American Banker recently ranked the l50 banks with the largest business loan portfolios. Citigroup Inc. topped the list at $227 billion as of September 2005. Bank of America Corp. came in second at $199 billion and JP Morgan Chase & Co. took the third spot at $183 billion. To put those figures in perspective, the total outstanding balance on business loans for the credit union industry in 2005 was $15.9 billion, according to Callahan & Associates, Inc.

BancFirst Corp. in Oklahoma City, ranked 150th on the list, amassed $1.2 billion in business loans, according to the publication.
