First Republic Collapse: Is The Banking Crisis Getting Worse?

May 01, 2023

Hey Guys,

As I’m sure you’ve heard, First Republic was seized by the FDIC and immediately sold to JP Morgan over the weekend. This news was surprising but not unprecedented. Markets have been expecting this ever since the banking crisis in March.

This is because First Republic had a similar profile to Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank: large unrealized losses and lots of uninsured deposits. These three banks aren’t the only ones with these risk factors, so is the banking crisis over?

For now, it looks like it might be, and this could be bad news for markets. I suspect the dip we saw earlier this week was in part due to the expectation that the Fed would print money to bail out First Republic. It didn’t happen, but maybe it will next time.
