Top 1000 World Banks

Trusted since 1970
More important than ever in 2020

The Top 1000 World Banks ranking has been the industry’s trusted measure of bank size for 50 years. Our annual analysis of the challenges and opportunities facing the industry, at a global, regional and country level, has become essential reading for banks, consultants, corporates, vendors, regulators and investors.

Best-performing Banks ranking NEW 

Our 2020 ranking coincides with the most challenging operating environment banks have faced in living memory and features our all-new Best-performing Banks ranking. 

This timely addition uses a newly developed model to compare leading G20 banks across eight key performance categories. It will highlight the banks’ relative strengths and weaknesses going into the crisis and indicate which are likely to emerge in better shape. The results will help you make strategic decisions, identify opportunities and analyse risk.  

The model refers to 30 key ratios to score and rank banks, country by country, on their performance in the following eight categories:

Growth Operational
on risk
Profitability Asset quality Liquidity Leverage

Each bank's performance across these categories is then used to generate an overall "Best-performing Bank" score and ranking.
