Weeks after the collapse of SVB Financial, the parent company of Silicon Valley Bank, I think it's safe to say that there are still lessons to be learned by stakeholders. After all, SVB catered to many growth companies and the stock itself really acted much more like a growth stock in recent years, surging from around $250 per share prior to the pandemic all the way to about $750 per share in November 2021 when the markets were raging.

Veteran columnist Joe Nocera says the best way forward for the banking sector is to regulate, regulate, regulate. Nocera joined Julie Hyman and Brad Smith on Yahoo! Finance Live as the Senate's hearing on banking turmoil was underway. He says he was "stunned" by Fed Vice Chair Michael Barr's testimony statement, which says "it is not the job of supervisors to fix the issues identified; it is the job of the bank's senior management and board of directors to fix its problems." The problems present in the banking sector should be addressed, Nocera says, by bringing back the "sensible regulations" originally imposed in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. Specifically, Nocera mentioned bringing back the stress test for banks, originally introduced under the Dodd-Frank act. The stress test serves as a barometer of how well prepared a bank is to weather uncertain economic conditions. A covered institution must run stress tests on a regular basis, to prove they have sufficient capital to keep afloat under stressful circumstances. Under the Trump Administration, stress test requirements were relaxed significantly; the minimum threshold for banks was raised to $250 billion, and the frequency of tests was reduced across the sector. This allowed smaller banks - like SVB - to slide under the radar. "I think a lot of these problems could have been avoided" had regulations been in place, Nocera says.

2023 has been a wild ride so far. We've seen the biggest bank failure since 2008, the fallout from which left Credit Suisse (CS) in hot water and wrecked havoc on the market. The biggest question on the average investor's mind at a time like this: "Is my money safe?" There are a few things to be mindful of when answering that question, says Dan Geltrude, founder of the accounting firm Geltrude & Company. Start with checking your bank balance, and make sure you're "under the FDIC-insured limits." If your bank is insured by the FDIC, the amount of "coverage you may be entitled to depends on the FDIC ownership category" according to the agency's website. It can all be very overwhelming, but Geltrude says "it is not the time to panic." Running to the bank and pulling out all your money may seem tempting, but Geltrude assures, "we are not at that point. But, again, you want to be mindful of where your money is and what your balances are."
