Business area section[edit]

I've removed the following section from the article, as it appears both unsourced and badly outdated in light of bailout news. Khazar2 (talk) 19:06, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

I have had a look at the official website and it seems Bankia has some international presence in Germany, UK, Mexico, etc. See http://www.bankia.com/es/informacion-corporativa/quienes-somos --Youssef (talk) 14:40, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

Business Area[edit]

− − Bankia operates in the retail banking, corporate banking, corporate finance, capital markets, assets management and private banking, offering a wide range of financial products and services to its customers, both domestically and internationally.

− − The entity has an extensive branch network across Spain as well as a presence in Beijing, Dublin, Lisbon, London, Miami, Milan, Munich, Oporto, Paris, Shanghai, Warsaw and Vienna.

− − The Group has a large and diversified portfolio of business stockholdings with a value of €5,500 million as of January 31, 2011.

Nationalization[edit]

It is not true that Bankia is even partially nationalized. Not even the cited sourced claims that; WSJ can be quoted for 'partially nationalized', but the truth of the EU bank loans is, that the banks receive a huge bailout, and in return they must live up to a series a not-so-serious demands. Profits are NOT nationalized. I'm rephrasing the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bierlich (talkcontribs) 18:17, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

BFA (Banco Financiero y de Ahorros) owned 45% of Bankia. BFA were 100% nationalized. So 45% of Bankia is of the state. Now they need more money than expected so they receive a bailout. --Ermengol Patalín 09:53, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
