Leading UK banks 2018, by total assets

Leading banks in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2018, by total assets (in billion GBP)

Leading UK banks 2018, by total assets This statistic presents the leading banks in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2018, ranked by total value of assets, expressed in billion British pounds. Total assets is one of the main measures of a bank's prosperity, and is defined as all assets owned by a bank. This includes, but is not limited to; cash and balances, loans and advances to banks and customers, as well as debt securities.
At the end of 2018, HSBC Holding's total assets value amounted to just over two trillion British pounds, making the bank headquartered in London the leading bank in the ranking. The assets of The Royal Bank of Scotland (headquartered in Edinburgh) reached a value of approximately 694 billion British pounds, securing the fourth position in the ranking of the largest banks listed by assets value. Bank rankings vary in terms of measures employed to calculate the outcomes.

A different measure, frequently employed to determine the size of a bank, is market capitalization, or the total dollar market value of a company's outstanding shares. Market capitalization is calculated from the current market price of one share and the number of shares outstanding for a company.
