DUBAI, Sept 11 (Reuters) - Saudi Aramco has hired nine banks as joint global coordinators to lead its planned initial public offering (IPO), slated to be the world's largest, two sources familiar with the matter told Reuters on Wednesday.

Aramco has selected JPMorgan JPM.N, Morgan Stanley MS.N, and Saudi Arabia's National Commercial Bank 1180.SE, which were previously working on the share sale before it was paused last year, the sources said, declining to be named due to commercial sensitivities.

It has also chosen Bank of America Merrill Lynch BAC.N, Goldman Sachs GS.N, Credit Suisse CSGN.S, Citi C.N, HSBC HSBA.L, and Saudi Arabia's Samba 1090.SE, the sources said.
