The Banker International Press Release: Top 1000 World Banks 2017 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Banks in Brazil, Russia and India have bounced back in The Banker’s latest ranking of Top 1000 banks, while European banks suffered further setbacks. Despite a fall in profits, Chinese banks continue to dominate the ranking.

Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) stayed top for the fifth year running with $281 billion in tier 1 capital, the key measure of the ranking. China Construction Bank came in second place and Bank of China remained in fourth position.

While total Chinese bank profits fell by nearly 5% as a result of a tougher economic climate, other BRIC countries – Brazil, Russia and India – saw big improvements. Russian bank profits rose 369%, Brazil’s increased by 179% and India’s grew 26%.

Russia’s state-owned Sberbank climbed 15 places to 36th in the ranking on the back of a 47% increase in capital. Brazil’s leading bank Itau went from 57th place to 50th with a 37% increase in capital. Yes Bank, in India, rose 129 places to 271th in the ranking on the back of a 78% increase in capital.

The Banker’s editor Brian Caplen said: “While some analysts declared the BRIC concept dead, The Banker’s Top 1000 ranking shows that fast growth in major emerging markets is still a huge economic driver. By contrast banks in some European countries remain in a poor condition.”

Italy chalked up the largest country losses ($16.3bn), followed by Portugal ($3.7bn) and Greece ($3bn). Italy’s UniCredit fell 16 places in the overall ranking to 45th and recorded the largest loss ($10.9bn).

The top six French banks have performed strongly, generating nearly $40bn of profits and 30% of total European profits. The UK has slipped from 7th to 10th after profits decreased 32% year on year to $17.3bn.

Banks from the Middle East performed well despite the fall in oil prices. Profits in the United Arab Emirates increased $2bn while capital was up nearly 40%. Profits in both Qatar and Saudi Arabia increased by $1bn while the capital uplift was 71% in Qatar and 38% in Saudi Arabia.

Top 1000 World Banks — Resurgent Russian banks dominate in CEE ranking



Banks in central and eastern Europe (CEE) have seen an overall increase in capital in the 2017 Top 1000 ranking. The aggregate Tier 1 capital of the top 25 banks in the region rose to $114.4bn, compared with last year’s $91.7bn, largely driven by the strong pick-up in figures by Russian banks.

Russia’s largest bank, state-owned Sberbank, has increased its Tier 1 capital by nearly $14.5bn since the 2016 ranking, making it comfortably the largest bank in the region. The increase also saw it rise in the overall ranking, from last year’s 51st place to 36th this year. Sberbank also has one of the region’s highest returns on capital with 24.82%.

Almost all Russian banks increased their capitalisation – the exception being Russian Agricultural Bank – and Russian results were favourably influenced by a 16.77% stronger Russian rouble to US dollar exchange rate (the currency of The Banker’s Top 1000 ranking).

Overall, 16 Russian-owned banks have made it into this year’s Top 1000, compared with 11 last year, and 14 of these are in the regional top 25. Bank Rossiya, at 22 in the CEE ranking last year, drops out of the Top 1000 this year as The Banker did not have access to its latest reports.

Russian banks also constitute eight of the region’s 10 highest movers, with six increasing their capitalisation by more than 50%. Sovcombank is a new entry into the Top 1000 following several acquisitions between 2014 and 2016.

Apart from Russian Agricultural Bank, Banca Transilvania, Getin Noble Bank and Moneta Money Bank, all the banks in the CEE top 25 have increased their capitalisation.

One of the highest movers in the CEE table is Ukraine’s State Savings Bank, which has re-entered the Top 1000 at 966 with $491m of Tier 1 capital – despite another 13.29% drop in the Ukrainian hryvnia compared to 2016’s ranking.

State Savings Bank of Ukraine was a major casualty in 2016’s ranking, when its capital fell from $1.22bn in 2014 to $289m in 2015. It is now the only Ukrainian bank in the Top 1000 after the country’s largest bank by assets, Privatbank, was nationalised at the end of 2016.

Other banks to drop out of the region’s top 25 are Belarus’s Belagroprombank (18th last year), whose capital dropped from $757m to $525m, as well as the banks positioned a respective 23rd, 24th and 25th in 2016: Slovakian Postova Banka, Bulgarian First Investment Bank and Slovenian Abanka (despite the latter increasing its capitalisation from $491m to $521m in this year’s ranking).

