List of largest banks

These are lists of the banks in the world, as measured by total assets[1].

By total assets[edit]

The ICBC building on the Bund, Shanghai

The list is based on the 2018 S&P Global Market Intelligence report of the 100 largest banks in the world.[1] The ranking was based upon assets as reported and was not adjusted for different accounting treatments.[1] Accounting treatment affects the assets reported: for example, the United States uses US GAAP (as opposed to IFRS), which only reports the net derivative position in most cases, leading to US banks having fewer derivative assets than comparable non-US banks.[2] If JPMorgan Chase reported under the IFRS, it would be ranked 4th in the list as of 2018, rather than 6th.[1]
