Abstract: The banking sector plays an essential economic role in providing financial intermediation and economic acceleration by converting deposits into productive investments. A strong banking sector can deal with any crisis and contribute abundantly to the stabilization of the economy. GCC is home to one of the fastest increasing banking sectors in the world. The objective of this study is to identify the country that has the best-performing banking sector in the GCC and to rank the best-performing banks in the GCC based on different parameters like the total asset, net profit, return on asset (ROA), return on equity (ROE), capital adequacy ratio and cost-to-income ratio. The study includes all the 55 listed banks from the GCC countries. The study revealed that Emirates NBD from the UAE is at the top rank under Net Profit and ROE, the second rank in ROA, and the third rank in Total Assets. Qatar National Bank from Qatar has been ranked the best under the category Total Assets, rank two under net profit, rank four in ROE, and cost-to-income ratio. The National Commercial Bank from Saudi Arabia was ranked third in ROE and ROA and rank four under Total Asset and Net Profit.
