  • Earlier this week, fellow fund management giant BlackRock disclosed a boosted holding in Silvergate as of year end, taking its stake to 7.2% from 6.3% previously.

    Fund manager Vanguard is also a sizable owner of Silvergate, showing an 8.59% holding in the company as of Dec. 31, 2021, according to a filing in February 2022.

    Alongside a big rally in crypto-related stocks Thursday, shares in Silvergate are soaring 38% and are now higher by 30% year to date. They remain lower by 80% year over year thanks in general to the crypto bear market and in particular by the bank’s relationship with failed crypto exchange FTX.
