Banco Atlantico

A brief look at the historic records of Spain’s Banco Atlantico, presently headquartered in the province of Catalonia, reveals several milestones. In 1901, after Cuba gained independents from Spain, bankers Francisco and José Nonell Feliu moved the business to the city of Barcelona. Together with local businessmen, they founded a bank Nonell, Rovira y Matas. Since its establishment, the bank’s name changed several times until in 1946, the body was acquired by the Count of Ruiseñada Claudio Güell y Churruca who renamed the structure Banco Atlantico. The bank went on private hands for the first time in 1984, when the consortium of Arab Banking Corporation, BBVA, and Alianz acquired Banco Atlantico from the Spanish government. In 2003, the bank ceased its independent existence and became a part of Banco Sabadell (BS) Group.

To its individual clients, the devoted team of Atlantico is pleased to offer the full range of everyday and personal banking solutions including savings and current accounts, bank cards, online banking, consumer and mortgage loans, deposits, and pension plans. The banks special products include BS Junior, a commission-free demand savings account for children aged 0-14, BS Click OK, a special bank card for teenagers, and BS Senior - a package of financial services with discount available for clients of the bank over 55 years of age. Some of the services included in BS Senior are: a BS bank card, an internet banking service, an option for direct payment of utility bills, and direct debit of retirement payment. The young clients of BS who want to buy a home can rely on a promotional mortgage plan, including an extended payment term of up to forty years, financing of up to eighty percent of the value of the property and a free home insurance with the bank.
