Banks are differently analyzed using a different kind of ratios to determine the strength in their lending and borrowing books. Thus Yield on advances is one such ratio which is calculated for the banks and NBFC’s. Financial ratios are an important tool in deciding the investment rationale behind any company. There are a lot of ratios such as PE ratio, Net profit margin, interest coverage ratio etc. used for the valuation of a company. Banks are quantified under different ratios like NIM’s, NPA’s, Provision coverage ratio, CASA ratio etc. Let’s understand in detail.
Impact of yield on advances
The average yield on investment results from adding all interests, dividend or other income generated from the investments divided by the average of the investments for the year. The average annual yield on an investment is a useful tool for floating rate investments, in which the fund’s balance and/or the interest rate changes frequently. The higher banks and financial institutions’ loan to asset ratio, the higher is its yield on returning assets. This is because higher-yielding vehicles bring in more income relative to the amount of money on loan.
Suppose a company earns interest of Rs 10 lac and the advances are 25 lac, then its yield on advances is 10/25 or 40%.
