The results indicate that the solvency rate decreased in all assumed shocks, but the effect varies according to the type of risk. as it decreased when the percentage of non-performing loans increased, especially when the worst scenario occurred, and also decreased due to shocks in the sectors that obtained credit from the bank, especially the private institutions sector. As for the interest rate risk shocks, the changes in the latter did not have a significant impact on the solvency rate. As for liquidity risk shocks, the results show the bank's ability to face these shocks. The results of the scenario shocks showed the significant impact of both the solvency rate and the bank’s profits as a result of these shocks.
