First Republic Bank, another bank insured by the U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), plunges 70% in pre-market trading hours on Monday. Last week, shares of Silicon Valley Bank’s parent firm SVB Financial Group plummeted 70% in pre-market trading hours, causing regulators to take action.
First Republic Bank (FRC) share price fell 70% to nearly $25 in pre-market hours on March 13. The price closed on Friday at $81.76, down nearly 15%.
The surprising fall in shares across the banking sector is caused by pressure due to continuous rate hikes by the U.S. Federal Reserve. The regulators have closed crypto-friendly banks Silvergate, Silicon Valley Bank, and Signature Bank last week, causing chaos in global markets.
First Republic Bank shares are plummeting despite additional funding of $70 billion from JPMorgan to maintain liquidity. The U.S. Fed also came up with a plan to rescue the banking sector with emergency funding.
