The 12 most important banks in the world

We share the 12 banks considered most capable of impacting the world economy, according to the Financial Stability Board.

Just over 10 years since the global financial crisis, the Financial Stability Board (FSB) last week published its annual list of global systematically important banks (G-SIBs).

The group is determined through scores on 12 underlying indicators across the categories of size, interconnectedness, substitutability/financial institution infrastructure, complexity and cross-juridictional activity.

Each bank that make's the list is placed in one of five buckets corresponding to the additional capital buffers they are required to hold: 1.0% for bucket 1, 1.5% for bucket 2,  2.0% for bucket 3 and 2.5% for bucket 4.

We share the 12 considered most capable of impacting the world economy, from buckets two to four.
