  1. How were you able to know they are rank as it is when RBAP even refused to post ranking among its member because of the excuse given to me years ago, "as not to prejudiced the lower ranked rural banks."

    Don't get me wrong, im very thankful for this list if its as accurate as you had listed Because bsp website publishes ranking among commercial and savings banks only.

  2. Hi Amaranth Red, thanks for your comment. Comments like yours help me in my blogging decisions. About your concerns, I put a long disclaimer at the start of my first rural bank ranking. Now that you said something, I feel I should have repeated the same disclaimer in my 2nd and 3rd posts. I got the idea of ranking rural banks when I got readers' comments asking about rural banks.
    About the concern of prejudicing lower-ranked rural banks, I think this can be discussed if it really does prejudice or in contrast, it actually does good by challenging rural bank managers.
    Anyway, I have not ranked all rural banks in the Philippines, just the top rural banks, so the lowest-ranked rural banks are not "prejudiced." In my hometown, we have one rural bank, which many in the town know is a very small bank, but we still patronize it because we know the managers. What I'm saying is that the small rural banks will thrive, whether they're ranked low in national rankings as long as they have good managers.
    The bigger rural banks -- they should be able to take care of themselves.
    I also think that if the financial performances of all rural banks are published frequently, fewer rural banks become bankrupt, as this will help managers be always on their toes, and will keep certain managers thinking of fraudulent activities to think twice or thrice before doing so.
    Thanks again. Discussion is always good.

  3. After rbap turning down the request to even just post the top 10-20 rural banks out of hundreds (currently 512 remaining from 600 in 2012) so it would not prejudiced any bank lower the the 20th which is the indication that they simply refuse to tell the public that so many of their members banks are in bad shape that's why every year their list is getting shorter.

    Even the rural banks themselves when I asked their managers for a list of just top 10 only could not produced it either.

    Bsp could had easily post them on their website because all of them are required to submit their reports even refuse to post them. It should definitely have something to do with unhealthy shape of most of those banks in that category.

    anyway thanks for the reply, btw katipunan bank was ranked 18th on 2012 only , with 1.8 + billion in reported asset on march 2015.
