Banco Santander is committed to growth in Mexico – Emilio Botín

  1. 1. Press Release Banco Santander is committed to growth in Mexico – Emilio Botín • “The group maintains its investment plan and is open to new opportunities,” Botín said in a meeting with President Peña Nieto. • The acquisition of ING’s Mexican mortgage business will turn Santander Mexico into the number two bank by market share in this segment. Mexico City, November 26, 2013 – The Chairman of Banco Santander, Emilio Botín, confirmed the group’s commitment to growth in Mexico and expressed his confidence in the country’s economy. He said the bank aims to expand in Mexico and increase its investment. In a meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, Botín emphasized how important it was for Banco Santander “to contribute to the country attaining its objectives by providing competitive financing, quality banking products and, above all, new investments that reaffirm our firm commitment to Mexico”. Santander’s chairman added: “We are going to keep growing with the country. We have committed ourselves to increasing our infrastructure and we are achieving this, with the aim of helping our customers and providing for their needs. We now have 51 new branches up and running, out of the 200 we plan for the next two years. We are accelerating the rate of openings and will inaugurate another 40 by the end of the year. This is the most ambitious plan we have carried out in recent years and it has created 1,100 jobs so far.” Botín, who chaired the first board meeting that the group has held in Mexico, said the bank was obtaining very positive results there, with double-digit growth in strategic businesses. He noted that Santander Mexico is the leader in financing for SMEs, with year-on-year growth of 29% in this segment in the third quarter. With the inclusion of ING’s mortgage business, Santander will consolidate its number two position in this market. “We are growing organically, but we are also making determined, long-term investments and we are open to new opportunities. We are confident that the reforms the government is undertaking will provide a favourable framework for the development that Mexico needs and will consolidate the country’s growth,” he said.