Top 1000 World Banks — France defies gloomy western European figures

Having already lost global importance in the last two Top 1000 rankings, in 2017’s ranking western European banks continue to trail international peers. Tier 1 capital has fallen at 15 out of the top 25 banks in the region, compared with last year’s ranking. It leaves this year’s aggregate top 25 capitalisation $65.2bn lower than last year’s $1331.8bn – a drop that would have been even further were it not for the French banks.

All six French-owned banks have increased their capitalisation compared with our 2016 ranking and five of them have high enough Tier 1 capital to place them among the region’s largest banks. French banks have also reported the majority of profits in the region.

Western Europe ROC 2017

UK banks, meanwhile, have had a large impact on the drop in aggregate capitalisation in the region. HSBC Holdings lost 9.97% in Tier 1 capital in 2016 ($15.3bn) but still leads the western European banks by some way, and holds onto ninth position globally. RBS shed $19.3bn of Tier 1 capital and thus falls 11 positions in the Top 1000 ranking. Meanwhile, Tier 1 capital at Lloyds Banking Group fell by $9.4bn in 2016, causing it to drop 11 places in the overall ranking, while Barclays’ capitalisation came in $8.2bn down on its 2015 results, causing the bank to drop one place in the Top 1000 ranking.

It should be noted that sterling has lost some 16% of its strength compared with the dollar since our 2016 ranking. (UK headquartered HSBC, however, reports in dollars.)

The currency impact was less severe on the euro, which is only 3% lower against the dollar than in last year’s ranking. Still, Italy’s UniCredit has dropped 14 places in the Top 1000 after its capitalisation fell by some $12bn in its 2016 figures.

The weak performance of UK establishment banks has been met by a surge in challenger banks. While not within western Europe’s top 25, Metro Bank is one of the region’s highest movers, having had a £400m ($507m) equity raise. This contributed to a boost in its capitalisation by 44.79% and helped the bank move up 187 places in the Top 1000. Aldermore (805) and OneSavings Bank (993) are other newcomers in this year’s ranking.

And while Germany’s Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank continue to lose ground, DZ Bank has climbed five places to enter western Europe’s top 25, as the group added about $3.4bn of Tier 1 capital in 2016.

Top 1000 World Banks — Little change but capital improves in North America

A look at North America’s bank data can give a reader déjà vu, as the names that lead the region’s ranking have not changed much for some time.

JPMorgan is still the largest bank in the region by Tier 1 capital, with $208.11bn, followed by the same eight lenders from our 2016 ranking. Below these top positions, movement is minimal, although two new names join the top 25. Citizens Bank, in 21st place, and KeyCorp, in 24th, displace M&T Bank Corporation and Discover Financial Services from last year.

However, North America’s banking is far from stale and most of the top 25 lenders have improved their capital figures over the past year.

Canada gives a more animated picture. While Royal Bank of Canada remains the country’s largest lender with $41.25bn in Tier 1 capital, Toronto Dominion Bank overtakes Scotiabank in the list. A capital reduction sees Scotiabank down two places to 11th in the regional list, while Toronto Dominion replaces it in ninth place, helped by a capital expansion.

Michigan-based Chemical Financial Corporation, owner of Chemical Bank, leads the fastest movers table, having expanded its Tier 1 capital by 87.67%. Oklahoma’s Durant Bancorp closely follows, with an 81.05% increase, then Hope Bancorp (the holding company of California-headquartered Bank of Hope), with 71.03%. In addition to its 65 branches across the US serving small and medium-sized businesses, Bank of Hope also has a representative office in South Korea.

Credit card specialist American Express leads the return on capital table, while Rhode Island-based Citizens Bank is the highest new North American entrant in The Banker’s global Top 1000 rankings.

Top 1000 World Banks — Japan's strength fails to translate into global gains

Japanese banks sustain a strong performance in the country listings, with all lenders increasing their Tier 1 capital in 2016 except Fukuoka Financial Group. Out of Japan’s top 25, Fukuoka has also suffered the most in the global Top 1000 ranking, dropping 19 places to 231.

Japanese lenders’ performance in the world ranking is mixed, however. Nine of the top 25 banks have moved up, while 11 banks have lost ground. Two lenders stay put and the remaining three are new to the country ranking.

The three mega-banks – Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group (SMFG) and Mizuho Financial Group – retain the top three positions in the same order as last year. Of these, SMFG registered the highest increase in Tier 1 capital, from $80.19bn in 2015 to $88.77bn in 2016.

