What is the efficiency ratio?

A bank's efficiency ratio is an at-a-glance measure which shows you how a bank is converting its non-investment costs into total revenue. Ideally, this number should be as low as possible, which would mean a bank is generating much more in revenue than its non-investment input costs.

Efficiency Ratio Formula

The efficiency ratio formula is:

efficiency\ ratio=\frac{non-interest\ expenses}{revenue}


  • Non-Interest Income – Non-interest or non-investment revenue reported by the bank.
  • Revenue – The top-line revenue of the company, or more accurately use the revenue net of any provisions for loan losses.
