PacWest, a holding company for Pacific Western Bank, relied on deposits and external financing. The value of its deposit base was linked to Federal Reserve interest rates. After aggressive rate hikes in 2022 and 2023, several smaller banks, like Silvergate and Silicon Valley Bank, faced liquidity crises, echoing concerns for PacWest due to its venture-focused model and concentration in specific industries. PacWest initially reassured its financial strength but later faced negative reports and a substantial deposit decline. Subsequently, PacWest entered an agreement to be acquired by Banc of California. Investors alleged that PacWest's management failed to disclose the risks of interest rate hikes and the vulnerability of its deposit base, leading to a significant decline in its stock price.
