Net Interest Margin (NIM) is a profitability indicator that approximates the likelihood of a bank or investment firm thriving over the long haul. In simple terms, it is the difference between the net interest income generated by a bank (from loans and mortgages) and the outgoing interest that it pays to account holders (savings bank account, fixed deposits), expressed as a percentage.
