Recent Collapse of Three Major U.S Banks
The recent collapse of three major U.S banks – Silvergate Bank, Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), and Signature Bank (SNBY) has caused financial contagion for other lenders across the country. Depositors removed approximately $8.8 billion from Charles Schwab Corporation’s prime money market funds due to the instability in the banking industry which is why eleven lenders had to step in and provide a $30 billion bailout to First Republic bank in order to avoid its collapse and restore trust in the banking system.
Bailouts From FDIC, Treasury, and Federal Reserve
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), Treasury Department, and Federal Reserve have been providing bailouts to various banks due to the recent bank failures which included Credit Suisse receiving a 50 billion Swiss franc bailout from the Swiss National Bank following the bailout of SVB and SNBY depositors by the US central bank, Treasury Department, and FDIC.
