Banco Santander has been named “Global Bank of the Year” by The Banker magazine in recognition of its “fantastic profit growth in Latin America and its Brazilian operations in particular, its innovative use of technology to provide customers with products better suited to their needs” and the acquisition of Banco Popular, which reinforces its leading position in Spain.

At its annual banking awards ceremony in London, The Banker also named Santander Bank of the Year in the Americas and in four of its nine main countries:  Spain, Brazil, Chile and Portugal.

This is the first time a Spanish Bank has won the global award since Santander last won the award in 2009, and it is the first time ever that Santander has been named Bank of the Year in Brazil by The Banker. Over the past decade, Santander Totta has won The Banker’s top prize nine times and Santander Spain, five.

Banco Santander will become an official sponsor of the UEFA Champions League. The agreement begins next season (2018/19) and runs for three years to 2020/21. The UEFA Champions League is the world’s most prestigious football club competition, with mass audiences in Santander’s main markets in Europe and the Americas. The UEFA Champions League final is also the most viewed annual sporting event, watched live by more than 160 million people. The competition has more than 100 million followers in social media.
