Barcelona (CNA).- Sabadell United Bank is the new trademark of Banc Sabadell in Florida’s financial district. Its most representative element is the Sabadell Financial Center building, built in 2000 and located in the heart of Brickell Avenue, Miami’s main avenue.
Banc Sabadell is the 2nd financial institution in Catalonia after La Caixa savings bank. It has an important business in the United States, and in particular in Florida.

The new Sabadell United Bank headquarters is a 30-storey building, with some 50,000 square metres. It is located on Brickell Avenue, named after the first settlers William and Mary Brickell. Large windows dominate the building’s design.

Fernando Pérez-Hickman, the U.S. director of Banc Sabadell, views the bank’s U.S. strategy to unveil its new Florida headquarters in one of the fastest growing financial centres in the U.S. as “transcendental”.
