The world’s largest bank by assets, ICBC is one of the so-called Big Four state-owned banks that underpin the Chinese economy. It debuted on the Global 500 in 1999. ICBC’s total loans jumped up 8.3% last year, totalling $2.18 trillion, while the bank managed to cut its non-performing loan ratio down to 1.52%. This year, Beijing instructed the Big Four to lower interest rates as China’s economy staggers through the trade war and the government encourages SMEs to take on more debt. ICBC was reportedly the first to answer the call, forcing other banks into a price war.
