The 18 Most Profitable Banks in The UK?>
Using data provided by The Banker, a magazine covering the financial sector, Business Insider has compiled a list of the lenders in the UK which made the most money last year.
Understandably, the UK’s biggest banks like Barclays, HSBC and Lloyds top the ranking, simply by virtue of having far, far greater assets than the majority of lenders. One of Britain’s best-known lenders, RBS, misses out having made a loss of close to £7 billion last year as it continues to recover from the crisis.
Business Insider has included those banks that are either headquartered in the UK, or do the majority of their business in the UK, and which made a pre-tax profit of more than £100 million ($129.5 million).
