The Banking Crisis Enters Stage II

The banking crisis is NOT over, it has shifted into second gear. Many regional banks now face existential crises driven by the spillover from coordinated bank runs at SVB/Signature. Time for bank executives, boards, and counsel is running out to prevent bankruptcy and/or FDIC fire-sale.

Bank Risk Monitor can help you
navigate through this mess.

Selected regional bank stock prices show the effect of the contagion post-SVB. Equity investors are categorizing banks into "good" and "bad". Those that buy fire-sale assets (FCNCA and NYCB) will be rewarded while others are punished. For most regional banks now, the game is to avoid the lowest "bad" rating of "zombie" (FRC).

It is a very difficult time to be running a bank.

In Senate testimony, the Fed claimed Silicon Valley Bank failed because: 

Management failed to appropriately address clear interest rate risk;

Management failed to appropriately address clear liquidity risk;

Management missteps in uninsured deposits; and

Management missteps in heavy losses on securities portfolios. 

*If this terminology is foreign to you, don't despair, Bank Risk Monitor can explain and help you distinguish your bank from others.

Now, wait a minute! ALL banks face these issues. Is your bank immune to similar criticism? The banking industry has an asymmetric information ("lemons") problem right now.* 

The most direct way to solve a lemons problem is through independent verification.
