The predecessor of the Agricultural Bank of China was the Agricultural Cooperative Bank, established in 1951. Since the late 1970s, the bank has evolved from a state-owned specialized bank to a wholly state-owned commercial bank and subsequently to a state-controlled commercial bank. The bank was restructured into a joint stock limited liability company in January 2009. In July 2010, the bank was listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange and the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. At the launch of the listing, the bank had the world's largest initial public offering (IPO) at that time. It's ranked 6th in Forbes Global 2000 list of the world's biggest public companies. At the end of 2016 the bank controlled assets worth USD 2.816 trillion.
