Total assets of leading European banks 2010-2019

This statistic illustrates the total assets of Europe's five largest banks as of December 2019, from 2010 to 2019. Total assets are a popular way that regulators and academics alike use to measure the size of a bank mainly because they are easily available from all banks through financial statements but also because they are comparable between banks. This is in contrast to market capitalization which is only available from banks listed on the stock market despite showing a true current value of a company for potential investors.

Between 2010 and 2018 the largest five banks of Europe have remained stable with HSBC Holdings consistently leading the way. 2019 saw Deutsche bank fall out of the top five and be replaced by the French bank Societe Generale.
