Fed To Probe Its Supervision Of SVB, Release Review By May 1
The collapse of the lender, which was overseen by the San Francisco Fed, was the biggest bank failure in more than a decade.
(Bloomberg) -- The Federal Reserve said Monday it is launching an internal review of its supervision and regulation of Silicon Valley Bank after its failure last week.
The review, which will be led by Vice Chair for Supervision Michael Barr, will be publicly released by May 1, the Fed said. The collapse of the lender, which was overseen by the San Francisco Fed, was the biggest bank failure in more than a decade.
“The events surrounding Silicon Valley Bank demand a thorough, transparent, and swift review by the Federal Reserve,” Fed Chair Jerome Powell said in a statement.
Barr in the statement said regulators “need to have humility, and conduct a careful and thorough review of how we supervised and regulated this firm, and what we should learn from this experience.”
