Efficiency Ratio

In banking, a ratio of expenses to revenue. For example, if a bank spends $10 million and makes $15 million in a given month, its efficiency ratio is .67. Banks desire a lower efficiency ratio because this means that the bank is making considerably more than it is spending and is therefore on sound fiscal footing. One way to conceptualize the efficiency ratio is to say it is the measure of what a bank must spend in order to make one dollar. In the above example, the bank must spend 67 cents.
