About Bank of the Philippine Islands

Bank of the Philippine Islands, known as BPI, is the oldest currently operating bank in the Philippines and its most profitable. It is owned by the Ayala Corporation, the largest conglomerate in the Philippines.

BPI was founded in 1851, as El Banco Español Filipino de Isabel II, and was the second bank founded during the Philippines’ Spanish era. The decree that established the bank also allowed it to print Philippine currency, the first time the Philippine peso was printed in the country.

BPI is divided into some 14 subsidiaries and affiliates, with several others that are currently inactive. The bank is well known for pioneering rural banking services in the country, and still maintains a significant network of rural branches dating back to colonial eras.

BPI is headquartered in Makati.
