BBVA Brunant is a Brunanter bank and financial services company with its origins in De Grijzestad Bank. It is the Brunanter branch of the Spanish multinational banking group Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA).
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.
BBVA Brunant sponsors several sports clubs, including football club Dortmund SFC.
