The collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank of New York within days of each other recently caused financial headaches for many IREM® members and their clients. To prevent a wider crisis, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, and the Federal Reserve Board joined the FDIC to make all depositors whole at both banks, even those with deposits in excess of the standard FDIC $250,000 insured deposit limit. Industry observers have indicated that the underlying weaknesses that led to these individual bank failures are not widespread. 

But many members are left wondering: Is there anything we can do to help our clients and communities avoid exposure to similar risk in the future?

Even if you aren’t directly responsible for vetting or monitoring the banks that hold your property’s operating or reserve funds, there are some simple steps you can consider taking to proactively minimize risk for you and your clients. Tom Elmer, CPM® and instructor of IREM’s course Budgeting Cash Flow, and Reporting for Investment Real Estate (FIN402), CPM Capstone, and asset management courses, offers this advice:

• Be mindful of your client’s bank balances and consider diversifying deposits across several banks when balances exceed insured limits or distributing excess funds to the owner to relieve your company of fiduciary liability for those funds.

• Check the stock price and financial performance of your clients’ banking institutions. These often react to abnormalities in operations.

• Watch for announcements about your clients’ financial institutions (to monitor the above), and for news that the bank is embarking on potentially risky strategies, like over-concentrating in any single sector. “There is a fine line between bank innovation and taking unnecessary risk,” says Elmer.

Below are some additional resources to share with clients and/ or tenants of your property’s community who are directly affected by these bank closures.

Curated resources on the crisis

What other banks have failed? The FDIC maintains a list of banks that have failed since 2000. 

Are other banks at risk? The Federal Reserve Board has made funding available to other banking institutions across the U.S. to avoid further bank collapses.

How to avoid a scam in the wake of the recent bank closures: Tell your clients they can protect themselves against phishing scams. Let them know that the FDIC will not send unsolicited email notifications regarding their accounts.
If you have an account with one of the banks in question, you must file a claim with the FDIC Claims Portal.
