NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases its KBRA Clips: Just a Bank Minute: LDRs. In this short video update, KBRA Senior Director Ethan Heisler discusses the potential causal relationship between a bank’s loan-to-deposit ratio (LDR) and the book cost of its time deposits. In other words, banks with high LDRs pay more for deposits than banks with low LDRs, and that this effect is greater when they are in a state with a high proportion of banks operating with LDRs over 90%.
The clip also includes a comparison of regional and community banks to the top 25 banks, by LDR, and how the gap between large and small banks by this measure has been widening since 2013. With regional and community banks averaging 89% and the top 25 banks averaging 70%, the difference between the two groups is the widest it has been in more than 30 years. The chart deck includes a screen for banks with LDRs over 90% and 95%, by U.S. state, and a scatter plot of LDRs and cost of time deposits for 5,250 banks as of Q1 2019.
