Course Description

Much has happened in the past ten weeks regarding bank failures, inspiring this much-anticipated update on our seminar in early April. In this session, Jay Hack will answer the question: What is the current (and future) state of the banking industry in the United States?

Our first topic explored the failures of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) and Signature Bank. This webinar aims to help you understand why First Republic Bank was also added to the bonfire. These events have left many wondering about the latest developments with FDIC insurance, and what they can do to protect their deposits and the deposits of their clients. Join this informative session to understand the strategies can you adopt to maximize FDIC insurance (if the $250,000 limit on deposit insurance is reinstated), as well as explore what fundamental weaknesses may exist that threaten significant failures in the future.

Course Description:

  • Evaluate the current and future state of the banking industry in the U.S. and the systemic weaknesses that threaten it

  • Conclude the reasoning for the recent failure/closure of First Republic Bank

  • List the recent updates with regard to FDIC insurance and determine the best ways to protect deposits from the risk of bank failure
