The difference between what the Bank pays for deposits and the interest it charges for loans, i.e. the net interest income, is its main source of revenue.
Recurring revenues, which are the sum of net interest income and income from fees and commissions, allow the Bank to cover its overheads, including salaries and payment of taxes and dividends. The role of banks thus has a positive impact on society. It also requires the maintenance of levels of capital that are sufficient to keep the Entity solvent.
