Our Story


At Banco Popular, we are proud of our story, history and heritage of providing financial services to our communities for over one hundred years. Everything we do is connected to the founding vision and values that our early leaders established in 1893. Their compelling vision was born from a simple idea: to serve the working classes and the underserved. Since those humble beginnings, we have solidified that vision and grown into a strong financial institution, supporting its communities in Puerto Rico, the United States, the Caribbean and Latin America.

In 1961, when many Puerto Ricans migrated to the U.S mainland, Banco Popular decided to follow in their footsteps and support their dreams the dreams of home ownership, financial independence, and business entrepreneurship. From our first branch in the Bronx, New York, Banco Popular North America now operates in multiple states, with a broad network of branches and over 1600 employees, whom we call our 'DreamMakers'. We proudly serve a diverse group of over 500,000 business and individual customers and strive to Make Dreams Happen for our Customers, our People, and our Communities, with a commitment to delivering strong financial results to our shareholders.

At Banco Popular North America, our mission is to become the premier community bank in the markets we serve. For additional information about Banco Popular, our services and products, please click here.
