"Nothing new under the sun: Silicon Valley Bank - what went wrong and lessons (re)learned"



Presented by Claire Trythall, Visiting Faculty, BTRM

The demise of Silicon Valley Bank, more than a decade after the publication of Basel III regulation guidelines that essentially reiterated basic principles of balance sheet management, shows that risk management fundamentals cannot be taken for granted at any bank, anywhere. Both interest rate risk management and liquidity/funding risk management appears to have been disciplines that were too challenging for the Exec and Board of the bank to follow. In this webinar Claire Trythall walks through the issues raised and the asset-liability management (ALM) lessons (re)learned that all bankers will take away from a sadly all too familar story of bank failure.
