Banco Sabadell SA Institucion De Banca Multiple acquired a 49.27% stake in multipurpose financial company Sabcapital SA De CV Sofom E.R. in a bid to better unify the two Mexico-based businesses.

In December 2018, S&P Global Ratings upgraded both Sabadell Mexico and Sabcapital's ratings to "mxA+" from "mxA-" in light of the bank's efforts to diversify its business. The rating agency noted that Sabadell Mexico completed a restructuring in that month.
