The purpose of this study is the analysis of the main non-financial multinationals in the world, based on the assets held abroad and depending on the transnationality index (TNI) in 2013. In order to achieve the purpose of the current paper we employed data from UNCTAD database and the World Investment Report (WIR) from 2015. Information on multinationals ranked by foreign assets according to the World Investment Report in 2015 show that, based on the TN, European multinationals, such as the ones in France, Italy, Germany and Norway, have a higher transnationality index compared to multinationals from larger countries, such as the US and China. Among the top 10 European multinationals, the transnationality index reached an average of 55 % in 2013.
