Bankinter, S.A., (Spanish pronunciation: ), formerly known as Banco Intercontinental Español, is a Spanish commercial bank. Bankinter was in 2007 the sixth-largest listed banking group in Spain.[2]

The biggest individual shareholder in the company is Crédit Agricole, which acquired around 20% in late 2007.[3] The Bank of Spain subsequently gave authorisation for CA to increase its stake to just below 30%,[4] but such a move has not yet been announced.


Banco Santander and Bank of America founded BankInter in 1965 as a joint venture, though neither is currently an owner. In 1972 it became fully independent of its founders and floated on the Madrid Stock Exchange, where its shares became one of the components of the IBEX 35.
