Since the global financial crisis of 2008, the bank, which serves some of the world’s most well-known tech investors, became one of the biggest banks to fail.

The California regulators shut down the tech lender and then gave The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation control of it. As receiver, the FDIC will normally sell off the bank’s assets to reimburse its clients, including depositors and creditors.


Less than two days before, the bank had startled Wall Street and its depositors with desperate attempts to borrow money in order to prevent a collapse due to withdrawal requests and a sharp decrease in the value of its investment holdings.

New York Times reports that a person with knowledge of the conversations said that as of Friday morning, the bank was collaborating with consultants on a prospective sale and had stopped trading in its shares following a sharp decline.

The National Bank of Santa Clara was established by the FDIC to hold the deposits and other assets of the failing bank. In a press release, the regulator stated that the new organisation would begin operations on Monday and that cheques written by the defunct bank would continue to be honored.
