Federal regulators are trying to prevent the
failure of the 16th largest bank in the
country from spreading throughout the
financial system. Silicon Valley Bank (SVB)
was closed by regulators after a run on
deposits. Although panic by depositors
was the immediate cause of the bank’s
collapse the seeds of the bank’s demise
were planted during the Pandemic.
The bank believed that interest rates would
remain low for the indefinite future and
purchased long term bonds. Now we can
see long term bonds as an investment trap
in an inflationary period when the Federal
Reserve is steadily raising interest rates.
Why Buy Long Term Bonds?
A few years ago we wrote an article about
how to invest without losing any
money. The article was aimed at individual
investors and not at banks. During most of
the time since the Financial Crisis, interest
rates were historically low. Investors
flocked into stocks, especially tech stocks,
whose earnings were strong.
Although stocks outperform many other
investments over time, investors can get
caught in volatility cycles and lose money.
Thus, we discussed how one could buy US
Treasuries, corporate bonds, or CDs at a
bank in order to guarantee that the value of
an investment (in dollars) steadily grows with
interest. The downside to this approach is
when you will need your money in a hurry at a
time when interest rates are going up!
What Is a Bond Worth?
The problem that confronted SVC bank was
that they needed to raise capital in a hurry
due to a run on the bank. They had reserves,
but the reserves were in long term bonds that
had become less valuable as rates went up.
The present value of a bond is determined by
a discount rate when current interest rates
are higher than when the bond was issued
and when one expects interest rates to
remain higher for life of the bond.
The interest rate for a 10-year Treasury as
of August 2020 was 0.57% and in January
of 2023 it was 3.55%. Depending on what
one expects future interest rates to be for
the next several years, the current value of
a 2020 10-year Treasury could be as little
as half of the face value! When you may
need your money as cash in a hurry, this is
where you can see long term bonds as an
investment trap.
SVB Crisis Spreads to Regional Banks
SVB had a lot of assets. According to the
FDIC at the end of 2022 SVB had deposits
of $175.4 billion and total assets of $209
billion. Anyone with even multiple accounts
with SVB will be fully covered by FDIC if
their balances are less than $250,000.
Those who are hurting are companies with
greater balances, payroll to make, and
expenses to cover.
Early estimates are that, barring a buyout by
a large bank, many depositors will get
about half of their money back. The
immediate problem going forward is that
this may turn into a crisis that spreads
throughout regional banks if depositors
take their money and move to larger
banks.
Signature Bank Closure
The next in line after SVB was Signature
Bank in New York. This regional bank
focused on real estate loans and then, just
before the start of crypto winter, started
welcoming crypto deposits as well.
This strategy seems to have caused a
situation similar to that of SVC with its long
term bonds and they closed their doors to
avoid a bank run from forcing the issue.
The FDIC has taken over this bank as well.
Meanwhile the KBW regional banking
index is down by more than 20% over the
last month.
Tracking a System Problem Back to the
Initial Issue
Banks are required to have reserves to handle
problems like the run on SVB bank or the
closure of Signature Bank. However,
investment decisions made before the bank
gets in trouble are often at the root of the
issue. In the case of SVB it was that they
believed that interest rates would stay low
forever and in the case of Signature it was
that crypto was going to go up forever (largely
due to low interest rates).
The reason that banks can pay interest is
that they put deposits to work on loans and
other investments that generally earn a
higher return than the interest that they
pay. When that business model is flipped
on its back with more money going out
than coming in, the bank is at risk for what
happened to SVB, Signature, and perhaps
more regional banks in the days ahead.
