One more year we collect the list of the most important banks in the world. In the last annual financial year, Chinese banks have seen a considerable increase in value. Compared to the previous year, we can see an increase in the world's largest banks of up to 5.4 trillion euros in market capitalization.

The Asian market continues to advance compared to the previous year and the US hegemony in the world banking sector is diminishing, with the exception of JP Morgan Chase, which manages to maintain the first position by a small difference.

Today, Jp Morgan Chase has 322 and 2,533 billion euros, in concept of market capitalization and total assets respectively. ICBC, of ​​Chinese nationality and headquartered in Beijing, starts from a second place with a total of assets higher than the US bank, dated at 25,764 and a market capitalization of 298 billion euros, and finally, in third place appears the Bank of America, which has been able together with the Chinese bank to displace its American compatriot Wells Fargo to a fourth place. Bank of America has a market capitalization of 266.51 and total assets of 2,281 billion euros.

As for Spanish banking entities, only Banco Santander is close to the top 10, which despite having only increased one position in the ranking, is still the first largest European bank in the world. They are followed by BBVA and Caixabank, whose situation has not changed compared to the previous year, ranking 34 and 74 respectively.

In Latin America, with the exception of the Brazilian bank Itau whose reality is the same as the previous year, the rest have improved their position in the ranking. The banks Bradesco, Santander Brasil and do Brasil, are ranked 24.52 and 58 respectively, compared to the positions of 31.60 and 63 that were located the previous year. Grupo Financiero Banorte de México is in position number 99 on the list. Although the first bank in Mexico, BBVA Bancomer, is integrated into the BBVA group, which occupies position 34 on the list.
