Throughout Bank of America’s history, we have held one purpose — to help everyone we work with realize their dreams. In fulfilling this purpose, a constant theme in our work has been "opportunity." We create opportunities for customers to buy a home, to attend college, or to retire with security. We create opportunities for businesses to grow. We create opportunities for all of us to build stronger communities in which to live and work. We also create opportunities for our associates to fulfill their personal and professional potential.
In pursuing these opportunities, we are fulfilling our vision for Bank of America. We strive to offer the most convenient banking network for our retail customers coast-to-coast; build our global capital markets platform to better serve our corporate clients; leverage information and market knowledge to innovate for customers and clients; integrate our operations and businesses to create value for customers and shareholders; and deliver the highest standard of service quality to consumers, businesses and institutions of all sizes.
