Financial stability research

Financial stability research is one of the CNB’s key research areas. Its main objective is to expand the knowledge base needed to facilitate work when deciding on macroprudential and microprudential policy. The CNB’s economic research is focused on four main areas:

  • developing and refining the methodology for stress tests of the sectors of the financial system
  • developing instruments for identifying and quantifying hidden systemic risks
  • analysing the transmission of macroprudential and microprudential instruments
  • understanding the interactions between macroprudential, microprudential and monetary policies

Research results are disseminated not only in CNB Working Papers and CNB Research and Policy Notes, but also in thematic articles in the CNB’s Financial Stability Reports, in economic journals and in blog posts (in Czech only).
