As covered earlier this year, BBVA announced in February that it had achieved a record number of new customers during 2020, despite the COVID-19 pandemic. BBVA reported that it added a total of 7.3 million new customers worldwide, of which 2.4 million became BBVA customers through the app or the web.
According to the banking group, this figure represents a 56% jump compared to 2019, and proof of the consolidation of digital capabilities as an increasingly relevant element to boost BBVA’s business.
Speaking about the customer milestone, David Puente, BBVA’s Global Head of Client Solutions, stated:
“Customer growth is one of BBVA’s strategic priorities and these figures validate the group’s efforts to create global programs to develop new digital functionalities aimed at contracting financial products and services.”
