193 YEARS ON YOUR SIDEBeing on your side is a way of thinking and performing.
Now, more than ever, we are on your side at every moment, in every place.
We are a bank on the move.
On September 6, 1822, we settled as the first bank in Spanish America and printed the first Argentine bank note. Nowadays, we are proud to be a public bank that offers over $55 billion financing annually to foster the growth of families, SMEs, micro entrepreneurs and municipalities.
In 1856, we granted the first mortgage loan in the country. In 2015, we continue making the housing dream of thousands of families come true every year.
In 1941, we launched the first loan facility especially designed for the agricultural sector. In 2014, lending and financial assistance to companies grew by 40%. Total loans granted to producers of the Province of Buenos Aires surpassed $13.7 billion, 51% over 2013 figures. We are determined to keep on this trend.
In 1863, the first 3 Bank’s branches were opened. Today, there are more than 420 branches and in 2013 we have started a remodeling plan that is 50% completed. By the end of 2015, 100 branches are expected to be fully remodeled so as to make them more comfortable and functional.
In 1969, we incorporated information technology into our banking activities and, in 1989 we began to operate the first ATM network that today has almost 1,650 units, the largest one in the country.
Since 2013, we have implemented state-of-the-art technology and consolidated Banca Internet Provincia (BIP), our recently developed home banking platform, so that transactions may be carried out 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The Bank has already more than 700,000 BIP users and over 33,000 BIP Móvil users.
Banco Provincia’s IT systems, security controls and the processes carried out by the Corporate Communication Unit have been awarded IRAM ISO-9001.2008 certification.
In 2014, we came closer to people by new communication channels such as Twitter and Facebook and also consolidated our “Buenos Aires de Mujer” program.
We finance value chains, the settlement of entrepreneurs in industrial parks, and foreign trade. We offer the best investment options for your savings and the best benefits for your credit cards.
Every new year, we reassert our loyalty to the foundational spirit.
With faith and hope in the Province and in Argentina, we celebrate 193 years on your side.
