# Net Interest Margin

Financial Term

Net Interest Margin (NIM) is a financial metric used in the banking and financial industry that measures the difference between the interest earned on loans and investments and the interest paid out on deposits and other borrowings. It is a commonly used metric to help determine the profitability of a bank or other financial institution.

NIM is calculated by subtracting the interest expenses from the interest income and dividing the result by the total amount of interest earning assets held by the institution. The resulting percentage shows how much profit is made on each dollar of assets.

In general, a higher NIM indicates that an institution has been able to lend money at a higher rate than it pays for deposits or other funding sources, leading to higher profits. A lower NIM, on the other hand, suggests that the institution may be paying more in interest than it is receiving.

NIM is often used by investors and analysts to evaluate and compare the financial performance of different banks and other financial institutions. It is also used by regulators and policymakers to monitor the health of the financial system and identify potential risks.

While NIM is an important metric for financial institutions, it should be noted that it is not the only factor that determines profitability. Other factors such as expenses, loan losses, and non-interest income also play a role in determining a bank's overall profitability.
