COVID-19 Stress Test Scenario File Offer

The spread of COVID-19 into a global pandemic has resulted in one of the most significant economic events of our lifetimes. The future feels more uncertain than ever, and companies are challenged to choose the right way forward. The word we hear every day on the news is “unprecedented” — but is that actually true? 

We here at Conning believe that, even for events as extreme as those we experience today, there are still lessons to be learned from history. Click here to read our short piece, "Stress Testing in the Pandemic Age", on the similarities between today’s market conditions and economic crises of the past, and how stress testing based on historical scenarios can be used to inform our financial decision-making today. 

If you would like to explore these ideas further, we are making available to our colleagues in the insurance and pension industries free of charge a selection from our GEMS® Stress Test Scenarios package, including a new scenario file based on 2020 YTD data. Enterprise risk modelers can import these files into their existing software platform and analyze the results, giving them new insight into how their company might perform in the months and years ahead. 

If you would like to take advantage of this offer, please fill out the form to the right. Feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] for assistance in using the files, and if you have any questions about how Conning will be incorporating today’s economic data into the calibration of our own enterprise risk modeling software suite, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
