About BBVA S.A.

A bank for leaders

BBVA’s roots stretch back more than 150 years, and today it’s one of the 30 largest financial institutions in the world, operating in more than 38 countries and serving more than 47 million customers worldwide. The bank has a strong presence in Spain and Latin America, as well as a significant presence in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. BBVA owns five large franchises: BBVA Bancomer (Mexico’s largest financial institution), BBVA Banco Frances (Argentina’s third largest bank), BBVA Compass (one of the 25 largest banks in the U.S.), BBVA Banco Provincial (Venezuela) and BBVA Continental (Peru). Additionally, the firm’s U.S. banking unit, BBVA Compass, has branches throughout the states of Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, New Mexico, and Texas. In Europe, most of BBVA’s operations are concentrated in Spain, Portugal, France, and the U.K., but BBVA also has offices in Belgium, Germany, and Switzerland. In Asia, the firm has a presence through its strategic alliance with Chinese conglomerate CITIC Group (the bulk of the alliance is in the area of auto loans and private banking) and its alliance with Garanti, the second largest Turkish bank. In 2012, Euromoney named BBVA the best bank in Latin America. In 2011, Fortune ranked BBVA No. 1 in Europe and No. 12 globally in its annual list of the 25 Top Companies for Leaders.
