Largest Banks in the Philippines (2009)

Last year, we posted a list of the Top 10 Banks in the Philippines, based on total assets and deposits at year-end 2008. We now bring you the list of the Largest Banks in the Philippines, in terms of assets, deposits, and net income, as of year-end 2009.

The list only includes banks headquartered in the Philippines, meaning other banks based in another country but with local operations are not analyzed. Also, since the basis of the financial figures are the financial statements submitted to the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE), only publicly-listed banks are mentioned. Government- and privately-owned banks whose financial statements are not available to the public are excluded in the list.

  2. HarryPotterSagaMovies says:

    BDO is big because it backed by the SM group of companies but I admire Metrobank more. Its a classic example of strength brought about by good mgt and years of experience. This is what you call solid as an oak tree!

    I am starting to like the services of RCBC and am glad they rose to number 4. Their tellers and customer service are very friendly and patient. I have savings, checking and Bankard (RCBC Credit Card brand) with them. Unlike some banks who have the habit of looking down on people who earn less than 50K php above monthly, RCBC is very welcoming and warm.

    You have a fantastic style of writing. I pray the incoming comments and thoughts are constructive as yours.

    BDO is good for me but Excellent po ang BPI sa akin….nice tellers ang BPI.Nice location.very responsive towards clients…BPI has a lot of partner like philam life,ayala group of companies,globe,jollibee etc. hustle free pa kasi sa computer nalang ako mag bayad nang bills ko.mag transfer ng funds ko.mag inquire ng balance pwede sa ito pa ang nakakabilib sa BPI…walamg bayad lahat ng transaction nila,mag deposit mag withdraw at SBA payments kahit saan pang branches.naku talagang walang bayad.subukan mo kaya sa BDO, metrobank at ibang bangko mag deposit tapos ang account mo ay nasa ibang branch naku tumatagingting na 50 to 100 ang charges nila.good thing of BPI which other bank cannot surpass

    1. Jesusa_ignacio2000 says:

      anong 50 ! 100 pesos nga yong charge nila nung nag w.draw ako, dhil sa branch dw ako nag w.draw.kung ok ang BPI dun nlang ako mag open ulit ng account.

  8. shiena says:

    For me BPI.the strongest and stable bank.kasi the oldest and the first bank in the philippine history never sila natinag throughout many crisis.ok lang kahit top 3 lang sa largest bank.kasi top 1 naman sa income.Para sa akin income naman talaga binabasihan sa negosyo diba.?

    1. Mark Joseph T. Fernandez says:

      For me total debt to total asset ratio is still the best. Ano naman kung malaki ang assets nila pero halos utang naman? Ok din net income.

    2. Cash Combo says:

      plus the fact na mas ok customer service and online banking nila unlike BDO.

  9. craft says:

    naalala nyo paba? kung anong bangko yung nadalit sa controversy ng Jose Pidal accounts.kasi ibinuyang yang nila ang secrecy ng depositor’s account which is confidential po yan.ano pang bangko yun?

    1. surveyor says:

      equitable pci yata?

  10. Mark Joseph T. Fernandez says:

    Bakit walang ranking by net worth or by debt to asset ratio? Malay mo ang laki ng assets nila pero puro utang naman. Diba?

  11. Gracelyn Camansi says:

    therefore,the banco de oro has a good flow in the number of total assets….the people around bdo are very good because they are able to lessen their liabilities instead,the assets.

  12. Ddhoze says:

    metro bank pa rin… as you can see no.2 cia sa lahat ng categories… meaning stable ang assets, diposits at net income nya.

  13. Dalton Sissel says:
