CCAR 2020 in PolyPaths

PolyPaths offers a detailed stress testing FAQ along that walks through a step-by-step example of building the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) 2020 scenarios in PolyPaths. The document starts with the manual version for illustration of what each step is doing, but then moves into how to automate the entire process including bulk import of the scenario definitions and export of the results. Sample reference files are also available with the scenarios in both CSV and SCN format. Please reach out to us at support@polypaths.com to receive these files.
