Banking Turmoil – White Paper

March 21, 2023


  • The asset side (loans specifically) of bank balance sheets are in great shape. Very few loans in default.
  • A heavy reliance on uninsured deposits is the problem. This type of financing leaves banks vulnerable to deposit runs.
  • Commentators are comparing this problem to the weakness of wholesale financing used prior to GFC.
  • Possible solutions: Government raises the FDIC insurance limit and/or banks pay more competitive rate on their deposits.
  • We believe Regulators are taking a pro-active, market-based solutions approach towards these issues which may ultimately play to the benefit of the larger financial institutions and perhaps consolidation of the SMID-cap banking system.
