Rates we got a federal government that Left interest rates at almost zero or Below for over 10 or 15 years after the Financial crisis and anybody with a half A brain knew where that would end up When they finally had to raise them you Got this Silicon Valley Bank situation Now which we're going to get into big Time here in a second And but you have this one digital asset You have the only asset Who has who has been under attack for Two plus years while all the others were Left alone That is about to see the light at the End of the tunnel the potential light at The end of the tunnel with a case that's Almost over What are the chances folks now if there Ever was a Black Swan event Silicon Valley Bank is it I want to make sure That everybody in my audience Understands how this happened and what a Big deal it is first let's go over how It happened this was from uh this guy You can read his thread to it's great Mario noffal I guess that's how you say His name he does a lot of these Twitter Spaces and he says how Moody's warning Downgrades to downgrade Silicon Valley Bank caused the collapse on Friday and It's important when you hear all this Story now that we know that Moody's is What initiated it let me tell you who
Some of the top shareholders in Moody's Are by the way because I looked uh Berkshire Hathaway Warren Buffett's form Is the number one you've got Vanguard You've got BlackRock you got State Street all of the people Who represent when Gary Gensler get when He kills uh tries to kill crypto and not And tear down all the prices so his Wall Street buddies can come in and buy Well those guys are in that list okay Because they are Wall Street so so just By coincidence and by the way s p and Moody's remember me telling the story From the remember the the uh the uh What's the movie I'm drawing a blank on The on the was it too big to fail Whatever Um the the Um no the big shorts the one I'm Thinking about too big to fail you need To watch because that's what the feds Are doing right now this weekend over Silicon Valley Bank but the uh The uh big short in The Big Short There's a scene where the guy's saying Wait a minute all these mortgage-backed Securities he's meeting with the S P 500 And this lady's like he's like well let Me get this straight so you're rating These mortgage-backed Securities that Are being created by these Wall Street Firms and they're paying you to rate Them
And she's like well that's just the way It works I'm sorry well that's what Happened in the financial crisis well Those same Wall Street firms who are Paying Moody's and s p who who are the Reason behind their whole existence Because they pay them those same people The Moody's is the company that that put All this thing in motion with Silicon Valley Bank that that catches my Attention now You need to hear how it happened this is All about this all started actually in 2019 as many people know there was a Giant influx 2019 2020 2021 in startup Funding startup funding started going up Like crazy to give you guys some context Within one year Silicon Valley Bank Deposits tripled Tripled we're talking about billions and Billions of dollars then At their uh as their deposits grew they Had to get yield on those loans I mean Any any good bank would do that uh in an Effort to get yields they tried to look In the market to get guaranteed yields Remember most of those deposits were Coming from startups most of the loans That they were giving out were to Startups so they were looking for Something that was a pretty good Guarantee to counteract that that growth In deposits uh and so they went and I Know that this is these three words are
Not liked but mortgage-backed Securities Which were pretty stable at the time at 1.56 10-year duration they put money Into that and uh and everything was Looking great they have lots of deposits They had a giant loan book everything And yield was looking good for that time Fast forward to last week and this is When it gets really crazy Moody has a Phone call with the senior Executives at Svb over the last year everything has Collapsed as many people know in the Tech industry valuations have collapsed Deposits went down and and interest Rates rise was went up so fast that that 1.56 yield was was a lot lower than what You could get from Bonds in the market Bonds in the market uh you know and so Therefore the value of the Mortgage-backed Securities plummeted Right why would you hold the security uh That could lose money when there's a Risk-free interest rate you can get from Bonds that did what Grant and and others Were saying and so ultimately when Moody Sat down with them they said we're going To give you a major downgrade because Everything is looking like so Because svb at that time was burning Through cash the stock price was Tumbling they were they were and they Had to find a way to meet their losses So uh uh by the way along the way on February 27th
The CEO and the CFO of Silicon Valley Bank sold a large proportion of their Shares in the middle of last week though For forwarding back to recent movies When they told them that they were going To downgrade their credit uh svb started Scrambling They began consultation with Goldman Sachs uh the CEO Greg Becker actually Flew out to New York met with uh Moody's To discuss the situation try to calm the Whole situation down they then in a Scramble had to sell uh 20 20 billion uh 20 billion worth of the MDS which they Sold at uh a giant loss leading to a 2.25 billion dollar deficit which They've now had to cover so they went And they got and this is where it gets Crazy they actually found an investor to At least cover 500 million of this General Atlantic But they were the other investors were On they had other investors but you know The timeline was so short But when they went to General Atlantic To get this money they were going to Have the deal done by the morning before Everything opened But the but the disclosures were not Complete the information comes out the Downgrade comes out the information Comes out about the loss a bank and then Founders fund somehow I'm not going to Say how but Founders fund YC Tech Stars
