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

By total assets[edit]

The list is based on the S&P Global Market Intelligence report 2018 of the 100 largest banks in the world.[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]
