“History of BBVA

The history of BBVA is the story of many people who, since the mid-nineteenth century, have formed part of over a hundred financial institutions that progressively joined together to widen business horizons.

Today BBVA is working for a better future for people, searching for lasting customer relationships that will change the perception of business. As a result of this work BBVA has become a veritable point of reference at international level as a highly-regarded, award-winning bank.

BBVA has its eyes firmly fixed on the future and is a pioneer in adapting to the changing requirements of an increasingly global market, in short, to the bank of the 21st century. This vision is backed by one and a half centuries of history.”
