Banking presents statistical characteristics about size, profitability and penetration of banking services, including trends. Commonly examined data include size of the banking sector (volume of assets and structure of assets), its funding (such as volume and structure of deposits) and capitalisation (various capital ratios). In more details, bank loans are analyses to present details such as (structure of corporate and retail loans, volume of bad loans and their provision coverage). In addition, you might find a breakdown of banks' profitability into revenues (with statistics such as interest income and expenses, asset yield, cost of liabilities and net interest spread and margin), costs, or amount of provisions.
