Over the course of only a few days a very successful and high growth bank supporting the venture capital community spiralled into insolvency. In doing so it set of a ripple effect, as panic set in across the banking sector, depositors began to question whether their money was safe. We explore the demise of Silicon Valley Bank, and the very important lessons to be learned across risk management, corporate governance, accounting and regulation.
