Net interest margin (NIM) is a ratio that defines a bank’s profitability. It quantifies the difference between the interest revenue earned on loans and the interest paid on deposits. A higher NIM often suggests that the bank is more profitable.
Bank’s net interest margin can be influenced by multiple variables, the most important of which are supply and demand. If there is a high demand for savings accounts relative to loans, the net interest margin decreases because the bank is anticipated to pay more interest than it earns.
