Turning Bank Financial Statements into Useful Ratios & Trends

Whether you are the head of lending, technology, or operations, you need to fully understand the bigger picture of the bank. This session will help you fully comprehend the bank’s critical financial information. You will learn that although the balance sheet and the income statement are useful, they are just the raw materials. The real value lies in key ratios and the trends in those ratios. After this webinar, you will know how to take information from the financial statements, use formulas to calculate ratios, and develop an essential dashboard of key ratios. More importantly, you will know what they mean, what changes in those ratios indicate, and how to use them strategically and tactically as your bank moves forward.
