Net Interest Income is the difference between the interest earned from bank’s assets to the interest expenses on the bank’s deposits. A typical bank’s asset consists of all forms of personal and commercial loans, mortgages and securities. The liabilities are the customer deposits. The excess revenue that is generated from the interest earned on assets over the interest paid out on the deposits is the net interest income. Interest income to total funds ratio indicates how much interest is earned with respect to total deposits.

The importance of this ratio is that we get to know the earnings percentage of the total deposits in a bank. This stream of revenue is not dependent on the bank’s capital adequacy ratio and consequently, the potential to generate the income is immense. A higher ratio indicates that the bank is able to use its deposits more efficiently. The ratio is also influenced by gains on government securities which fluctuate with fluctuation in the Interest rate of the country.

By calculating this ratio, we can get an idea of how much interest the bank is earning and compare it with respect to the total funds i.e. deposits. If the ratio is higher, it is a good sign for a financing co. It means the bank is using its funds efficiently to earn interest. And if the total funds increase, the interest should also increase proportionately and if it doesn’t then there can be an efficiency issue.

Interest Income to Total Funds (%) = Net interest X 100/Total Deposits

Suppose a bank ABC has net interest-earning of Rs. 1,00,000 and its total deposits are Rs. 10,00,000. Then,

Interest Income to Total Funds (%) = 100000 X 100 /1000000 = 10%
