Banks in the list are classified as important pillars to the finance-banking system, and therefore subject to close credit risk monitoring and warning under the SBV’s instruction.

The State Bank of Vietnam (SBV), the country’s central bank, approved a list of 17 major credit institutions and foreign branches in the country’s finance-banking system in 2021.


The list included four major state-owned commercial banks, namely Agribank, Vietinbank, Vietcombank and BIDV, with combined registered capital making up 23.1% of the total in the banking system as of last August.
