Banco Sabadell, the fourth Spanish private banking group

With over 130 years’ history, Banco Sabadell is today the fourth private banking group listed on the IBEX -35 and one of the best capitalised financial institutions in the Spanish financial sector. 

The financial group it heads includes subsidiaries and investee companies, banks and networks with business brands that offer differentiated value propositions, focused on diversification by territory and business under the common denominator of professionalism and excellent service.

Being equipped with the latest technological and business resources, combined with a multi-channel organisation focussed on the client and their needs, enables Banco Sabadell to be a national benchmark in the personal and corporate banking market and an excellent representative of Spain in a further nineteen countries.


HistoryBanco Sabadell was founded on 31 December 1881 by a group of businessmen and merchants of the city of Sabadell (Barcelona) with the aim of financing the local textile industry and supply the necessary raw materials under favourable conditions. In 1907, the bank wound up its non-banking businesses and engaged solely in commercial banking.  

Its territorial expansion in Spain started in 1965, first in its immediate environment and subsequently other provinces and communities. In 1978, it commenced its international expansion with the opening of a branch in London.

In Spain, the bank pioneered the computerisation of its administrative processes and accounting management in 1968, and in 1986 introduced FonoBanc (telephone banking) and InfoBanc (computer banking) as new channels for communication with and services for the bank customer. Lastly, in 1998, Banco Sabadell launched the first Internet banking service: BancSabadellNet.

As from 1996 and down to the present day, Banco Sabadell has carried out a new phase of expansion with the acquisition and integration into the group of banks such as NatWest España, Herrero, Atlántico, Urquijo, Guipuzcoano, Banco CAM, Caixa Penedès, Lloyds TSB España, and Gallego in Spain and TransAtlantic Bank, Mellon United National Bank, Lydian Private Bank and JGB Bank in Miami (United States).
