BBVA expansion strategy
With a long-term strategy focused on growth, BBVA has been actively seeking sales and acquisitions to strengthen its position in key markets.
BBVA’s global presence spans several countries, including Mexico (as I’m sure you already know), the United States, Turkey, Colombia, Argentina, Peru and Chile. In addition to Spain, of course, where it is based in Bilbao.
The bank’s focus on these markets is driven by their strong economic growth and changing demographics, such as a rising middle class and increasing digital adoption (although in Argentina the trend is reversed, by the way).
As of 2021, BBVA’s international operations represented approximately 50 percent of the bank’s total revenues and profits.
Mexico is BBVA’s largest market outside of Spain, where it has historically made a third of profits.
BBVA has been operating in Mexico since 1991 and has established itself as one of the leading banks in the country.
The United States is another important market for BBVA, where it has a significant presence in the southern states.
In that country, BBVA’s operations represented approximately 10 percent of the bank’s profits in 2021.
