Several U.S. banks fail
On March 10, Silicon Valley Bank suddenly announced its collapse. This is the largest bank failure since the financial crisis in 2008, and also the second largest bank failure in U.S. history.
Following closely behind, on March 12, U.S. Signature Bank was closed by the New York State Department of Financial Services, becoming the third largest bank failure in U.S. history, following Silicon Valley Bank.
