Under the terms of the merger agreement, Boston Private shareholders will receive 0.0228 shares of SVB common stock and $2.10 of cash for each Boston Private share they own, representing a total consideration value of approximately USD900 million based on SVB’s closing stock price of USD387.83 on 31 December, 2020.

SVB’s vision is to be the premier financial partner for the innovation economy, providing companies, entrepreneurs and their investors the services they need to succeed via four core businesses: commercial banking, investment banking, private banking and wealth management and fund management. The acquisition of Boston Private accelerates SVB’s private bank and wealth management offering, strengthening SVB’s overall platform and ability to fully meet the financial needs of its clients. 

“Our clients rely on us to help increase the probability of their success – both in their business and personal lives,” says Greg Becker, President and CEO of SVB Financial Group. “Boston Private’s experienced and well-regarded team, robust service offering, and advanced technology platform will significantly bolster our private bank and wealth management capabilities and enhance our ability to offer products and services tailored to the needs of founders, executives and investors.”

Boston Private provides a full spectrum of wealth, trust, and private banking services dedicated to helping clients simplify and strengthen their financial positions. With Boston Private’s product suite and recently redesigned technology platform, SVB can expand its existing wealth management solutions, which include complex strategies to manage concentrated stock positions, to add tax planning, trust services, philanthropy and estate planning, while offering a significantly improved digital client experience. Boston Private’s clients will benefit from greater access to investment opportunities and participation in the innovation economy, as well as the power of SVB’s large balance sheet to support their borrowing needs.

“Together, SVB and Boston Private will be well-positioned to grow and scale our business, leveraging SVB’s deep client relationships and broad reach across the innovation economy to capture a greater share of the wealth management market,” says Anthony DeChellis, CEO of Boston Private. “We look forward to working together to support our clients as they pursue the goals they have for their businesses, families and legacies.”

SVB and Boston Private currently serve clients in complementary major metropolitan markets with an approach that has earned both firms industry-leading Net Promoter Scores.
