Alvarez & Marsal, a consulting firm, ranked Europe’s largest banks in terms of performance. We picked the worst 10.
A&M ranked the banks based upon 13 different "key performance indicators" across profitability and resilience in areas such as growth, operating efficiency, risk, liquidity, and solvency.
In doing so it shows which banks are the strongest and safest of Europe’s banks, and which are the riskiest.
Given Deutsche Bank’s struggles in the past eight months it is no surprise that they are near the back of the pack. British banks such as Lloyds and Barclays also ranked poorly.
In the report, A&M said "European banking has become a battle only for the brave," adding that "four banks are falling behind the pack and need to rethink their strategy and restructure parts of their business."
Here are Europe’s 10 riskiest banks in 2019.
10. Barclays (Assets: $859.7 billion)
Barclays came in at 10th — ranking poorly on returns and solvency, but ranked highly in revenues, costs, and liquidity.
9. Commerzbank (Assets: $514.5 billion)
The German bank came in ninth after a poor performance in costs and returns, according to A&M, but gave a strong showing in asset quality.
8. UBS (Assets: $1066.8 billion)
The Swiss bank scored poorly in costs and solvency but highly in revenues.
