The ORX Scenarios Library 2021

  • 28 September 2021

"The ORX Scenario Library is used a reference as well as a guide to identify relevant scenario topics trending across the globe and our local geography. Sometimes, these topics help us to drive internal discussions with stakeholders to identify unexpected risks and associated narratives."
ORX Scenarios subscriber

The ORX Scenarios Library is a comprehensive database for scenario practitioners, allowing ORX Scenarios subscribers to backtest their own internal scenarios against the industry.

Every year, each financial institution that subscribes to ORX Scenarios shares their most severe scenarios through our secure Insight platform. After rigorous quality assurance, we then publish a database of anonymised scenarios with accompanying reports. Our subscribers currently have access to over 1000 scenarios across different business lines, sizes and regions.
