For the thirteenth year running, Zenith Bank Plc has been named by The Banker Magazine as the top tier-1 bank in Nigeria.

According to the journal’s 2022 Top 1000 World Banks Ranking, Zenith Bank ranked 460th overall with a Tier-1 capital of $2.75 billion.

The ranking, which appeared in the July 2022 issue of The Banker Magazine published by the Financial Times Group in the UK, was based on the global Tier-1 capital of banks as of the end of the 2021 fiscal year.

According to regulators, the primary indicator of a bank’s financial soundness is capital sufficiency, which is described as Tier-1 Capital. The ranking states that Tier-1 Capital includes loss-absorbing capital, such as common stock, reported reserves, retained earnings, and minority holdings in the equity of subsidiaries that are not entirely owned, as defined by the most recent Bank for International Settlements (BIS) criteria.
