The US Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation has seized the assets of Silicon Valley Bank, marking the largest bank failure in the country since Washington Mutual during the height of the 2008 financial crisis.

The bank failed after depositors – mostly technology workers and venture capital-backed companies – began withdrawing their money creating a run on the bank.
