ABOUT UNICAJA BANCO
Unicaja Banco is a Spanish financial institution with a proven trajectory of solvency and financial solidity.
The bank takes on the historic mantle from a wide range of savings banks from different geographic areas of Spain, some centuries old, and all with a long trajectory as lending institutions with a marked social character.
Unicaja Banco was established on 1 December 2011, by the savings bank Unicaja, by means of the segregation to the Bank of its financial business. On 31 October 2014, the General Meeting of Unicaja approved the transformation of this savings bank into a banking foundation, pursuant to the Savings Banks and Banking Foundations Law.
On 30 June 2017, Unicaja Banco became a listed company, its shares being admitted to official listing on the Stock Markets of Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao and Valencia, and included in the Stock Exchange Interconnection System (S.I.B.E. or Continuous Market). The banking foundation Fundación Bancaria Unicaja is its main shareholder with a stake of 50.81% in the capital.
Furthermore, the merger of Banco de Caja España de inversiones,
Salamanca y Soria, S.A. (EspañaDuero) into Unicaja Banco was completed
in September 2018 as a result of a merger by absorption process.
