Clarifications and corrections
In articles published on 11 and 13 March reporting on the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank in the United States, Dailymail.com wrongly described Jay Ersapah as the Chief Risk Officer and the head of risk for the bank in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. The coverage, which was also promoted via Dailymail.com’s Twitter platform, included social media comments which suggested Ms Ersapah was the Head of Financial Risk and Model Risk Management at the US bank and was on the US bank board of directors. In fact, Ms Ersapah was the Head of Financial Risk Management and Model Risk for Silicon Valley Bank UK Limited, which was a stand-alone entity, and she had no responsibilities for the US bank which collapsed. We are happy to clarify that she was not on the board of directors and she has also asked us to make clear that she was not an executive of either the UK or US bank. We apologise to Ms Ersapah for the errors.
