How Do Banks Make Money?

Banks make money basically by borrowing from depositors and lending to borrowers. The spread between the interest rate that they credit depositors and the rate that they charge borrowers for new loans is known as the spread or net interest income—and this is the primary source of banks’ revenues. Banks also make money from charging fees or commissions for various services, such as account servicing, brokerage, wealth management, financial advising, and investment banking.
