Established on July 22, 1964, Rural Bank of Guinobatan, Inc. (RBGI) has been taking the lead in local banking on Albay and Sorsogon City. RBGI has proven its capability to meet its client’s financial needs.
Year 2000 is a milestone, when RBGI started upgrading its capabilities to a computerized system. These innovations continue to this day when new bank operating systems were put into place.
In line with this, a new Bank logo has replaced the original, along with the inauguration of the newly built Corporate Center last November 5, 2009. This marked the shift from the first generation banking to the new management systems being put into place. This transition is symbolized by the turning of the pages, in colors green and blue, set against the original silhouette of Mt. Mayon, representing the long term stability.
