The federal reserve has made a historic 8 rate hikes over the past 18 months, bringing the benchmark rate from near 0% to 4.75%. This rate impacts everything from credit card interest to mortgage rates to car loans to of course freight factoring.
Due in part to these rate hikes and the decisions made at some banks, news has been spreading that some small and even regional banks have become insolvent – a phenomenon that occurs when bad investments by the bank lead to concern among those utilizing the bank and a “bank run” occurs. A “bank run” is when more people request to withdraw their cash than the bank has available, leading to the bank potentially going upside down.
