Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter

Banks generate revenue by charging interest on loans and charging fees to administer, maintain and process loans, transactions and bank accounts. They pay interest to the depositors and wholesale funding markets that provide them with funds to lend. To achieve a profit margin, banks aim to earn interest and fee revenue that is greater than the interest they pay.

Business loans

Businesses borrow from banks to finance their investments and operations. Business loans are flexible. They can be secured or unsecured, with a fixed or variable interest rate, and can be used for a variety of purposes. This can range from long-term loans for large investments, such as new property and equipment, to short-term operating loans for expenses such as inventory purchases or payroll.
