Bank Liquidity and Funding

Liquidity and funding are two important considerations when evaluating a bank. It gives us a sense of how a bank finances its activities and can help both depositors and customers better understand a banks financial positioning. A large and growing deposit base is usually a good sign for a bank’s liquidity and funding. This is because customer deposits are often a cheap source of financing as many of those accounts do not pay interest or much interest. Looking at John Marshall Bank, they have total customer deposits of $1,839 million which over the past year has registered an increase of 13.1%. Furthermore, the bank has a loan to deposit ratio of 86% which is above the national average. Banks in the United States have a loan to deposit ratio of approximately 82%. A lower ratio is better since it means that a bank’s lending activities are more comfortably covered by its deposit base. All of the bank’s deposits are sourced from domestic depositors, which is helpful from a risk assessment standpoint.
