20 Banks That Could Bring The Entire Financial System To Its Knees

NYU's Stern School of Business has released its rankings of the banking institutions that are most capable of causing major damage to our financial system. The ranking is based on the percentage of total systemic capital that each institution would be responsible for should it default. The study also identified the amount of capital shortfall that each firm would experience should the market fall into steep decline (SRISK) and what percentage the company's stock would decline in the event of a two percent market fall (MES). #1 Bank Of America CEO Brian Moynihan Systemic Risk: 20.5% SRISK: $116 billion MES: 3.52% Company Type: Depositories SRISK describes the capital shortfall in a steep market decline. MES describes the projected stock decline when the market drops two percent. From a study by NYU Stern.
