Madrid, July 11, 2014. Euromoney has named Santander Best Bank in Western Europe and Spain. The magazine believes Santander is “unique” in having a credit rating higher than its domestic sovereign. It highlighted the bank’s geographic diversification and its “network of separately-capitalised subsidiaries, several publicly quoted on stock markets outside Spain”. The prestigious magazine also recognized the bank’s large retail banking and consumer financing businesses in Europe that produce a large share of group earnings. Santander won awards in five of its main markets. As well as Spain, it was named Best Bank in Portugal, Mexico, Argentina and Puerto Rico. Euromoney highlighted the successful merger of Santander, Banesto and Banif in Spain in 2013 and noted it was being completed ahead of schedule and had achieved market share gains in customer funds and deposits, while cutting the cost of time deposits by 170 basis points. In Portugal, it said: “Santander Totta continues to tower above the other Portuguese banks. As well as being the only bank in the country that needed no state aid during the crisis, Santander Totta is the best-rated bank in Portugal.” Euromoney also stressed Santander’s growth in Mexico, where it expanded its portfolio by 12.6% and increased net earnings by 17.1%, and the fact that it enjoys the best efficiency rate in the country. In Argentina, it noted Santander Rio maintained its market leading position in loans and deposits from the private sector. In Puerto Rico, it noted that, despite the difficult operating environment, Santander grew its attributable profit by 40%.
