Top 10 largest banks in the world

Money is not everything, but it is an important part of modern life. And the typical source of money is the bank. Banks today are more than just a place to keep your savings. The largest banks in the world are also often among the largest and most important investors in the global economy. Most companies, regardless of size, need a loan or credit at some point, and the banks themselves are still the primary address for that.


Between everyday commercial banking and large, global investment banks, banks have evolved into large corporations. They employ millions of people and banking jobs remain among the most sought-after.

The biggest banks in the world also belong to the biggest companies in the world (although not in the current Top 10). In fact, they have grown so large that many simply cannot get through without bringing the entire economy with them. This is how banks are connected to our economy today. This is especially true for the Top 10 largest banks in the world. The following ranking shows which of the thousands of banks worldwide currently belong to the largest banks globally.

Hint: 8 out of 10 banks are from just two countries.
