Global events have also meant that no point in the last two years has been the time for big risks or big consolidation in the banking sector. With the pecking order yet again unchanged, Banco Mercantil Santa Cruz (BMSC) easily holds on to its perch as the country’s largest bank. As of June, it counted $1.74 billion in total assets, accounting for about 20% of the system’s $8.38 billion. Its $796 million loan portfolio also leads the market, with 19.5% share, and $1.64 billion deposits account for 23.5%. Assets were slightly down from the $1.77 billion counted at year-end 2009, with the Bolivian system also experiencing a drop, to $8.38 billion from $8.48 billion, in that time.
