First Citizens picks up SVB assets

From the BBC World Service: It's Monday, which means there's another deal in the banking sector. First Citizens BancShares has bought all the loans and deposits of Silicon Valley Bank. Its collapse a few weeks ago triggered a crisis of confidence in the industry, but we've seen European banking shares trading higher today. Plus, a strike by two of Germany’s largest unions has brought public transport there to a near standstill. And, it's 50 years since women were first allowed to work on the trading floors of the London Stock Exchange. We hear from some of the pioneers.
