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.
