MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--U.S. Bank announced today that veteran securities services executive Jay Martin has joined the bank as president of its global fund services team. Martin brings over 25 years of experience to U.S. Bank, having previously held leadership positions at State Street and Northern Trust.
U.S. Bank's hire comes as the banking industry faces challenges and failures, with four US banks and a major European investment bank experiencing difficulties in early March. Despite this, some options strategists see potential in the financial sector, particularly in bank stocks.
Investors may be interested in U.S. Bank's offerings, which include various CD types with competitive rates. However, the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank serves as a reminder of the importance of careful investment decisions and diversification.
