Key Charts - Non-Bank Financial Intermediaries

Non-Bank Financial Intermediaries Playing a Larger Role in the Global Economy
  • Non-bank financial intermediaries have been playing a larger role in filling the funding gap as many large banks retrenched after the financial crisis. Since 2008, growth in assets of non-bank financial intermediaries has surpassed those of banks.
  • As is evident from the chart, since 2008 non-bank financial intermediaries have had greater growth in assets in 2009, 2010, and 2012 as compared to banks. A caveat though - banks have a larger asset base than non-bank financial intermediaries.
  • The world's biggest asset manager, U.S.-based BlackRock, which has $4 trillion under management, is now larger than the world's biggest bank, the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, with assets of $3 trillion.[1]
