Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam Prosperity Joint Stock Commercial Bank (VPBank) has jumped 37 spots to enter the Brand Finance’s top 250 in rankings of the world’s most valuable banks in 2021.

According to the Brand Finance Banking 500 2021 ranking, VPBank ranked 243rd in banking brand value this year.

Its brand value grew 41 percent to 502 million USD this year from 354 million USD in 2019. It also represents a nine-fold increase against 2016 when the bank’s brand value was first evaluated at 56 million USD.

The 2021 ranking was calculated based on a brand’s market share, growth rate, property size, financial capacity, operating efficiency and prestige, said Lai Tien Manh from Brand Finance Vietnam.

In the face of COVID-19 that has taken a heavy toll on the global financial system, VPBank’s brand value growth is spectacular, he added.

Ending 2020, the bank’s total asset reached 419 trillion VND (nearly 18.2 billion USD), outstanding loans exceeded 320 trillion VND, while non-performing loan rate was kept at below 3 percent.

Eight other Vietnamese banks have also been named in the Brand Finance Banking 500, namely Agribank, Vietcombank, VietinBank, BIDV, Techcombank, MB, Sacombank and ACB./.
