Difference between Coppel and BanCoppel

Coppel is one of the most popular and fastest growing companies in Mexico. In these stores you can find everything from clothing and shoes to furniture and appliances. Coppel is characterized by offering payment facilities: they offer their products in small monthly installments (or weekly/fortnightly payments) for very long periods of time and with few requirements. This way of operating has earned them a lot of clientele and popularity, especially among the less favored classes. However, few people realize the very high interests that are included in the “affordable” payments.

As mentioned at the beginning, Coppel is constantly growing, incorporating new subsidiaries or adding services. Today its services are divided into two: commercial and financial. Over time, its financial services became its strong point thanks to the creation of BanCoppel. Currently, BanCoppel is an economic entity as important as any other Mexican bank. Its shares on the BMV tend to rise. The projections have shown data where growth continues to be a constant for these two companies.
