Summary
For arbitrary loss functions we determine explicitly the worst case
scenario over the Kullback-Leibler sphere. This result makes arbitrary
risk models accessible to systematic stress testing. The worst case
scenarios identified with this method are plausible, severe, and suggest
risk reducing action. Practical implementations of this method do
not require any numerical optimisation. The method is illustrated
in a number of example applications: linear and quadratic portfolios,
stressed credit default and transition probabilities, stressed default
and transition correlations.
