ACRELive! SVB & Signature Bank: What just happened ? Putting the Failures & Seizures in Context

3/23/2023 - 3/23/2023
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

We’ve all seen the fallout from the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and some of us are now getting calls from clients to explain what happened and discuss possible responses. The College is here for you: join us at Noon EST on March 23 as ACRELive! presents a special emergency session where Peter Nathanial, former Citigroup Head of Risk Oversight and also Group Chief Risk Officer for The Royal Bank of Scotland Group (RBS), William Lashbrook, retired in 2020 as SVP CRE Portfolio Risk and Business Analytics from PNC Bank capping a 47 year banking career, and our own Joseph Philip Forte, a person who has been in the mix during bank workouts, discuss what happened and what to do now. We look forward to seeing you there.
