BlackRock's Novick Can't Even Envision Mutual Fund Stress Tests

News summary by MFWire's editors

Mutual fund stress testing is not only unneeded, it doesn't even make sense, at least in the eyes of BlackRock [profile] vice chairman Barbara Novick.

Novick talked to Simon Jessop and Huw Jones of Reuters, who report that "The Bank of England is committed to testing the mutual fund sector's overall ability to withstand widespread redemptions, after a survey it conducted last year showed that funds were overly optimistic about their ability to cope."

Novick pushed back against the BoE's idea.

"I'm not sure what stress test people are even talking about when they say 'it will test all funds'. Really? What category? What does that look like? So, I can't even envison what that test would be or why it would be meaningful," Novick tells Reuters. "If you just look at one piece of the eco-system, you're missing the dynamics of how the market works."
