Banco Popular closed 2020 with assets of more than US$9.7 billion, 16.5% more than the previous year, quite a feat in a year marked by the crisis that triggered the Covid pandemic. In addition, its loan portfolio grew 8% and total deposits 14.4%. With this, the crown jewel of Grupo Popular consolidated its position as one of the financial dynamos that moves the Dominican Republic. Christopher Paniagua has been at the forefront of the efforts to excel in this institution, which is about to celebrate 60 years of operations after it was founded by Alejandro Grullón in the 1960s.
