Analytical & Planning Services
To help your organization identify ways to enhance profitability, we can:
- Analyze profitability analysis to identify strategies for improving earnings
- Help structure a budget to control costs or monitor profit-enhancement strategies
- Perform cash-management and float-control studies to identify opportunities for profit improvement through improved asset use
- Perform marketing studies to reveal ineffective targeting of customers or identify new products or markets
- Apply interest rate risk management and spreadsheet models that analyze interest rates and net interest margins to improve profit or assist management in responding to changes in interest rates
- Evaluate the viability of new business ventures and opportunities
Through our asset/liability management services, you can anticipate the impact of financial decisions; stabilize margins; quantify relative risks from different investment, loan and deposit positions; and monitor the volume and mix of rate-sensitive assets and liabilities.
Benchmarking allows your bank to access its current financial performance and focus on strategic opportunities for future performance improvement. It allows you to select “strategic peers” meeting the benchmarking criteria you consider important. For example, you may want to compare your return on equity to that of other institutions with similar growth rates in a two-state area. Or, you may want to compare your portfolio strategies with those of institutions of your asset size throughout the country.
BKD has access to a database of every bank in the country. Using the criteria you select, we can compare and analyze your data with your peers. You can then benchmark your current performance and identify strategies to improve or maintain performance.
