Banking Crisis in USA: Financial crisis of First Republic Bank deepens despite cash infusion, headlines are being made in newspapers

Banking Crisis in USA: The financial crisis of America’s First Republic Bank seems to be deepening. The beleaguered bank is seeking to raise money through a private issue of new shares, according to The New York Times, which cited people familiar with the situation. Stocks fell on Friday despite industry-led emergency cash flows, CNN reported, as turmoil in the banking sector continued to rouse Wall Street. Talks are underway about a full sale of the bank, according to one of the people The New York Times spoke to.

Bank gets $30 billion cash investment offer but shares fall

Credit Suisse stock slid nearly 8 percent

CNN reported that First Republic’s shares continued their decline and were down nearly 33 percent, even as a consortium of large banks offered to deposit $30 billion into the troubled bank. Credit Suisse stock slid nearly 8 percent as Wall Street remained concerned about the bank’s ability to recover from this week’s turmoil.

UBS is in discussion

Investors are hoping that next week’s Federal Reserve meeting will shed more light on the pace of the economy after a troubled week. Traders see a roughly 63 percent chance for a quarter-point increase, according to the CME Fedwatch tool. The Guardian reported that Swiss banking giant UBS is in discussions to take over all or part of Credit Suisse, a day after the troubled banking giant saw its share price fall despite a $54 billion cash injection.

Financial Times reported

The Financial Times reported that the boards of the two banks are set to meet separately over the weekend in talks initiated by the Swiss National Bank, which provided a lifeline to Credit Suisse. The senior Credit Suisse executive said wealth management clients were leaving the bank. The merger between UBS, valued at $56 billion, and Credit Suisse, valued at $7 billion, had a ‘Plan A’ to stem the collapse in confidence, the FT said citing unnamed sources.

The Guardian gave information

The Guardian reported that UBS was also reported to be analyzing the potential risks to its own business in taking over its Swiss counterpart. Credit Suisse has said that it is a strong, global bank. Chief executive Ulrich Körner said earlier this week, "We meet all regulatory requirements and basically overshoot. Our capital, our liquidity base is very strong."

Credit Suisse is the biggest bank ever to get caught in the growing banking crisis. On Friday, the parent company of the Silicon Valley bank filed for bankruptcy after worried depositors pulled billions from their accounts, and on Thursday Wall Street’s biggest banks launched a rescue package for San Francisco-based First Republic, which took withdrawals.
