Silicon Valley Bank, based in Santa Clara, California, was closed by the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation, which appointed the FDIC as receiver. To protect insured depositors, the FDIC created the Deposit Insurance National Bank of Santa Clara (DINB). At the time of closing, the FDIC, as receiver, immediately transferred to the DINB all insured deposits of Silicon Valley Bank. Silicon Valley Bank had 17 branches in California and Massachu- setts. Mayopoulos joined Fannie Mae in 2009 as EVP, General Counsel, and Corporate Secretary. In 2010, he became Chief Adminis- trative Officer for the government-sponsored enterprise (GSE). He was named President and CEO of Fannie Mae in 2012. Tim has had a long career in financial services. He served as the General Counsel of Bank of America for five years and held senior roles at Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse First Boston, and Donaldson, Lufkin & Jen- rette. Tim serves on the boards of directors of LendingClub, the leading digital marketplace bank in the U.S., and SAIC, a technology in- tegrator for the civilian, defense, and national security agencies of the U.S. government. Tim also serves as a director or advisor to a number of private companies. As of December 31, 2022, Silicon Valley Bank had approximately $209 billion in total assets and about $175.4 billion in total deposits. At the time of closing, the amount of deposits in excess of the insurance limits was undetermined. The amount of unin- sured deposits will be determined once the FDIC obtains additional information from the bank and customers. Lenders/Servicers MR.
