This perspective yields the incremental contribution to systemic risk measure (Chan-Lau, 2010). CONCLUSION The proper measurement of systemic risk requires assessing how the failure of a single firm can propagate through the financial system and the feedback between the financial and the real sectors. State-of-the-art systemic risk measurement frameworks that fully integrate these features are data-intensive and require substantial modelling resources, which may be beyond the scope of a small team of analysts.

Compared with small financial institutions, large financial institutions and conglomerates are better positioned to diversify internally, increasing their resilience against idiosyncratic shocks. However, their balance sheets may be quite similar, making them vulnerable to the same set of common shocks, creating conditions suitable for a “too-many-to-fail” problem (Wagner, 2010). Furthermore, even if an institution is large, management may have strong incentives to pursue projects that do not diversify risk optimally from the perspective of creditors and shareholders alike (Chan-Lau, 2011).

The structural relationship between credit risk and the indicators is estimated using an econometric model adjusting for industry and credit quality effects. The stressed EDF model allows the distribution of default probabilities to change depending on the macroeconomic scenarios. 4).
