The Federal Reserve Board's Vice Chair for Supervision Barr discloses Silicon Valley Bank's supervision and regulation assessment.

The Federal Reserve Board’s Vice Chair for Supervision Barr discloses Silicon Valley Bank’s supervision and regulation assessment. On Friday, the Federal Reserve Board revealed the findings of an investigation into the management and regulation of Silicon Valley Bank. Michael S. Barr served as the vice chair for control on the assessment committee. The analysis reaches the following four primary conclusions regarding the reasons for the demise of the bank:

Federal Reserve supervisors did not fully appreciate the extent of the vulnerabilities as Silicon Valley Bank grew in size and complexity; when supervisors did identify vulnerabilities, they did not take sufficient steps to ensure that Silicon Valley Bank fixed those problems quickly enough; and The Board’s tailoring approach in response to the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act was inadequate.

Barr, the Vice Chair for Supervision at the Federal Reserve, stated that in light of the bankruptcy of Silicon Valley Bank, there is an urgent need to enhance the supervision and regulation activities of the Federal Reserve based on what we have learned. “This review represents a first step in that process—a self-assessment that takes an unflinching look at the conditions that led to the bank’s failure, including the role of Federal Reserve supervision and regulation,” said the review author. “This review represents a first step in that process.”

The study provides an in-depth discussion of the bank’s management, as well as the supervisory and regulatory concerns involved with the bank’s failure. It goes through the recent supervisory history of Silicon Valley Bank. It includes over two dozen documents that contain the bank’s sensitive supervisory information, such as supervisory letters, examination results, and supervisory warnings. The document also goes over the recent supervisory history of Silicon Valley Bank.

“I welcome this thorough and self-critical report on Federal Reserve supervision from Vice Chair Barr,” stated Jerome H. Powell, the current chair of the Federal Reserve. “I agree with and support his recommendations to address our rules and supervisory practices, and I am confident that they will lead to a stronger and more resilient banking system,” he said. “I am confident they will lead to a stronger and more resilient banking system.”

The study and the papers illustrate the bank’s rapid development and the difficulty that Federal Reserve regulators encountered in discovering its weaknesses and pushing it to rectify them. Both of these topics are discussed in the report. At the bank’s bankruptcy, it had 31 unanswered safe and soundness regulatory warnings, three times the typical amount for banks in its peer group.
