The Statement is much more than a regular banking magazine. It is full of insights on where the world's best banks are going in the post-COVID age and it is anchored in continuous research among the 1000 banks from over 100 countries that we have chosen as our focus. The core of The Statement is our global ratings and rankings – all drawn from the proprietary Lafferty 1000 database.
Most important is our star-ratings and these in turn are based on 21 other metrics where banks are scored for culture, strategy, customer focus, digital transformation, board diversity, financial inclusion, climate risk reporting and more. The Best Bank per country rankings are published in The Statement. Every issue of the magazine includes multiple other ratings and rankings of the 1000 banks, including:
for metrics such as profitability, investment in staff, bank accounting, bank capital, regulation – and qualitative criteria such as CEO leadership, culture, strategy, customer focus, customer satisfaction, digital transformation, board diversity, financial inclusion and climate risk reporting.
The Lafferty 1000 database interprets the information presented by banks to shareholders, investors, and the public at large in their annual reports. The system uses a heuristic methodology to analyse the signals that banks are sending out in their annual reports – intentionally or otherwise – and combines them to score the overall bank. It uses the annual report because of its unique status as the primary vehicle for management of a bank to communicate and account to shareholders and other stakeholders.
