BBVA is both young and old: as vibrant as it is venerable. The Group may have seen more than 150 summers and crossed the Pyrenees at the crack of 20th century dawn, but its international expansion really took off in the 1990’s when it started acquiring top Latin America houses.
Truly global after our decisive moves into the USA, Turkey and Asia (where we can act independently or hand-in-glove with our partners Garanti and Citic), we’re as much as home in Milan or Mobile as we’re in Valdepeñas or… the Rioja. Yet the boldness of our strategy is matched by the sagacity of our business and credit policy.
Statistics? Go on then, let’s have a few. Efficiency ratio: 51,3, leading among European banks (YTD dec. 2014), total assets around €651 billion, with more than 51 million customers lovingly cared for by a staff of some 109 thousand upon whom the sun never sets.
BBVA’s Global Trade Finance team numbers over 425 professionals, but many thousands of fans. Every player contributes her (or his) geographical product or sectorial expertise to the squad but teamwork is all; the enthusiasm unflagging, the approach holistic, the solutions laser-sculpted to the customer’s needs.
And our armoury of trade finance products and services? You name ‘em…
