These are a list of the banks in the world, as measured by total assets.[1]

By total assets

The list is based on the S&P Global Market Intelligence report 2017 of the 100 largest banks in the world.[1] Accounting treatment affects the assets reported. For example, the United States uses US GAAP (as opposed to IFRS), which only reports the net derivative position in most cases, leading to US banks having fewer derivative assets than comparable non-US banks.[2]
