US Federal Reserve calls for new rules to avoid bank collapse

Shafaq News=The US Federal Reserve on Saturday urged to renew a set of rules for medium-sized banks to avoid the problems that led to the collapse of Silicon Valley, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.

Michael Barr, the Fed’s vice chairman for supervision, said supervisors did not fully appreciate the magnitude of the vulnerabilities in the banking sector as the Silicon Valley problem began to get complicated.  


“When the reserve sensed some complications in Silicon Valley, it did not take sufficient steps to ensure that the bank fixed these issues quickly enough,” Barr said.

“The mistakes made by the Fed regulators were driven in part by changes that generally relaxed the rules on medium-sized banks,” he opined.

“These changes have hindered effective supervision by reducing standards, increasing complexity and promoting a less assertive supervisory approach,” Barr continued.
