CaixaBank is a financial group with a socially responsible universal banking model with a long-term vision based on quality, proximity and specialisation that offers a value proposition of products and services adapted for each segment, taking innovation as a strategic challenge and a distinguishing feature of its culture. Moreover, its leading positioning in retail banking in Spain and Portugal affords it a key role in contributing to sustainable economic growth.

With Jordi Gual as chairman and Gonzalo Gortázar as CEO, the group has a network of 4,916 offices and 15.6 million customers, 6.3 million of which perform their operations electronically.

The group committed to Big Data technologies in its previous strategic plan and continues to do so in the new 2019-2021 plan, where it is engaged in ambitiously accelerating the digital transformation to give our customers a greater focus and adapt to their new behaviors.
