ROA (return-on-assets) of the banking sector in Belgium 2000-2018

The profitability of Belgian banks remained stable between 2014 and 2018, reaching a level that was on par with profits from before the financial crisis. This according to a ratio that shows the average per-euro profit banks earned on their assets. This ROA ratio is calculated by dividing a company's net, after-tax income by total assets. Financial analysts frequently apply this is a key financial indicator, as banks rely on loans and money flow as their business model. As such, it is said that even a profit of one percent could be a significant number for a bank.
