Our purpose is clear. We are here to make the financial lives of those who do business with us better. Better by listening to our customers and clients, and connecting them to the financial solutions they need. And, better by connecting across our company to deliver those solutions.

Over the past three years, we’ve strengthened our foundation and now have record level capital and liquidity. We’ve put behind us many of the issues that arose as a result of the economic downturn and were obscuring the promise and potential of our company. And, we’ve narrowed our focus to concentrate on the businesses and services that matter most to the three customer groups we serve – people, companies and institutional investors.  

With the capabilities we have in place, we can do more than any other company to help our customers and clients realize their financial goals. For people, we deliver products and services in a targeted way that takes into account each customer’s relationship and preferences – whether you are a checking account holder, small business owner or new home buyer. For companies, we support the financing and advisory needs of commercial and investment clients across the world. For institutional investors, we provide sales and trading capabilities and research expertise to clients in more than 100 countries. And, through our philanthropy and volunteerism, Bank of America is donating resources, time and energy to support the communities where we live and work.


Highly decorated retired astronaut, Captain Mark Kelly continues to secure his place in history, partnering with his identical twin brother, Scott from the ground in a historic yearlong expedition and unprecedented NASA study on how space affects the human body. As the Space and Aviation Contributor for NBC News and MSNBC, he has provided the world with insider perspective and intimate coverage of the groundbreaking yearlong experiment.  

Already an experienced aviator and retired US Navy Captain, Kelly began his career as an astronaut in 1996. During his illustrious career with NASA, he spent more than 50 days in space and commanded both the Space Shuttle Endeavour, including its final flight in May 2011, and Space Shuttle Discovery, and is one of only two individuals who have visited the International Space Station on four different occasions.

Kelly is also a #1 New York Times best-selling author and a founder of World View Enterprises, a company pioneering a new frontier at the edge of space.

In January 2011, Kelly became the center of international attention after the assassination attempt on his wife, former US Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Their story captivated the nation and resulted in the couple becoming an unequivocal symbol of strength and perseverance.

An American hero who exemplifies effective leadership and courage under pressure, Kelly offers audiences insights drawn from his various and extensive experiences, from leading teams in some of the most dynamic environments imaginable, to the thrill of spaceflight and making history, to the importance of commitment to career and family, in order to truly define and achieve success.
