Gap Ratio

Gap Ratio

The ratio of a company's rate sensitive assets to its rate sensitive liabilities. Rate sensitive assets and liabilities are those likely to increase or decrease substantially in value due to changes in interest rates. A gap ratio over 1 indicates that there are more rate sensitive assets than liabilities, meaning revenue or profits will likely increase as interest rates rise. A ratio below 1 indicates the opposite. The gap ratio is most commonly used in banking.
