In 2013 we were approached by a global ﬁnancial institution with signiﬁcant operations in multiple European jurisdictions. They approached Crisis Solutions because they were aware of the work we had done elsewhere on complex ﬁnancial scenarios including contingency funding, reverse stress testing and liquidity management.
Our 2013 engagement required the development of an escalating political and macro-economic scenario with consequent impacts on foreign exchange rates, market volatility, corporate funding and capital movements.The day-long simulation exercise involved the European leadership team and technical teams from a variety of specialist departments. The key ﬁndings from the exercise, which related to both crisis management processes and substantive policy issues, have been embedded into updated contingency plans.
“The exercises really delivered – not only in terms of getting groups of people to work together but it thrashed through the individual differences in how people manage in a crisis.”
