History

Despite being one of the most important banks in the world by market capitalization, it was founded just in 1964 under the name of People’s Construction Bank of China. It was created to support and finance funds in construction activities in the country.

First, it was under the command of the Ministry of Finance of the People’s Republic of China and later, of the State Council. Gradually, it was implementing new commercial banking activities through the establishment of branches in the country and also abroad. In the 1990s, it became an institution capable of offering all kinds of banking services.

In 1996, the name was changed to China Construction Bank (as today). From 2002 to 2005, the presidents that the banking entity had were removed from office due to alleged fraud. That same year, Bank of America invested in the China Construction Bank.
