Launching Tomorrow’s Leaders

The Associate Development Program is a unique development and training program that couples critical thinking on business and financial fundamentals and on-the-job experience, supporting various teams, markets, and U.S. geographies.

The foundation of ADP is our hands-on training curriculum. Through classroom style instruction, case study exercises, and live work with SVB in-house facilitators, you’ll develop a fundamental understanding of the unique business models of our clients in the innovation economy.

Associates are embedded with SVB business units to get hands-on training in areas such as credit risk assessment, loan portfolio management, and client management. You will also assist in managing all aspects of teams’ client portfolios.

As a member of the ADP community, you will build lasting relationships with your peers and have significant 1:1 mentorship every step of the way to developing your promising career.

ADP played a critical role in my early career development -- teaching me the basics of venture lending and portfolio management, providing me exposure to multiple credit teams around the country in varying industries, and establishing a robust professional network of talented and like-minded colleagues. The social nature of ADP made for a smooth transition from college to the professional landscape and I would highly recommend ADP to any graduate looking to kick start a career in finance.

ADP is the foundation of my 10-year career at SVB. The exposure I received to different lending teams, product groups, and support staff was invaluable – and I’ve maintained many of these connections years later. As an ADP alum, you have a built-in network of colleagues across the bank.
