Bankinter: una historia de 55 años, cinco de ellos escritos en portugués

La historia de Bankinter comienza en plena Guerra Fría, en un momento en el que la necesidad de crear alianzas sólidas entre las dos orillas del Atlántico se sentía más que nunca debido al convulso contexto geopolítico. El 4 de Junio de 1965, dos importantes entidades financieras decidieron conjuntamente crear el Banco Intercontinental de España que, poco después, pasó a denominarse Bankinter. Estas dos instituciones fueron el Santander y el Bank of America. De las entidades financieras fundadas en España en aquel remoto año de 1965, solo Bankinter ha sobrevivido hasta ahora. Para Alberto Ramos, Country Manager de Bankinter Portugal, esta longevidad se explica en gran medida “por el enfoque permanente y la proximidad a los clientes, por la comodidad de los canales disponibles, por la solidez financiera y por la oferta de soluciones integrales e innovadoras”, características que, después de más de medio siglo, siguen formando parte del ADN del banco.
