This article focuses on the raised debt rating of SVB Financial Group by Standard & Poor's Corp. (S&P), a month and a half after the Santa Clara, California, company completed a restatement of its 2000-2005 financial reports. S&P said the upgrades were driven by SVB's ability to increase lending each quarter last year in its core lending lines: technology, life sciences, private equity, and the wine industry.
