Commenting on U.S. banks, U.S. Deputy Treasury Secretary Wally Adeyamo stated, "We’ve seen that over the course of the work week, deposit flows have stabilized in regional and small banks and in some cases, have modestly reversed," during an interview with CNBC.

Systemic protection guarantees given to uninsured depositors in Silicon Valley, Signature Bank and new Federal Reserve facilities which enable banks to access liquidity may have helped to even out bank deposits, Adeyemo told Reuters.
