World's largest banks 2021


Once again, we publish the ranking of the largest banks in the world. For yet another year, European banks are losing positions in favor of Chinese banks.

In the undisputed first position is the American bank JP Morgan. Bank that ranks 13th in the list of the world's largest companies.

A long way off is the Bank of America and then the four largest public banks in China, the ICBC CCB, China Merchants and ABC. Rounding out the top 10 are Wells Fargo, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup and Bank of China banks.

The largest banks in the world by country

If we analyze the list by country, the United States slightly surpasses China as the world's leading power in terms of the number of large banks, with 17 banks, compared to 15 in China. Although it is important to bear in mind that Chinese banks operate almost exclusively in the Asian country and are public banks. While the Americans have a relevant weight outside the country.

As for Spanish banks, long gone are the times when Santander bank was in the top 10 of the largest banks in the world. This year, it is ranked 27th in the ranking. For its part, BBVA is placed in position number 55 and CaixaBank in position 91.

In Latin America, Banco Itau is in position 44, Banco Bradesco in 63 and the subsidiary of Banco Santander in Brazil in position 78.

If we broaden the list slightly, we would see that the Mexican Elektra Group is in position 103, the Peruvian bank Credicorp is in position 108 and the Banorte de México Group in position 110.
