-looking risk assessment that provides immediate feedback regarding capital adequacy for current and ongoing credit risk?

 

With Credit Stress Testing, DCG brings "big bank" analytics to community banks and credit unions. Developed by our team of quantitative and strategic risk management experts, this stand-alone credit stress test service empowers users with practical, thorough documentation designed to exceed growing regulatory expectations.  

​“Institutions need to make stress-testing a priority before conditions begin to shift and it becomes too late to make the meaningful adjustments necessary to maintain a solid capital footing.”
