CFA Chicago and Wall St. Training

Bank Industry Primer & Basic Bank Financial Modeling
(Intermediate Proficiency Using Excel, Solid Grasp of Basic Accounting Fundamentals, and an Understanding of Basic Valuation Techniques Required)

The standard financial analysis and valuation methodologies that apply to most companies do not apply to industries that "use money to make money." Balance Sheet based companies, such as banks, play by different rules and methodologies based on the unique nature of their businesses. First, start off with an interactive primer on commercial banks and their financial statement terminology and drivers. Learn how to analyze various bank-specific jargon such as net vs. gross charge-offs vs. provisions, etc. Crystallize the impact of Interest Rates, importance of term structure and credit spreads and implications on a bank's profitability. Examine best practices in calculating net interest income via average asset and liability balances on the income statement. Dive into an analysis of Balance Sheet assets & liabilities and articulate the drivers of EPS growth.

Then, build a basic, streamlined bank financial model that builds upon the bank terminology in our primer. Before diving deep into the complex nuances of our Advanced Bank Financial Model, really solidify your understanding of developing the logic in loan losses and provisions and its impact on the rest of the larger bank financial statements. Perform quick back-of-the-envelope calculations for key Balance Sheet items such as Interest Earning Assets and Interest Bearing Liabilities, which yield Net Interest Income. Estimate and calculate capital adequacy ratios to wrap up your summary simplified basic bank model.
