UK and European markets opened mixed as global investors focus on the fallout from the Silicon Valley Bank collapse.

Asia-Pacific markets traded mixed as U.S. regulators announced plans to backstop both depositors and financial institutions associated with Silicon Valley Bank, seen as a move to stem further systemic risk.

Oil prices slipped in morning trade as concerns about possible further U.S. interest rate hikes continue to rattle investors.

Gold prices jumped more than 1% and made a run towards the key $1,900 level as fears of a fallout from the largest U.S. bank failure since the 2008 financial crisis drove investors to the safe-haven asset.

In corporate news, insurer Direct Line was under the cosh after saying it swung to a full-year loss as it took a hit from inflation, and warning that 2023 earnings will be impacted by higher-than-expected claims inflation in the motor business.

In the year to the end of December 2022, the company swung to a pre-tax loss of £45.1m from a profit of £446m the year before, while operating profits slumped 94.6% to £32.1m.
