Promoter of Scientific, Social and Cultural Development


The professional expertise and operating structure of the Bank has enabled it to support simultaneously the scientific, social and cultural development of the country through the creation of foundations designed to select, finance and otherwise stimulate research in the fields of sciences, technology, anthropology, archaeology, education, health and humanities. Moreover, the Bank has participated in efforts to rescue and preserve cultural heritage as well as in efforts to stimulate continued development through the creation and administration of libraries and specialised museums throughout the country. The Gold Museum (Museo de Oro) and the Luis Angel Arango Library, part of the Bank, are nationally and internationally recognised for the work they carry out.
