Following the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank on March 10, and the subsequent UBS takeover of Credit Suisse 9 days later, Alex Viall and Rob Mason explored what had happened, why it happened, and what – despite their differences – the two banks had in common.

Watch this 30 minute webinar to hear Alex and Rob (ex-FCA and ex-compliance/surveillance) discuss:

+ Why both these banking bastions failed

+ Whether we will see regulatory reform, or whether conduct is to blame

+ The increasingly concerning role of social media and frictionless payments in market activity

+ Whether the events of March 2023 are a flashback to 2008
