Best bank: Commonwealth Bank

The Bahamas is heavily dependent on tourism and offshore banking. The former experienced growth thanks to the recovery in the US, but the latter was affected by regulatory reform and continuing financial fallout from the eurozone.

Commonwealth Bank was not exempt from the industry’s challenges, but still managed to deliver strong results while increasing capital reserves. The bank boosted its tier 1 capital: the ratios of capital to risk-adjusted assets were tier 1 capital 16.3% and total capital 25.28%, compared with 15.6% and 24.3%
