Rabobank Spain is a top wholesale bank in the Spanish food and agribusiness (F&A) market. Its strategy is centered on the customer, and on providing consistently high value in our products and services.
Two mutually reinforcing elements in this strategy are:
- our continuing cultivation of knowledge and expertise in our target sectors and
- our commitment to developing a long-term banker-client relationship.
Knowledge of our clients' markets, and a keen awareness of the associated risks and opportunities, means we can deliver unique and often tailor-made solutions for our clients' particular needs. And our emphasis on the relationship aspects of banking means that we operate with our customers' long-term goals uppermost in mind.
Rabobank Spain has developed into a recognised player in the highly specialised F&A field. It has a solid presence and broad customer base in such sectors as commercial trading, wine and other beverages, sugar, food retailing, and olive oil -- all key components of the Spanish F&A scene. By matching its own knowledge with the expertise available throughout Rabobank's broad global network, it can offer a full spectrum of products and services that directly support a client's requirements in corporate banking, corporate finance, and investment banking. Moreover, as an integral part of Rabobank International network, Rabobank Spain serves our group's domestic clients and member banks through a dedicated Dutch Desk, while retail services are organised through our strategic alliance partners in Spain.
At the outset of its Spanish presence, Rabobank served its clients through a strategic alliance with Banco Popular Español. Then, in 1993, after a four-year orientation, it reinforced its presence by taking a 50 % stake in the wholesale bank Popular Rabobank S.A., also specialised in F&A. Since the start of 1998, this joint venture was transferred into a full branch of Rabobank International. Operating out of Madrid, Rabobank Spain today offers a dedicated team of knowledgeable professionals in such diverse fields as syndication, initial public offerings (IPO's), structured finance, and mergers and acquisition (M&A) in every F&A sector.
