Everyone is taking about inflations. That’s great. You may want to read this article to understand how banks make money.

“Banks categorize their revenue into two broad areas based on how it is generated – net interest income and non-interest income.

Net interest income is generated from what is known as the ‘spread’. The spread is simply the difference between the interest a bank earns on loans extended to customers and the interest paid to depositors and other creditors for the use of their money. Fifty-two per cent of bank revenue earned is net interest income.”

Did you read that? 52% of bank revenue earned is net interest income. As rates increase due to inflation, banks will take the money we have in our saving/chequing accounts which is earning us no interest, and lend it out for 3,4,5%. Imaging that, if the bank lends $1,000,000, it’ll make $30,000.

According to this article, 410,000 people took out new home loans in the second quarter, and the average amount hit record $355,000.

Let’s do the math: 410000x355000= $145,550,000,000. Let’s assume rates do increase and the spread is now at 2%. $145,550,000,000 X 0.02 = $2,911,000,000

That’s a ton of money!
