As you may have heard, last Friday, the FDIC closed Silicon Valley Bank (SVB). A joint statement has been issued by the Department of the Treasury, Federal Reserve, and FDIC stating that the “U.S. banking system continues to perform its vital roles of protecting deposits and providing access to credit to households and businesses in a manner that promotes strong and sustainable economic growth.
