Largest Banks

There are several ways to measure the size of a bank, for example by number of employees, or number of offices. The most widely used measure from the financial perspective is total assets.

Formally speaking, an asset is a resource controlled by the company as a result of past events and from which future economic benefits are expected to flow into this company. Total assets of a company is a sum of monetary values of all assets of the company.
