The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, a group of bank supervisors from 28 jurisdictions, created a set of 12 financial indicators in 2011 to identify global systemically important banks (G-SIBs). A G-SIB is a bank whose failure could pose a threat to the international financial system. A bank designated as a G-SIB must hold more risk-based capital to enhance its resilience, and is subject to additional regulatory oversight.
The capital add-on, or surcharge, for each bank "bucket" is shown in the legend below. Mouse over a horizontal bar in the chart to see a bank's G-SIB score for that period. Click on a bar to see underlying data for that bank in each of the five scoring categories for systemic importance. Click on the bar for one of the categories to see data for the indicators underlying that category.
To see data about banks in another region, click on the "REGIONS" drop-down menu.
The raw data and methodology used in this chart can be found at the Bank for International Settlements website here. The OFR consolidated the data and made the dataset available for download here. For analysis of the methodology, see OFR briefs on the topic from April 2016, August 2015, and February 2015. For analysis of other systemic importance indicators, see OFR viewpoint from October 2017.

OVERALL G-SIB SCORE
Basel Committee cap introduced in 2013. See August 2015 OFR brief (link above) for more details.
These data are used to calculate banks' scores under the Basel Committee's methodology, which is also used under the U.S. final rule for calculating banks' capital add-ons. The Basel Committee released the data, which are as of Dec. 31, 2017, in November 2018.
The data from an earlier reporting period were used for the calculations in the OFR briefs. Individual banks' subsequent revisions to their systemic importance data are not reflected in the data relied on by the Basel Committee or in the OFR briefs. Additionally, adopted capital surcharges may vary by country. In the case of the United States, the Federal Reserve has an alternative method that results in slightly different surcharges for some U.S. G-SIBs.
