An Analysis of the Profitability, Risk and Growth Indicators of Banks Operating In Malta

  • Silvio John Camilleri

    (Banking & Finance Department - FEMA, University of Malta)

The paper consolidates the summarised financial statements of the main banks operating in Malta during the year 2002, to form a Typical Large Bank and a Typical Small Bank. The rofitability, risk and growth prospects of the two institutions are analysed through Return on Equity decomposition and the use of other financial ratios. Various differences between large and small institutions emerge. In particular, larger institutions realised higher profitability and cost control; they were more capitalised in absolute terms and relied relatively less on interest income. Smaller institutions generated comparatively more revenue; they were more capitalised in relative terms, were relatively more provisioned against loan losses and held a higher proportion of liquid assets.
