Bloomberg: The World’s 10 Strongest Banks

To identify the strongest global banks, Bloomberg examined 78 banks around the world with assets in excess of $100 billion.

Any bank that failed the Federal Reserve’s most recent stress test was not considered for the list.

Banks were then heavily weighted on their Tier 1 capital ratios, which measure an organization’s capital relative to risk-assessed assets.

Other metrics examined included the banks’ balance of non-performing assets, deposits, funding, costs and revenues. Each metric accounted for a portion of the banks overall score. Banks were ranked based on their overall scores.

Here are the top 10 strongest banks in the world, according to Bloomberg:

  1. Overseas-Chinese Banking
  2. BOC Hong Kong Holdings (PNIK:BNKHF)
  3. Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (NYSE:CM)
  4. Toronto-Dominion Bank (NYSE:TD)
  5. National Bank of Canada (PINK:NTIOF)
  6. Royal Bank of Canada (NYSE:RY)
  7. United Overseas Bank (PINK:UOVEY)
  8. DBS Group Holdings (PINK:DBSDY)
  9. Hang Seng Bank
  10. Svenska Handelsbanken (PINK:SVNLY)
