Bilbao Bizkaia Kutxa was formed on the 16th of February 1990 by the merger of the Municipal Savings Bank of Bilbao and the Provincial Savings Bank of Vizcaya. During this period one of its most widely-acknowledged aspects in Bizkaia has been its Social Projects, which have covered a wide variety of fields in the lives of the people of Vizcaya, ranging from culture to health and also including sports activities, job creation, support for the agricultural sector,â€¦
From an economic point of view it has been characterised by its prudent, serious business management.
At the same time it has been one of the leading driving forces for growth in Bizkaia. It has provided financial support for rural areas and underprivileged social groups, promoted the creation of essential infrastructure for the development of the province (Bilbao Exhibition Centre, Universities, etc.) and has provided support for strategic companies (Iberdrola, Petronor, Euskaltel,â€¦).
In short, BBK has been a savings bank that has not only been able to be competitive and efficient from a financial perspective, but has also contributed to society in Bizkaia and has boosted growth in the province.
