The TOP 1000 Banks Index at 50
The Banker’s Top 1000 ranking of world banks is an industry standard, much relied upon by both bankers and analysts as a way of comparing institutions. In 2020, the ranking turns 50 years old providing the opportunity to look at how the fortunes of different banks have risen and fallen over the years.
In a special talk to commemorate The Top 1000 at 50, The Banker’s editor looks at how the ranking was once dominated by American banks, then European, then Japanese and now Chinese. He will also explore the impact of the financial crisis on banking and the huge transformations that have taken place since 1970.
