The Financial Stability Board (FSB), in consultation with Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) and national authorities, has identified the 2016 list of global systemically important banks (G-SIBs), using end-2015 data and the updated assessment methodology published by the BCBS in July 2013.1 The 30 institutions identified as G-SIBs in 2016 remain the same as those on the 2015 list.

The changes in the allocation across buckets of the institutions on the list reflect the combined effects of data quality improvements, changes in underlying activity, and the use of supervisory judgement.
