US regulators step in to shore up banking sector in wake of SVB's collapse

The US Treasury, Federal Reserve and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation have unveiled a plan meant to stem any contagion from Silicon Valley Bank's (SVB) failure on Friday. The Federal Reserve will provide an emergency lending facility that will ensure all of the bank's depositors are repaid in full. Elsewhere, the UK government says SVB's UK subsidiary has been purchased by HSBC and Goldman Sachs says a Fed rate hike is no longer expected because of "stress in the banking system".
