What is a Loan Production Trend Report for Banks?
Loan Production Trend Reports are considered operational analysis tools and are used by executives and loan managers to monitor trends and anomalies in branch-level and consolidated loan metrics. Some of the main functionality in this type of report is that it displays all the months of the year across the columns and loan metrics with totals down the rows. Key figures for each loan category are: Interest Rate, FTP Expense, Net Interest Margin, Loan Fees and Origination Fees. Examples of loan types in this report are: Commercial/Construction Loans, Mortgages, Consumer Loans, and Total for All Loans (not visible in the screenshot below). You find an example of this type of report below.
Purpose of Loan Production Trend Reports

When used as part of good business practices in Loan- and Finance departments, a bank can improve its product offerings and profitability, and it can reduce the chances that decision-makers lack key monthly trend insights when they create or modify loan products and terms.
