Here’s why Goldman Sachs and SVB Financial are the gold standard.

Most investors aren't wealthy enough to buy whole companies – but if we could, we'd love to buy SVB Financial (SIVB -1.42%) and Goldman Sachs (GS -0.84%) outright.

In this segment from The Motley Fool's everything-financials show, Where the Money Is, banking analysts David Hanson and Matt Koppenheffer take a question from their mailbag about buying banks and give their rationale behind these two picks.

Time to be greedy about the big banks where others are fearful?
