About This Webinar

PRMIA will be in conversation with David Buckham, founder and CEO of Monocle, about why banks fail. David's recent book, with the relevant title "Why Banks Fail" will be the main topic, allowing a related discussion about recent bank failures like Silicon Valley Bank, the overall banking system and David's own first hand experience of seeing other banks fail. With the book's subtitle being "Unrelenting Bank Runs, The Conundrum Of Central Banking & South Africa’s Place In The Global Order", there will also be a look at banking in South Africa versus other nations like the United States of America.

About the Book: Why Banks Fail: Unrelenting Bank Runs, The Conundrum Of Central Banking & South Africa’s Place In The Global Order by David Buckham, with Robyn Wilkinson & Christiaan Straeuli In a world where banks are perceived as unshakeable fortresses, there is a worrying truth that lies just beneath the surface: banks are far more fragile and fail more frequently than we choose to believe. In the US alone, more than 560 banks have failed since the turn of the century. In South Africa, the collapse of Saambou in 2002 sparked the A2 Banking Crisis, which saw half the country’s banks deregistered in the aftermath. In 2023, the high-profile failures of SVB, First Republic Bank, Signature Bank and Credit Suisse dominated global headlines and set off waves of panic across the international banking landscape. - Why do these large financial institutions with hundreds of billions on their books fail out of the blue? - What role do central banks play in these dramatic failures? - How can the global financial system be reformed to be more resilient, and what path should South Africa take?