Japan has two new entrants in the global ranking, Concordia Financial Group and Mebuki Financial Group, which come in 138th and 193th, respectively. They also make the country’s top 25, ranking a respective ninth and 13th.

The newcomers shake up the bottom half of the country listings, with Fukuoka Financial Group dropping to 17th from 14th position, and Iyo Bank and Chugoku Bank both moving down one spot to 18th and 20th, respectively. Last year, there was only one new entrant, Kyushu Financial Group, now at 15th in this year’s top 25.

Three banks have lost their spots in the top 25 Japan listing. Hiroshima Bank’s entry in 25th place knocks 77 Bank out of the top 25. Bank of Yokohama and Joyo Bank also exit the country group.

A new entrant in 2015, Tokyo TY Financial Group tops the highest movers table this year with a 41.85% year-on-year increase in Tier 1 capital that took the overall volume to $2.52bn in 2016. Last year, the highest mover (Shinkin Central Bank) registered a lower increase of 28.37%.

There are three new names in the top five banks by return on capital (ROC), one of which tops the list. Newcomer Mebuki Financial Group is the Japanese bank that registered the highest ROC in 2016 (23.9%). Tomony Holdings and second new entrant Concordia Financial Group are also new to the ROC listing, in third and fourth place, respectively.

Top 1000 World Banks — China boosts its numbers while ICBC retains lead

Chinese banks continue to rise in prominence in the global Top 1000 ranking. In total, 126 Chinese banks feature in the global listings – seven more than last year. China is only second to the US, which features 165 lenders in the Top 1000.

Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) is at the top of the global ranking for the fifth consecutive year. Its Tier 1 capital grew 2.5% year on year to reach $281.26bn in 2016.

Although the overall number of Chinese banks in the Top 1000 has grown, their positioning at the top of the global listings is slightly worse than in 2016. Agricultural Bank of China (ABC) drops from fifth to sixth, taking the total number of Chinese banks in the global top five down from four to three.

While ABC is down one place, it is still fourth in the China Top 25, where the top six banks in the regional ranking are the same as last year. Bank of Communications, which keeps the fifth spot in the China ranking, is up two places in the global ranking to 11th.

Some of the biggest movers in the China listings include China Zheshang Bank and Huishang Bank, which both climb two spots to 19th and 23rd, respectively. Meanwhile, Shanghai Rural Commercial Bank enters China’s top 25.

Within the China ranking, Bank of Cangzhou recorded the highest year-on-year increase in Tier 1 capital (73.27%) in 2016, reaching $1.26bn. This is about 51 basis points lower than the highest mover in the 2016 ranking, Bank of Tangshan.

Among the top five banks by return on capital (ROC), Zhejiang Tailong Commercial Bank bumps Bank of Taizhou down to second place to take the lead, with an ROC of 30.54%.

There are three new entrants from China in the global rankings – Guangdong Nanhai Rural Commercial Bank, Bank of Dandong and Bank of Chengde – compared with none in 2016.

Top 1000 World Banks — Profits in western Europe and Asia fall as Americas and CEE recover



Pre-tax profits across the world’s Top 1000 banks in The Banker’s 2017 ranking have fallen compared with figures from the 2016 ranking – if only by $2bn to about $1068bn.

Starting from a low base, the share of pre-tax profits of western European banks in the ranking has further decreased. Banks from the region have shed 2.78 percentage points compared with The Banker’s last ranking, leaving western European banks with only 12.91% of global profits. This is largely due to aggregate losses by banks in Greece, Italy and Portugal, and lower profits recorded by banks in Germany, Switzerland and the UK.

The only western European institution in the top 25 banks by return on capital (ROC) is newcomer OneSavings Bank.

While lower profits in China and Japan cause Asia-Pacific’s share of profits fall for the fourth year in a row, banks from the region nevertheless account for 46.03% of the overall profits (compared with last year’s 48.28%). India’s Bandhan Bank has the region’s highest ROC with 96.21%, while another four banks from Asia-Pacific are among the top 25 banks by ROC.

Where western Europe and Asia-Pacific have lost, Latin America has gained 2.57 percentage points of the global profit share to reach 7.07%, as Brazilian banks have turned a corner. All but five banks out of 20 in the country have increased their profits in this year’s ranking and Banco Bradesco is one of the most profitable globally, with ROC of 40.51%.

