”la Caixa” Group

CaixaBank is the result of a banking and financial tradition that began in 1904 with the foundation of Caja de Ahorros y Pensiones de Barcelona, ”la Caixa”, which started out with the management of family savings, and offered its clients a pension insurance a full century before this type of social benefit was established.

From the very beginning, ”la Caixa” was defined by a strong social commitment. Through its Welfare Projects, it developed social and charitable actions to offer solutions to new challenges and social requirements. Additionally, it worked to create of opportunities for people. Thus, a great part of its activity was focused on disadvantaged people with a higher risk of exclusion. In 2014, and for the seventh consecutive year, the funding for Welfare Projects remains at €500 million. 

Furthermore, ”la Caixa”, through Criteria CaixaHolding, ”la Caixa” became Fundación Bancaria Caixa d’Estalvis i Pensions de Barcelona, ”la Caixa”, is developing an investment strategy though stakes in businesses in different economic sectors that are essential for the community, which include in particular Abertis (transportation and communications infrastructure management), Gas Natural Fenosa (energy distribution), Suez Environnement (water and waste management services), SABA (management of parking lots and logistics parks) and real estate services. 

”la Caixa” transferred its financial business to CaixaBank in June 2011 and, later on, in June 2014, ”la Caixa” became Fundación Bancaria Caixa d’Estalvis i Pensions de Barcelona, ”la Caixa”, in compliance with the Law on Savings Banks and Banking Foundations of 27 December 2013.

Within the transformation process, the following agreements were also reached: on the one hand, the dissolution and liquidation of the “la Caixa” Foundation, which transferred its activity to the Banking Foundation, and on the other hand, the transfer of the ”la Caixa” shares in CaixaBank in favor of Criteria CaixaHolding - integrally held by ”la Caixa” - so that the ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation goes on to hold a share in CaixaBank through Criteria CaixaHolding.


CaixaBank works to consolidate its leading position on the Spanish market and to continue increasing its market share through a comprehensive offer of products, services and channels, a specialised model of attention and its vocation for innovation and service quality.
