Hard at Work in California

Bank of America began serving California nearly 140 years ago, starting with the Security Pacific Bank in Los Angeles and Bank of Italy in San Francisco. Bank of Italy was founded in San Francisco in 1904 by A.P. Giannini, who believed in the power of capital to change people’s lives for the better. After the 1906 earthquake, he famously loaned money on a handshake to anyone who promised to rebuild. Security Pacific Bank’s many contributions include helping secure locations for several major universities in southern California. Today, Bank of America provides services to half of all American households and lends billions of dollars to help spur economic growth.
