With solid understanding of the true risks and rewards faced by companies in dynamic markets, the company is widely recognized for its ability to develop innovative approaches to meet the unique financial needs of its clients. SVB Financial Group began serving the technology and life science markets at a time when they were not well-understood by the financial services industry and when many of the leading companies in these industries were just getting started. At that time, many of these companies had yet to show profits and were not considered creditworthy by local community or regional banks. Over nearly three decades, SVB Financial Group has become one of the most respected names in the financial services industry. The company has created innovative solutions for some of the world's most successful technology and life sciences companies. These companies face unique challenges and require special services, such as finding the right venture capitalist or angel investor, securing capital to support rapid growth, or driving overseas expansion. SVB Financial Group offers products and services specifically tailored to meet our clients' needs at every stage of corporate growth. SVB Financial Group's businesses include Silicon Valley Bank, SVB Capital, SVB Analytics and SVB Private Bank. Today, SVB Financial Group has more than 1,400 employees and $19.4 billion in total assets. The company operates offices throughout Silicon Valley in Santa Clara, Menlo Park — the center of California's venture capital community, Palo Alto and Pleasanton.
