Euromoney has named Santander Best Bank in Western Europe, Spain, Chile and Uruguay. In assessing the awards, Euromoney highlighted the importance of the Group’s international diversification. Editor Clive Horwood said: “[Santander] is already one of the few big banks to prove that internationally diversified retail banks can be more profitable, and more stable, than domestic-focused peers. Now it is in its rightful place, not just Spain’s biggest bank, but also the one with the biggest domestic share, too.”


Banco Santander and the new digital platform we.trade today announced in Spain the first real-time trade transactions among companies using blockchain.

Santander Spain is already carrying out international trade transactions with several companies.

Both the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement on climate change have set ambitious targets to deliver a sustainable future. As two thirds of worldwide finance is provided by banks, the global banking system will be instrumental in achieving these goals. Ana Botin, Executive Chairman of Banco Santander, said: “Our purpose at Santander is to help people and businesses prosper – and, in large part, that means recognising the key role that banks have to play in supporting inclusive growth, which is the only way to achieve sustainable growth.
