What is a Loan Profitability Trend Report for Banks?
Loan Profitability Trend Reports are considered operational reports and are used by executives and loan managers to analyze monthly trends in loan KPIs. Some of the main functionality in this type of report is that it dynamically lists the months of the year across the columns and loan metrics down the rows with a Gross Profit total at the bottom. Some of the key rows include: Portfolio average balance, Loan production, Nbr origination, Average size, Interest rate, FTP Expense, Net interest margin, Total Revenues, Origination costs, Servicing costs, Teller costs, Online costs, Total expenses, and Gross Profit. The green, yellow and red exception colors help highlight months with high/low profitability. You find an example of this type of report below.
