Innovating Payments Top 3 News Headlines for the Week of April 30, 2023

Welcome to NEACH's Innovating Payments Top 3 News Headlines for the week of April 30, 2023. News of the aftermath of banking failures or near-failures continues to roll full steam ahead. The Federal Reserve just issued its findings around the Silicon Valley Bank failure, concluding, "Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) failed because of a textbook case of mismanagement by the bank." Then, on the heels of that report's release, regulators seized and closed First Republic Bank today, selling its deposits to JPMorgan Chase. In addition, the FDIC is expected to "publish a comprehensive overview of the federal deposit insurance system on Monday," a.k.a., today.

The review will be the third report issued in the wake of the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank in March, when regulators ended up backstopping all deposits - including those above the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp's guarantees of up to $250,000 per person, per bank - in an attempt to prevent contagion to the banking system.
