​​As an FDIC-designated Minority Depository Institution (MDI), Popular Bank is a minority-led bank with a minority-driven mission.

Our Mission: To impact Latino and other underserved minority communities by offering broader access to essential financial solutions and services.

Our story is rooted in community.

Founded in Puerto Rico nearly 130 years ago as Banco Popular, or a “People’s Bank,” we made service to community the centerpiece of our financial mission and ethos. When we later opened our first U.S. mainland branch in 1961, in the Bronx, New York, financial inclusion remained imperative in our banking practices.

Today, through socially minded partnerships with financial empowerment organizations like Accion and Junior Achievement, as well as through our own Popular Foundation, we continue to initiate community investment and development and promote economic well-being for local and underserved communities.

“Anyone who needs our help should come to us without hesitation.” - Rafael Carrión Pacheco Former Chairman, Popular
