Summary:

This paper assesses the resilience of Panamanian banks’ to (i) a very severe short-term, and (ii) a significant long-lasting liquidity shock scenario. Short-term liquidity buffers are evaluated by approximating the Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) defined in the Basel III accord. The specific risk of losing a substantial part of foreign funding in the context of de-risking by major international banks is analyzed through a conventional liquidity stress test scrutinizing several layers of liquidity across maturity buckets.
