Banco de Corrientes: Best Commercial Bank Argentina 2017

When the going gets tough, well yes, the tough get going. A cliché, perhaps, but such it is with Banco de Corrientes in Argentina – a full-service commercial bank that not just managed to weather successive storms, but grow and prosper at the same time. Today Argentina’s top bank in number of clients and with a branch network that spans the country, Banco de Corrientes has established an unparalleled reputation for operational excellence and customer service.

Founded in 1950 as the main bank for Corrientes Province, sandwiched between Brazil and Paraguay, Banco de Corrientes soon expanded its geographical footprint to become one of Argentina’s leading commercial banks. From its earliest days, Banco de Corrientes – BanCo for short – has put considerable effort into furthering financial inclusion. It continues to do so with mobile offices that allow the bank to reach clients in isolated rural settlements.

BanCo maintains a number of initiatives to help small and medium-sized enterprises prosper. Offering credit lines for working capital and underwriting corporate expansion has transformed the bank into a driver of growth. True to the agricultural roots of its home province, the bank is particularly prominent in supporting farmers and ranchers throughout the country with products and services tailored to the needs of the sector.

The judging panel notes the bank’s remarkable growth trajectory and recognises its solid fundamentals. The judges are pleased to declare Banco de Corrientes winner of the 2017 Best Commercial Bank Argentina Award.
