HistoryEdit

De Grijzestad Bank logo

De Grijzestad Bank was founded in 1826 by Pierre Mathers (of the Mathers family). Being a very financially stable institution, it has grown to become the largest bank on Hogeberg Island.

In 1959, 65% of ownership transferred to the Mathers Financial Group. De Grijzestad Bank, while being a financially secure bank, was facing increased competition from rival banks and was unable to successfully compete with them.

De Grijzestad Bank was in negotiations with the Spanish banking group Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA) over a takeover throughout 2013. An agreement was reached, where BBVA was able to buy 65% of the shares, with the rest remaining with the Mathers Group.

SponsorshipEdit

BBVA Brunant sponsors several sports clubs, including football club Dortmund SFC.
