The World’s Best Banks 2009

The global banking industry is a diverse landscape of financial services – consumer, corporate, investment – but with so many players in the marketplace, which are the best in each segment?

To answer this question, Global Finance Magazine ranked the world’s best banks, using both objective and subjective criteria. The objective criteria include growth in assets, profitability, geographic reach, strategic relationships, new business development and product innovation. The subjective ones include equity and credit-rating analysts. Global finance has also identified the best bank in each of 123 individual countries.
