Three thrift banks are among the Top 20 banks in the Philippines, based on assets as of September 2017. Each of the three has more assets than several commercial/universal banks.

PSBank is No. 15, with total assets of more than 221 billion.
RCBC Savings Bank is No. 20 with total assets of more than 110 billion.

Of these 14 top thrift banks, 9 are subsidiaries of commercial/universal banks:
BPI Family — subsidiary of the Bank of the Philippine Islands
PSBank — Metrobank
RCBC Savings Bank — RCBC
China Bank Savings — China Bank
City Savings — Union Bank
PNB Savings — PNB
UCPB Savings — UCPB
HSBC Savings — HSBC
BPI Direct Banko — Bank of the Philippine Islands

One observation: BPI Family is the only one among the above top thrift banks that does not have its own website. Perhaps because BPI Family’s operations are so intertwined with its parent, Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), that BPI Family does not need a separate website. Clients of BPI and BPI Family can use any of BPI and BPI Family’s ATMs and cash deposit machines without any interbank fees and use the same BPI Express online banking system.

Here’s a complete list of the top thrift banks in the Philippines, based on assets
