Understanding Bank Performance
Eight-Part Virtual Series (April-May)

Conference/Seminar/School Gail Queen

The VBA is excited to partner with the Washington Bankers Association to offer a new virtual series, Understanding Bank Performance.

Participants will learn how to assess and analyze a bank’s financial performance by working with data from real institutions. Using financial statements from one sample financial institution, along with statements from their own sample banks, participants will become familiar with the ins and outs of balance sheets and income statements and learn how to apply key performance metrics to the data presented in these documents.
