PNB Celebrates 100 years

By Wowie Reyes

The Philippine National Bank was established as a government-owned banking institution on July 22, 1916 with headquarters in the old Masonic Temple along Escolta, Manila. Its primary mandate was to provide financial services to Philippine industry and agriculture and support the government's economic development effort.

PNB MAASIN BRANCH: Bank Manager Serrando Estrada, Anna Daphni A. Dolauta, Michelle M. Rodas, Jocelyn Piñon, Honeylette M. Jualo, Olgaditas Liempiado and Pacita L. Verano.

With PNB's establishment, Filipinos found a bank of their own.In 1917, PNB marked its entry in the field of international banking when it opened its New York Branch. Then PNB transferred to its new Head Office along Escolta in 1966 and launched the first on-line Electronic Data Processing System in the entire Far East.

In 1980, PNB became the first universal bank in the country. The privatization of the Bank started when 30 per cent of its outstanding stocks was offered to the public and its stocks were listed in the stock exchange in 1989. And in 1996, the Bank's status changed from a government-based to a private corporation with the control of the government reduced to 46 per cent. Then PNB later became completely privatized.

PNB-Maasin Branch’s officers and clients attended Holy Mass in celebration of the bank’s 100 years of service to the public.

In 1995, the Bank moved to its new headquarters at the PNB Financial Center in Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City. The Bank remains as one of the largest banks in the country.

PNB maintains its leadership in the overseas remittance business with remittance centers in the United States, Canada, London, France, Italy, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and the Middle East countries.
