The bankruptcy of Silicon Valley Bank (hereinafter referred to as SVB) is a financial disaster that is shocking and regrettable, as well as a financial lesson worth thinking and learning. The bankruptcy of SVB not only brought huge shock and loss to its customers and investors, but also to the US and global financial markets, and also put forward new challenges and requirements for banking business and supervision. It can be drawn from SVB's bankruptcy, the two main bodies of the bank and government, to gain insight into diversification and balance of banking operations, asset and liability matching and management, as well as the government's strong economic policies, so as to avert a similar financial crisis and foster the sound and steady progress of the financial sector.
