Because of currency-translation errors, two recent charts overstated the market capitalization of Australian banks.

The June 18 chart "Top 100 World Financial Institutions in Market Capitalization" (page 11) should have shown National Australia Bank Ltd. as 51st on March 31, with $20.3 billion in U.S. dollars; and Westpac Banking Corp. as 96th, with $12.4 billion. Australia and New Zealand Banking Group, 104th with $10.2 billion, and Commonwealth Bank of Australia, 116th with $7.9 billion, should not have been listed. The error bumped AON Corp. of Chicago and Fortis Group of Utrecht, Netherlands, off the top 100 list.
