Economic and financial debates no. 19: MERCURE : A Macroprudential Stress Testing Model developed at the ACPR
The French Supervisory Authority got involved into macro stress testing exercises stress since the first Financial Stability Assessment Program (“FSAP”) led by the IMF in France in 2004. Along “bottom up” exercises led at the national or international level, the ACPR has developed a “top down” stress testing model. This model was primarily focused on credit risks. Over the years, its risk coverage has substantially been extended and this article provides an update.

More attention is now given to contagion effects, sectorial shocks and concentration risks. Financial institutions other than banks are considered. More granular data allow for a more refined analysis.