Ten banks from Latin America are in the top 25 by ROC – although, as was the case last year, The Banker excluded banks from Venezuela from the ROC table, as their inclusion would distort results due to extreme differences between official exchange rates and the black market. Venezuelan banks are included in the aggregate figure, however.

Central and eastern European banks, which have in the past ranking faced a significant hit to earnings, have also registered an improvement this year. On aggregate the banks have 1.86% of the overall share compared with last year’s 0.49% and move past African banks for the first time since 2014’s ranking. The turnaround comes as only three banks in the whole region are now recording losses and thanks to a markedly better performance by Russian banks (two are in the top 25 by ROC).

For the second year in a row, North American banks have improved their share of profits (by 1.29 percentage points to 26.21%), and the shares of the Middle Eastern and African banks remain stable.

Top 1000 World Banks — Brazil's banks weather twin storms to stay in front

The past two years have seen Brazil's banks endure both a full-blown recession and the widening of a corruption scandal that has reached the very top of the country's business and political worlds.

As the Brazilian economy begins to recover, its banks’ balance sheets continue to improve, as shown in The Banker's ranking of the leading Latin American and Caribbean banks. Itaú Unibanco’s figures are particularly impressive. In dollar terms, by the end of 2016 the bank had expanded its Tier 1 capital by more than one-third, the equivalent of $9.67bn. Its strength is visible even when stripping the benefits of a more favourable exchange rate. Expressed in local currency, the year-on-year Tier 1 capital growth is still an impressive 14.79%.

And it is not only market leaders that have performed well in the country. Banco do Nordeste do Brasil recorded Tier 1 capital growth even greater than Itaú’s, at 82.81%, and leads the highest movers table. Brazil’s other behemoths, Banco do Brasil, Bradesco and Caixa, remain the second, third and fourth largest banks in Latin America, respectively.

Bancolombia, Brazil's BTG Pactual and Banco de la Nación Argentina, on the other hand, climb up to a respective fifth, sixth and seventh positions. Bancolombia makes the biggest jump, from 11th place previously to fifth.

It should be noted that in last year's ranking, Venezuelan banks occupied these positions. Usually Latin America’s high scorers, they are now absent from our regional list. The presence of different official exchange rates and the yawning differences among them, as well as the unofficial rate, obfuscate the analysis of Venezuelan banks. Therefore, we have decided that, while these lenders should continue to appear in the global list, their presence in the regional ranking would distort the picture and obscure the achievements of others in Latin America, hence their omission.

Top 1000 World Banks — Australia ahead in Asia-Pacific as Indonesia rises

Two Indonesian banks, Bank Mandiri and Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI), have entered the Asia Pacific (excluding China and Japan) country listings in 19th and 20th place, respectively. Mandiri's Tier 1 capital grew from $7.33bn to $10.44bn in 2016 and BRI's from $6.77bn to $10.17bn.

This growth has pushed the two banks up in the 2017 Top 1000 ranking to 126th and 127th positions, respectively. Indonesian banks also feature strongly in the highest movers ranking, with three lenders present.

The rise of the two Indonesian banks means the total number of Taiwanese banks in the regional ranking drops from two to one. Thai bank Siam Commercial Bank also loses its place in the listing.

At the opposite end of the Asia-Pacific top 25, ANZ Banking Group bumps National Australia Bank down to second place and takes the lead. As in 2016’s ranking, Australian banks take the top four spots. Asia-Pacific’s new entrant in the global ranking with the highest Tier 1 capital is also from Australia. Newcastle Permanent Building Society enters the ranking in 897th, with $581m in Tier 1 capital.

At seven, the total number of South Korean banks in the Asia-Pacific top 25 is unchanged. But the country's top lender, in seventh place, is KB Financial Group, which has overtaken Korea Development Bank.

As in the 2016 ranking, Taiwan is the highest mover in the Asia-Pacific top 25. Industrial Bank of Taiwan grew its Tier 1 capital by 90.84% to $1.24bn in 2016. Malaysia Building Society and Kazakhstan’s Tsesnabank enter the highest movers listings with Tier 1 capital increases of 35.36% and 32.43%, respectively.

Indian banks have endured mixed results in the Asia-Pacific top 25. State Bank of India and ICICI Bank retain fifth and 14th positions, respectively, while HDFC Bank moves up two to 16th. However, Axis Bank drops two places to 24th. Meanwhile, Indian lender Bandhan Bank heads the top five return on capital listings at 96.21%.
