Investigating/testing/auditing for hidden risks.
Update on 05 Dec 2013: Scheduled to take over responsibility for Europe’s largest banks at the end of 2014, the European Central Bank started its latest “stress test” on the risk management being exercised by the 128 largest European banks. This included 24 German ones, of which ARD tagesschau.de listed the following: Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank, some Landesbanks, DZ Bank, Hamburg Sparkasse and the Wüstenrot & Württembergische (not a bank but a “financial company”; many pies). Structures and solutions for the stress test were not yet entirely defined. National finance ministers were meeting to decide who would be responsible for banks found to have too many hidden risks: Italy wanted Europe to be on the hook for bailing them out, for example, and Germany wanted the national governments to be responsible first. The stress test was expected to last nearly one year.
