Many of us are familiar with Bank of America as a company, and probably even use their services daily. The Bank of America name that we’re all familiar with first appeared in 1923 with Bank of America, Los Angeles. Bank of Italy of San Francisco acquired it in 1928, and it then took the Bank of America name two years later. This means that it’s celebrating over 100 years of being in operation, and that’s something of which we can all be proud.
Bank of America’s Achievements
Throughout its long journey, Bank of America has achieved many different accolades. It didn’t happen overnight, though. The bank’s history stretches back to Bank of Italy, founded by Amadeo Pietro Giannini in 1904. It provided services to Italian immigrants who faced service discrimination in various banking options. By way of giving others a chance to work and make money, he was able to start something truly bigger than he likely ever thought possible.
As of August 2018, Bank of America has a $313.5 billion market capitalization, making it the 13th largest company in the world and the sixth-largest American public company. It raked in $102.98 billion in sales as of June 2018. It was ranked 24th on the 2018 Fortune 500 rankings of the largest United States corporations by total revenue. Euromoney Institutional Investor named it “World’s Best Bank” in their 2018 Awards for Excellence.

Congratulations, Bank of America!
