Philippines Business Bank, one of the biggest savings banks in Philippines today; started operations on February 12, 1997 as TOTAL SAVINGS BANK and obtained S.E.C. approval of its change in corporate name before the year was over. The Bank’s current name sets out clearly its thrust and future plans.
To keep itself close to the small and medium scale businesses which includes both small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and large companies which it seeks to serve, Philippine Business Bank operates from its office in Caloocan City, not in the plush of Makati or Ortigas business centers as favored by other banks.
Although considered as a newcomer in the banking community, PBB established 10 branches in its first year. By the end of its second year, it had 15 branches in Metro Manila and neighboring business centers. In the next years, PBB aims to branch out into the country's other business hubs. As of end 2009, Philippine Business Bank has a total of 55 Branches nationwide.
