Update on Silicon Valley Bank

Schroder UK Public Private Trust plc (the "Company") provides this update following recent developments related to Silicon Valley Bank ("SVB").

Latest developments

Following the closure of SVB by the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation on Friday 10 March 2023, the Company welcomes the statement(2) on Monday 13 March 2023 from The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") confirming the transfer of all deposits and substantially all assets of the former Silicon Valley Bank of Santa Clara, California, to a newly created, full-service FDIC-operated 'bridge bank' in an action designed to protect all depositors. As such, SVB depositors will have full access to their money beginning the morning of 13 March 2023, when Silicon Valley Bank, N.A., the bridge bank, opens and resumes normal banking hours and activities.

The Company further welcomes the statement(1) on Monday 13 March 2023 from the Bank of England ("BoE") that it has taken the decision to sell Silicon Valley Bank UK Limited ("SVBUK"), the UK subsidiary of the US bank, to HSBC UK Bank Plc. This action has been taken to stabilise SVBUK, ensuring the continuity of banking services, minimising disruption to the UK technology sector and supporting confidence in the financial system. The BoE and HM Treasury confirmed that all depositors' money with SVBUK is safe and secure as a result of this transaction. SVBUK's business will continue to be operated normally by SVBUK. All services will continue to operate as normal and customers should not notice any changes.


In the spirit of full transparency, we would like to update you on the Company's direct and indirect exposure to SVB.
