Latin America's best bank for SMEs 2020: Santander

Awards for Excellence 2020

Santander is Latin America’s best bank for small and medium-sized enterprises. Many banks have SME offerings but few, if any, use the segment so effectively as one of the fundamental drivers of its growth.

The bank has targeted products at these businesses to build retail presence in its Latin American markets. In Brazil, for example, the effort to offer owners of SMEs combined company and retail accounts is branded Duo.

Santander’s long-standing focus on these companies has also paid off in the corporate sector when successful companies outgrow the biggest SME classification.

Sergio Rial, as head of the south America region for Santander, leads the SME business for the bank in Latin America.
