January - September 2012


  • The Dinero Móvil BBVA Bancomer plan launched in September 2012 will boost access to banking for new users, and thus contribute to increase financial inclusion and the level of banking penetration in the country. The innovation introduced by the service is the ability to send money to any part of Mexico via the Internet, ATMs or cell phones. The recipient of the deposit receives a message with a password giving access to the cash through ATMs in the BBVA Bancomer network, without the need for a debit card or a bank account.
  • In July 2012, BBVA Bancomer successfully issued 10-year additional capital notes for USD 1 billion on the international markets. The issue was 3.5 times oversubscribed, thus demonstrating the high level of investor confidence in the bank and in the country. In September 2012 the issue was renewed for another USD 500m, also on the international markets. On this occasion the issue was 3 times oversubscribed, once more confirming the confidence of investors in the growth prospects and positive performance of the BBVA franchise and the country overall.
  • The Mexican Center for Philanthropy (Cemefi), Alliance for Social Responsibility in Mexico (AliaRSE) and Forum Empresa have granted BBVA Bancomer the “Best Corporate Social Responsibility Practice” award in the “Community engagement” category for the mutual fund B+Educa, the first of its kind created by Mexico to support the Por los que se quedan (For those left behind) social integration scholarship program.
  • Finally, the Group’s business with SMEs in Mexico has been very intense, and led to it receiving the “SME 2012” award as the bank granting most loans to SMEs and entrepreneurs. New solutions and value-added services have been launched for this segment with the aim of increasing their business efficiency and competitiveness.
