The Banco Sabadell’s Archive (AHBS) was set up in the year 2005 to preserve, manage and disseminate the documentary heritage of the bank since its origins. The archive, property of Banco Sabadell, contains the historical records not only of Banco Sabadell, but also of many of the banks wich have been acquired by Banco Sabadell and uts predecessor companies. The Banco Sabadell Foundation is responsible for the technical and operational aspects of managing.
