As a matter of fact the subject chosen by Davos in 2016 coincides with the Chairman of BBVA’s vision. “The scope of this revolution will be huge,” he noted.

The Chairman of BBVA places banking as “the next on the list” to be revolutionized by technology, after the transformation experienced by other sectors, as highlighted today on CNBC (pictured).

Francisco González anticipates the establishment of a “new league of competitors” formed by banks such as BBVA, some startups and the big Internet players. “In five years, a new banking ecosystem will emerge, which will operate in a completely different world, based on extreme transparency, where customers will be the winners”, he said. In this regard, he stated that “BBVA will be in the midst of that ecosystem, giving our customers the best services.”
