World’s Strongest banks

Bloomberg has released their latest and very interesting “World’s Strongest Bank” analysis, that ranked 97 banks with assets of at least $100bln in assets.

Rankings were determined by five criteria, in order of importance:

1. Ratio of Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets
2. Ratio of nonperforming assets to total assets
3. Ratio of reserves for loan losses to nonperforming assets
4. Ratio of deposits to funding
5. Ratio of costs to revenues

EMEA has 9 of the top banks followed by Asia with 8 and Americas with only 4, of which three are Canadian.

The actual rankings are as follows:
