Indian Banks in the S&P Global top 50 Asia Pacific region 

Only two Indian banks, SBI and HDFC, were included in the top 50 Asia-Pacific regions based on their assets in the 2022 list. This year, ICICI Bank was also included in the list. The aggregate assets of these three top Indian lenders rose sharply by 50.5 percent to $1.51 trillion in 2023.

State Bank of India

India’s largest commercial bank, State Bank of India, was the top-ranked bank in the 2023 list. 

The government-owned SBI improved its ranking from 20 in 2023 to 21 in 2022. In 2023, SBI's assets increased to $780.05 billion.

HDFC Bank 

India’s largest private sector bank, HDFC Bank, was the second-highest-ranked Indian bank in 2023. In 2022, it was ranked 46, while in 2023, it jumped to 33.

The second largest private sector bank in India, ICICI Bank, was included for the first time on the list of the top 50 Asia Pacific banks. ICICI Bank was ranked 48th.
