Event Summary

Silicon Valley Bank's collapse from textbook asset-liability mismanagement raised questions about US banking supervision and whether more could have been done to identify and address vulnerabilities earlier. This session of Financial Statements takes stock of US bank supervision and related policy questions, including whether the subsequent decision to fully guarantee all of Silicon Valley Bank's deposits was justified and its implications for the banking sector moving forward.
