On September 19, 2023, BLB&G Associate Brittney Balser will speak on the panel “What Happened to This Bank? An Investor’s Perspective on Bank Failures, Contagion, and Fraud” at the Georgia Association of Public Pension Trustees (GAPPT) Annual Trustee School. Along with fellow legal advocates, Brittney will discuss the recent collapse of SVB, Signature Bank, and First Republic, similarities and differences to past financial crises, the role of the SEC and other regulators, and the role funds play in this and similar litigation. The session is one of many offered at this yearly event, continuing the GAPPT’s mission to educate Georgia’s public retirement trustees, plan staff members, and professional service providers on their fiduciary duties.
