March 16, 2023 | Mariner Kemper | UMB

The news cycle has been dominated by the banking industry, and specifically developments related to the failures of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) and Signature Bank. I would like to provide an update and perspective that summarizes our reaction to the events and news.

Regarding stock performance, the entire banking sector saw a significant decline in stock prices on Monday. Investors reacted to the news media and other sources without the benefit of context from UMB. After the market closed, we filed a Form-8K to explain our position.

UMB shows up as having a high “unrealized loss” position. It’s important to note that any loss only becomes realized if it is sold prior to maturity.
