What is the gross yield on earning assets?

The gross yield on earning assets is a bank performance metric which estimates the yield that a bank is earning in interest on its investments. By comparing interest and investment earnings to earning assets, you can estimate the gross yield. Netting out interest and investment expenses shows the closely related net interest margin.

The gross yield on earning assets can only be compared relatively – either to the bank itself in similar prevailing regimes, or to the bank's peers. A higher number is generally better, but note that a higher yield likely means a bank is taking on some sort of risk, or higher duration.

Gross Yield on Earning Assets Formula

The gross yield on earning assets formula is:

gross\ yield\ on\ earning\ assets=\frac{interest\ income}{average\ earning\ assets}


  • Interest Income – Interest and investment income earned by the bank.
  • Earning Assets – The average of the current and previous period's earning assets. (Make sure you match the period with the income and expenses)
