New Silk Road Finance Awards 2017: Best overall Chinese bank for BRI

Bank of China


BELT AND ROAD          

Judged on purely local terms, Bank of China falls behind some of its domestic rivals: Industrial and Commercial Bank of China and China Construction Bank both bring in far more in terms of net interest income, while Agricultural Bank of China’s branch network – 23,682 at the end of 2016 – is more than twice the size of Bank of China’s. But look abroad and you see a vastly different story.

Bank of China’s renminbi clearing bank network is a plain example of how it leads the competition overseas. It was perhaps natural that it should have been picked to manage renminbi clearing in Hong Kong and Macau, setting up in 2003 and 2004 respectively.
