Our achievements

Imagen de nuestra evolución

New York Stock Exchange

This achievement from 25 years ago has been the aspiration of several companies, and is maintained through the effort we make every year as an organization to demonstrate our solidity and transparency.

We were the first Colombian company to reach the most important market in the world and the first to raise this much capital.

After the inaugural placement, Bancolombia has issued preferred shares in the market for an amount of USD $2,721 million in three transactions.

National and International Operation

The Bancolombia Group has executed a strategy that has paved a way to create a platform for growth that is evidenced in:

  • The creation of a Universal Banking model.
  • Local and international acquisitions to expand its operations.
  • Access to the world's main capital markets.
  • The creation of a network with wide coverage.
  • Building one of the most valuable and reputable brands in Colombia.

We've evolved to be an everyday bank, orchestrating digital and physical interactions to offer comprehensive and personalized solutions to our customers, always seeking their economic development and well-being.

This is how we move forward in the fulfillment of our higher purpose: to promote sustainable economic development to achieve the well-being of ALL.

Financial Education

We believe that people and businesses in Colombia, Panama, Guatemala and El Salvador, countries where we are present, can have a better quality of life by having the necessary tools to make informed and conscious financial decisions and thus materialize their dreams.

Understanding that all people have different needs, we develop educational initiatives aligned with each moment of life.

Taking into account that habits learned in childhood  can stick around throughout life, we developed Banconautas, a web series aimed at children of various ages to explain the importance of the good management of money.

In Colombia, in order to get closer to communities in urban and rural areas, we have had a School Bus that has been traveling around the country for more than 10 years.
