Who Is Pan American Bank?

Pan American Bank was established in East Los Angeles in 1964. When the Bank was originally established it was named Pan American National Bank. Later, the Bank converted from a national banking charter to a state banking charter, dropping the "national" from its name.

Pan American Bank was created by its founders specifically to serve the needs of Latinos in Los Angeles. While several people were involved in the founding of the Bank, the majority shareholder and driving force behind the Bank was former U.S. Treasurer Romana Acosta Banuelos.

A couple weeks ago the Bank celebrated its 45 year anniversary. The Bank has stayed true to its mission of serving the Latino community. In the early 1970's the Bank expanded into Santa Ana with the same mission. The Bank today has three offices, two in East Los Angeles and one in Santa Ana.
