Silicon Valley Bank - Lessons from the Crisis Scenario

Silicon Valley Bank - Lessons from the Crisis

The Silicon Valley Bank - Lessons from the Crisis workshop is organized as a 3-hour workshop, which can be attended by staff from various institutions, and as an in-house workshop, i.e. organized for the client's employees according to their requirements.

Objectives of the seminar

The goal of the workshop is to provide participants with the broadest possible insight into the mechanisms that contributed to the Silicon Valley Bank collapse in March 2023 (the largest bank failure since 2008).
Backed by available data, primarily from the bank's annual reports and Fed reports, we will work together to analyze the bank's situation prior to its collapse. Among other things, the workshop will explore the aspects of regulation, supervision, and internal governance that contributed to SVB's collapse. We will then summarize the events leading to the bank's failure and the main reasons that ARM believes the failure occurred.

For whom it is intended

The workshop is intended mainly for risk managers, ALM employees and internal auditors, but also for all others who are interested in the stability of the banking system or just want to learn what not to do when managing a bank.
