Member Alert – Recent Bank Closures in California and New York


Shore to Shore wanted to take this opportunity to address the recent news surrounding Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) located in California and Signature Bank located in New York. First, it’s important to understand these shutdowns have nothing in common with the mega bank crisis that happened in 2008. The failures of SBC and Signature appear chiefly the result of financial issues specific to each bank. One other important note about the recent bank closures - in the case of both SVB and Signature; all their bank deposits will be available, and all depositors will be made whole.
