How the Big Four US banks got their names
With its large population, and big number of regional and international banks, the “big four” banks in the US only control around 39 percent of the country’s deposits.
It should also be noted that the banks are traditionally ranked by their total assets, and many of the bigger banks have institutional lending arms and offer other financial services, swelling up their asset base.
However, Citibank doesn’t really have a big branch network outside of a few major cities, including its home town, New York.
Where’s Citibank on this list? 15th.
