Financial Stability 1/12
MetadataShow full item record
The Financial Stability report focuses on the prospects for banks’ earnings and financial strength and the risk factors to which banks are exposed. The analysis is based on the same assessment of developments in the Norwegian and global economy as in the previous Monetary Policy Report. It is of particular interest to analyse how robust banks are to severe economic shocks. Stress testing of bank solvency in the Financial Stability report is therefore ordinarily based on alternative scenarios for the economy ahead with a lower probability of being realised than the alternative scenarios analysed in the Monetary Policy Report. The Financial Stability report is published twice a year. The report is presented to the Executive Board for discussion of the main conclusions. On the basis of the analyses and the discussion, the Executive Board adopts recommendations for measures to be implemented by the authorities. The “Executive Board’s assessment” is published in the report and communicated in a submission to the Ministry of Finance. Norges Bank’s Annual Report on Payment Systems provides a broader overview of risk and developments in the Norwegian payment system.
