ROE (return on equity) estimate of selected banks in the Netherlands 2015-2019

The return on equity of the six largest Dutch banks was much lower in early 2019 than it was in 2018, meaning they were making less profit than before. The ROE or return on equity measures is one of several measures to look into bank profitability, in this case measuring income that returned as shareholder equity. Normally, ROEs of around 15 to 20 percent are considered good returns. That Dutch banks do not reach these numbers is probably due to low-interest rates, as a consequence of the monetary policy of the European Central Bank (ECB). For several years, this body maintained artificially low-interest rates in an effort to increase inflation on the European continent.
