World's Safest Banks 2013

New York, August 26, 2013 - Global Finance magazine has named the World’s Top 10 Safest Commercial Banks in an exclusive survey to be published in the October 2013 issue. Winners were selected through an evaluation of long-term credit ratings—from Moody’s, Standard & Poor’s and Fitch—and total assets of the 500 largest banks worldwide.


The full World’s Safest Banks report evaluates the safest banks in Western Europe, Central and Eastern Europe, Asia, the Middle East, North America, Latin America and Australasia.
