The Group's essence – and what sets it apart from others – is its level of implication and unswerving commitment to society. CaixaBank is committed to banking based on corporate values of quality, trust and social commitment.

CaixaBank has the largest customer base in Spain – 13.8 million people – and is the main bank for 1 in every 4 Spanish customers.

The bank has the most extensive network in Spain, with over 5,000 branches and nearly 9,500 ATMs, complemented by a mobile and online banking service of the highest quality.


Positioning

CaixaBank is focused on consolidating the Group's position as financial leaders in Spain and in being recognised for its social responsibility, the quality of service that it offers, the financial strength that has always characterised the bank and for its leading role in innovation.
CaixaBank seeks to consolidate its position as the epitome of a socially responsible and committed bank that is a point of reference in terms of good corporate governance.

With the recent takeovers of Banca Cívica and Banco de Valencia and the purchase of Barclays retail and business banking operations in Spain, CaixaBank has consolidated its position as the leader of the Spanish financial market.

”la Caixa” Banking Foundation: CaixaBank's reference shareholder

CaixaBank's origins go back to a banking and financial tradition that began in 1904 with the founding of the Caja de Pensiones para la Vejez y de Ahorros de Cataluña y Baleares, ”la Caixa”. It started by managing family savings and offering its customers pension insurance well before this type of social benefit was established.

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

Since then, the ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation directly manages the Welfare Projects which have traditionally characterised the Group. It also manages, through CriteriaCaixa, the Group's investment portfolio. Within this portfolio, CriteriaCaixa has a 40%1 stake in CaixaBank, as well as stakes in companies across diverse economic sectors that provide vital community services, namely Abertis (transportation and telecommunications infrastructure management), Gas Natural Fenosa (energy distribution), Suez Environnement (water and waste management) and Saba (car park and logistics park management).

”la Caixa” Banking Foundation is the largest foundation in Spain and one of the largest in Europe and indeed worldwide. The budget for 2017  in Welfare Projects is to be 510 million euros.
