    There are three Banco Populars of which I am aware. One in Mexico, one in Puerto Rico and one in Equador. I have a vague recollection of reading on the financial pages that Banco Popular de Puerto Rico wanted to establish a continental U.S. presence and planned to do this via credit cards, personal loans and on-line banking. I think they were planning on targeting areas with large Latino populations.

    Several year ago (perhaps even 20) there was a bank by this name in the NY Metro area. I don't know if it's the same one or it had gotten sucked up by some big mega-bank like Citibank, Chase, or Bankers Trust.

    There is actually one of their branches in the Houston Area, off of Hwy 59 and Gessner Road. I used to live near there, I just moved from that area 3 months ago and it was still there last time I was in Houston. So they do have US offices.

    Well, I live in Puerto Rico and we have a locally-owned Banco Popular (don't know about other countries), it is a very well known bank down here (one of the biggest), based here and now expanding into major hispanic markets in the mainland. For what I have dealt with them, they are very professional and helpful, just that their interests rates are quite high. On a side note, you can visit their web page (

    It is still there. It has not been acquired. It is based in Puerto Rico.
