Stronger balance sheets, weaker profits - Ranking Asia Pacific's largest and strongest banks


The Asian Banker 500 (TAB500) is an annual ranking of the financial balance sheet performance of the commercial banking industry in the Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa. The ranking not only categorises banks according to asset size but by overall strength based on The Asian Banker proprietary assessment approach which is based on the belief that a strong bank demonstrates long term profitability from its core businesses.

The AB500 does not only track numerical changes but also the fundamental transformation of these institutions as they confront an unpredented level of disruption on various fronts; regulation, technology, competition and customers.

This RadioFinance session will take a look at some of the key findings originating from the 2017 ranking and will discuss the key drivers impacting the performance of banks, the agents of disruption, as well as how the best banks manage disruption to stay ahead in their respective  markets.
