The top three positions (Apple, Google, Coca-Cola) remain unchanged from last year’s rankings.
But what makes a top global brand? According to Interbrand, it’s the brands “making the most impressive strides [that] tend to defy sector norms and have a clear sense of self.
"They know when to build versus borrow. Their brand and business are cohesive and built around people.
"And they have a clear strategy for growth.”
Interbrand also highlights the importance of connectivity in today’s market.
“In 2016 and beyond, the need to connect to people, to be more personal, is a critical element of brand and business growth.”
Ranking is based on three components: financial performance; role in influencing customer choice; and the strength of the brand to command a premium price or secure earnings.

#85: Jack Daniel’s
