The 16 Strongest Banks In The World

Jamie Dimon

[credit provider=”AP”]

The world’s banking strength is shifting from the west to the east, and that’s been confirmed by Bloomberg’s most recent rankings.The biggest winner this year is Singapore, which holds three of the top 10 spots on the list. Only one American bank makes the top 10, and it’s not one of the country’s big four firms. Further, Canada’s banks also make a big rally, with two in the top 5.

We’ve highlighted the top 16 firms, their headquarter locations, and who’s in charge.

Bloomberg calculates their rankings utilising a composite score, based on the ratios of Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets, non-performing assets to total assets, loan loss reserves to non-performing assets, deposits to funding, and costs to revenue.
