About our Banking news

Latest news on the banking industry, covering the sector of the economy that provides financial services, including banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions. The industry plays a crucial role in facilitating the flow of money and credit in the economy, providing a range of services to individuals, businesses, and governments.

In recent years, the banking industry has undergone significant changes, including the growth of online banking, the expansion of mobile payment options, and the rise of financial technology (FinTech) companies. These developments have brought new competition and innovation to the industry, as well as new challenges related to cybersecurity and data privacy.

The banking industry has faced many challenges and opportunities in 2023, as the global economy remains fragile and uncertain due to various factors, such as the war in Ukraine, supply chain disruptions, inflation and monetary policy changes.

Recently, the banking industry has suffered turmoil, with several events shaking the global banking sector and causing market volatility and uncertainty. As a result, three US banks collapsed: Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), Signature Bank and First Republic Bank. These banks failed due to their exposure to risky loans and derivatives, especially in the tech and life sciences sectors.

Their collapse triggered a panic among depositors, investors and regulators, leading to the rescue of Credit Suisse, a Swiss bank that faced massive losses from its involvement in several scandals and lawsuits. The bank was bailed out by a consortium of other Swiss banks and the Swiss National Bank, after its share price plunged and its credit rating was downgraded.

The turmoil also had an impact on the UK banking sector, which was exposed to SVB through its UK subsidiary. The Bank of England and HSBC intervened to buy SVB UK for £1 and protect its customers and employees. The deal was done over a weekend and announced hours before the markets opened. The Bank of England also increased its liquidity support to other UK banks to prevent a credit crunch.
