Here are the 50 Largest Banks in Europe (2019)

Here are the 50 Largest Banks in Europe (2019)
  • The top three banks in Europe, based on figures for 2017, have remained unchanged.
  • British bank HSBC is still the top largest bank in Europe, with a balance sheet total of $2,470 billion.
  • The UK has three banks in the top 10 largest banks in Europe as well as six banks in the top 50.

For large banks, the balance sheet total is still a crucial indicator of how well a bank is doing.

With the 2018 edition of the 50 largest European banks published by S&P Global Market Intelligence on Wednesday, we get a good indication of each bank’s volume in terms of lending (i.e. mortgages, business loans) and assets.

The top three banks in Europe, based on figures for 2017, haven’t budged. With its total assets amounting to $2,470 billion, British bank HSBC still comes out on top as the largest bank in Europe, followed by French lenders BNP Paribas and Crédit Agricole.
