As it celebrates its 70th anniversary this year, the Bank remains focused on customer-centricity, investing in people, technology, and risk management. It has partnered with global companies like Amazon Web Services and Oracle to fast-track digitalisation of its processes. It has also enhanced its digital and mobile app capabilities for seamless BetterBanking for its retail, wholesale and MSME customers—while continuing to support advocacies in education, through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arm Security Bank Foundation Inc. (SBFI), health and wellness, livelihood, and other community-building projects.
“We focused our advocacy on education because we believe that education is the greatest equaliser in life, for it will give every person the opportunity to succeed no matter what his or her social and economic background may be,” said SBFI Chairman Rafael F.Simpao, Jr.
Build a School, Build a Nation: The Classrooms Project

Even during the pandemic, SBFI continues to build additional school buildings and has already put up over 560 classrooms in over 55 cities.
