The Collapse of Silicon Valley Bank, Federal Regulators and Fears of Financial Contagion



The Silicon Valley Bank collapse comes at a time when two other banks collapsed under a week. With Federal regulators responding to the crisis, will the financial contagion be prevented.

There will be turbulence in the short term, but it will all work out.
 
Of course, it will work out in the end but what matters is that this shouldn't have happened in the first place.

Agreed, but such periodic crises are only to be expected given the complexities of the entire system.
 

Markets fall after key Silicon Valley bank collapses



In the largest bank failure since the 2008 financial crisis, the Silicon Valley Bank was shut down by regulators. Wall Street Journal capital markets reporter Corrie Driebusch and CNBC’s Senior Markets Correspondent Bob Pisani joined Meet the Press NOW with their analysis.
 
Idk about letting the regulators wiping its own ***, should let the government do the bailout, with taxpayers money.

When you phrase it like this, it almost completely takes the blame away from the current government. Please note that this is the largest bank failure since the 2008 financial crisis. The policymakers need to get their sh*t together.

ROFL. DC is the grandest circus on the planet, no matter who is in any current government. :D

All the more reason for people to put pressure on these clowns to get their sh*t together.

SVB is a California State bank, so I doubt Fed are going to bail them out with Tax Payer money, FDIC will bail out the investor/customer because they had to, but I doubt they will do anything about shareholder, in fact, I can see FCC probably going to lay charge on the stake holders for non-sustainable risk.

The problem for SVB collapse is due to their maturity risk, it's not like SVB loses all their customer money (like Chase before) with high risk investment, SVB were buying a lot of long term bond and when the Fed increase rate, bond value decreased, and they have to sell their bond to convert so they have enough liquidation for withdrawal, and they can't convert because it's long term and the bond were losing value, hence the collapse.....

I think the DOJ and FCC are going to lay charge on some of the SVB exec.
 

Silicon Valley Bank failure: What recent moves from the US banking regulators suggest



Roger Ferguson, former Federal Reserve vice chairman and CNBC contributor, joins 'Squawk Box' to discuss if the Federal Reserve's moves are enough to stem concerns for other banks, what recent stock performance tells you and more.
 

SVB collapse is second-largest bank failure in US history



Silicon Valley Bank collapsed Friday morning after a stunning 48 hours in which a bank run and a capital crisis led to the second-largest failure of a financial institution in US history.

California regulators closed down the tech lender and put it under the control of the US Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The FDIC is acting as a receiver, which typically means it will liquidate the bank’s assets to pay back its customers, including depositors and creditors.

The FDIC, an independent government agency that insures bank deposits and oversees financial institutions, said all insured depositors will have full access to their insured deposits by no later than Monday morning. It said it would pay uninsured depositors an “advance dividend within the next week.” CNN's Matt Egan reports.
