An overview of the news
This achievement marks the highest position for an Indian company on the list.
The Global 2000 ranks public companies worldwide based on sales, profits, assets, and market value.
JPMorgan tops the list
JPMorgan, America's largest bank with $3.7 trillion in assets, has secured the top spot on the Global 2000 list.
This marks its first time at the top since 2011.
The bank's strong performance during the regional banking crisis, coupled with increased deposits and the opportunistic acquisition of the failed First Republic Bank, contributed to its ranking.
Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway, which topped the list in the previous year, fell to the 338th position in the latest ranking.
This decline is attributed to unrealized losses in its investment portfolio.
Saudi Arabia's oil giant, Aramco, holds the second position on the list.

Reliance Industries leads as the highest-ranked Indian company at the 45th spot.
Other notable Indian firms include State Bank of India at 77th, HDFC Bank at 128th, ICICI Bank at 163rd, and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) at 387th.
