Bilbao
Vizcaya and Argentaria in 1999, and is the second largest bank in Spain.[5] The company is a constituent of the IBEX 35 and Euro

Credit ratings[edit] As of March 2013[update] BBVA had the following debt ratings with the four major rating agencies:

Rating Agency Long Term Rating Short Term Rating

S&P[9] BBB- (Outlook: Stable) A-3

Moody’s[10] Baa2 (Outlook: Positive) P-3

Fitch[11] BBB+ (Outlook: Stable) F-2

DBRS[12] A (Outlook: Negative) R-1 (middle)

Mergers and acquisitions[edit] In February 2014, BBVA acquired Simple, a then four-year-old direct bank for 117 million. In its push towards a digital future BBVA has also acquired such companies as Madiva, a big-data company, Spring Studio, a digital-design specialist, digital banks in America and Finland, and 29.5% of Atom, a British online bank.[13] BBVA executive chairman, Francisco González, explained why banks must get with the technology program: "Some bankers and analysts think that Google, Facebook, Amazon or the like will not fully enter a highly regulated, low-margin business such as banking. I disagree. What is more, I think banks that are not prepared for such new competitors face certain death."[14] The banking industry recognizes BBVA to be more pro-technology than many of its competitors.[14] BBVA acquired Finnish online banking startup Holvi in 2014.[15]
