pdf file List of Top 200 banks in Central and Eastern Europe

Total banking assets in CEE15* topped 1.04 billon EUR, after increasing by ~1% in 2013. The recent growth in assets could be attributed mainly to positive developments in Poland, Czech Republic and few smaller peripheral countries including: Albania, BH and FYROM. In contrast, banking markets in Slovenia and Hungary continued to contract being affected by structural problems and unfavourable regulatory or fiscal environments.

CEE15 banking markets continue to be dominated by foreign investors with: UniCredit, Erste, Raiffeisen and KBC controlling a combined 28% of total banking assets in the region. The fifth major banking group in CEE15 is Poland's PKO Bank Polski group with a regional market share of 5.3%. The TOP200 CEE league table is led by two Polish banks: PKO (assets of EUR 47.3 billion) and Bank Pekao (assets of EUR 37.4 billion), followed by the Czech major bank CSOB (assets of EUR 33.6 billion).

Despite recently observed convergence trends, there are still significant differences among CEE countries in terms of banking intermediation levels. While banking assets per capita exceed 20k EUR in Slovenia, the benchmark is over 6 times lower for Albania or Bosnia-Herzegovina. The outlook for most CEE banking markets remains positive. The level of financial intermediation for most of CEE is still extremely low if compared to Western Europe and the gap is expected to narrow gradually. Nevertheless, factors like hostile fiscal policy (case Hungary), economic rebalancing (case Slovenia) or poor supervision (case Bulgaria) may temporarily weigh on banking sectors in selected countries. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *CEE15 includes Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovak Republic, Romania, Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, and Macedonia.
