Net Interest Margins

Over the past two decades (2001-2023), Australian bank industry Net Industry Margins (NIMs) have been in decline.

The NIM is one of the key indicators of bank profitability. It measures total interest received (i.e. by people paying interest on loans) minus total interest paid (i.e. by banks paying interest on deposits) divided by the average interest earning assets.
