  • It is a standardized method which allows the assessment of the quality of banks according to standard criteria providing a meaningful rating.
  • Each element is assigned a numerical rating based on five key components:1Strong performance, sound management, no cause for supervisory concern2Fundamentally sound, compliance with regulations, stable, limited supervisory needs3Weaknesses in one or more components, unsatisfactory practices, weak performance but limited concern for failure4Serious financial and managerial deficiencies and unsound practices. Need close supervision and remedial action5Extremely unsafe practices and conditions, deficiencies beyond management control. Failure is highly probable and outside financial assistance needed
  • Banks with a composite rating of “1” are sound in all aspects, Banks with a composite rating of 2 are fundamentally sound; Banks rated “3” generally have weaknesses in one or more component areas that if not corrected within a reasonable time frame could result in significant solvency or liquidity concerns. Banks rated “4” indicate serious unsafe and unsound practices and serious financial or managerial deficiencies that result in unsatisfactory performance. Banks rated “5” exhibit extremely unsafe and unsound practices or conditions, critically deficient performance and their risk management practices are inadequate.
  • (a) Capital Adequacy :Capital adequacy is measured by the ratio of capital to risk-weighted assets (CRAR). A sound capital base strengthens confidence of depositors (b) Asset Quality : One of the indicators for asset quality is the ratio of non-performing loans to total loans (GNPA). The gross non-performing loans to gross advances ratio is more indicative of the quality of credit decisions made by bankers. Higher GNPA is indicative of poor credit decision-making.(c) Management : The ratio of non-interest expenditures to total assets (MGNT) can be one of the measures to assess the working of the management. . This variable, which includes a variety of expenses, such as payroll, workers compensation and training investment, reflects the management policy stance. (d) Earnings : It can be measured as the the return on asset ratio. (e) Liquidity : Cash maintained by the banks and balances with central bank, to total asset ratio (LQD) is an indicator of bank's liquidity. In general, banks with a larger volume of liquid assets are perceived safe, since these assets would allow banks to meet unexpected withdrawals. (f) Systems and Control

    1. 1. CAMELS RATING<br />
    2. 2. WHAT IT IS<br />The CAMELS ratings or Camels rating is a US supervisory rating of the bank's overall condition used to classify the nation’s 8,500 banks.<br /> This rating is based on financial statements of the bank and on-site examination by regulators like the Fed, the OCC and FDIC.<br />
    3. 3. The CAMEL Rating System was adopted by NCUA in October 1987. <br />It is used as an internal tool to measure risk and allocate resources for supervision purposes.<br />The last version of the CAMEL Rating System was published in Letter to Credit Unions No. 161, dated December 1994 .<br />CAMEL BACKGROUND<br />
    4. 4. Purpose of CAMELS ratings<br />The purpose of CAMELS ratings is to determine a bank’s overall condition and to identify its strengths and weaknesses:<br />Financial<br />Operational<br />Managerial<br />
    5. 5. The scale is from 1 to 5 with 1 being strongest and 5 being weakest.<br />Banks with a rating of 1 are considered most stable; banks with a rating of 2 or 3 are considered average, and those with rating of 4 or 5 are considered below average, and are closely monitored to ensure their viability. <br />CAMEL RATINGS <br />
    6. 6. STRONG-indicative of performance that is significantly higher than average.<br /> SATISFACTORY- reflects performance that is average or above.<br /> FAIR- represents performance that is flawed to some degree. <br />MARGINAL- reflects performance that is significantly at below average.<br />UNSATISFACTORY- indicative of performance that is<br /> critically deficient and in need of immediate remedial attention.<br />CAMELS NUMERICAL RATINGS<br />
    7. 7. Each bank is accorded a composite rating that is predicated upon the evaluation of the specific performance dimensions. <br />The composite rating is also based upon a scale of 1 through 5 in ascending order of supervisory concern. <br />The CAMELS rating components have the following weights: <br />Capital Adequacy 20%, <br /> Asset Quality 20%, <br /> Management 25%,<br /> Earnings 15%,<br /> Liquidity 10%<br /> Sensitivity to market risk 10%. <br />CAMELS COMPOSITE RATINGS<br />
