US regulator sells failed Signature Bank assets to another lender

Flagstar Bank will take over deposits and some loan portfolios of failed Signature Bank, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The bank’s 40 branches will open under Flagstar on Monday, but $60 billion in loans and $4 billion in deposits related to Signature Bank’s digital banking business will remain under the regulator’s control. Meanwhile, the FDIC is seeking to sell the failed Silicon Valley Bank in at least two parts after a massive wave of withdrawals from the bank sparked fears of contagion across the industry.
