$111,493 million

Founded in 1951 and headquartered in Beijing, Agricultural Bank of China Limited (ABC or AgBank as it is also often referred to) is another of China’s financial institutions to have spread its reach across the world. The bank’s 444,000-odd employees can be found operating in branches throughout mainland China, Hong Kong, London, Tokyo, New York, Frankfurt, Sydney, Seoul and Singapore. In 2010 the bank became the last of China’s ‘big four’ to go public, fetching what was then the world's biggest ever initial public offering (IPO).
