Join AdvaMed for a member briefing on the state of the banking system and potential implications for companies and venture capital.
The collapse of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), Signature, First Republic, and Credit Suisse came as a shock to many. While the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department acted quickly to keep U.S. account holders whole, the repercussions of these collapses remain to be seen. Join AdvaMed for a member briefing on May 18 from 3:00 – 4:00 pm to discuss the current state of the banking system and potential implications for companies and venture capital. Attendees will hear from Michael Peregrine, a partner with McDermott Will & Emery, who will provide an overview of the Federal Reserve findings on SVB, recent case law, and implications for financial institution reporting and oversight requirements going forward.
This event is free to attend for AdvaMed members. Register here.
