I received this list from one of the marketing reps at Alamo Title and thought I'd pass it on to all of you.  It is a list of the World's Safest Banks according to Global Finance magazine

New York, 4 September 2008 - Global Finance magazine has released its annual ranking of the

World's Safest Banks, which will be featured in the special October issue alongside several of

the magazine's renowned Best Bank awards. The World's Safest Banks were selected through a

comparison of the long-term credit ratings and total assets of the 300 largest banks around the

world. Ratings from Moody's, Standard & Poor's and Fitch were used.

This is the 16th year that Global Finance has published its list of the world's largest banks

ranked by their creditworthiness. The 10 banks at the top of the list are designated as the

"World's Safest Banks".

These banks will be honored at an awards ceremony to be held in Washington D.C. on

October 13th to coincide with the World Bank/IMF annual meeting.

"These banks have demonstrated an appropriately prudent approach to risk in

providing international financial services," says Global Finance publisher, Joseph D. Giarraputo.

"More than ever customers are viewing strong credit quality as an important feature of the

banks with which they do business."
