Domingo Armengol Calvo (Barbastro, October, 25th, 1965) is BBVA’s Corporate Secretary and Secretary of the Board of Directors since 2009. Lawyer with more than 25 years of experience as Secretary of the Board of Directors and legal counsel for several companies in various sectors including Airlines, Food, Real Estate, Banking and Finance, he is also Secretary of the Board of non-profit organizations as BBVA’s Foundation.

After the recent ratings upgrades announced by S&P, and DBRS, rating agency Moody’s has changed the outlook on its long-term rating for BBVA (Baa1) to positive from stable. In its press release, Moody’s said it favorably views the bank’s capacity to issue bail-in-able debt in order to meet MREL requirements.

Ten years after the crisis broke, has financial stability improved? In the opinion of  Ricardo Gómez Barredo, Head of Accounting & Supervisors at BBVA, “clearly, we have come a long way,” but adds “regulation will have to continue to adapt itself to the new demands to ensure a level playing field for everyone”.
