2021 List of Global Systemically Important Banks (G-SIBs)
The 2021 list of globally systemic banks (G-SIBs) is based on end-2020 data and an assessment methodology designed by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS).
The 30 banks on the list remain the same as the 2020 list. Within the list, three banks have moved to a higher bucket: JP Morgan Chase has moved from bucket 3 to bucket 4, BNP Paribas has moved from bucket 2 to bucket 3 and Goldman Sachs has moved from bucket 1 to bucket 2.
The assignment of G-SIBs to the buckets, in the list published today, determines the higher capital buffer requirements that will apply to each G-SIB from 1 January 2023.
In the near term, the BCBS will review the implications of developments related to the European Banking Union for the G-SIB methodology. In particular, this will include a targeted review of the treatment of cross-border exposures within the Banking Union on the G-SIB methodology.
