On April 13, 2016, the US Treasury Department’s Office of Financial Research published a paper analyzing data on global systemically important banks, based on data released in 2013 and 2014 by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision. The OFR research report analyzed data regarding 30 banks across the world identified by the Basel Committee as G-SIBs, including eight US bank holding companies. The analysis found, among other things, an increase in the systemic importance scores by Chinese banks, while the systemic importance scores of US G-SIBs generally reflected little change and continued to be among the highest amongst global banks.
