First, look at the trends for your company. Are the ratios improving, staying constant, or getting worse? Discuss the reasons behind these movements or lack thereof.
Second, look at the trends for your competitor and compare them to your company.
Third, find the industry average for each ratio and discuss how both the bank you chose and the competitor you chose compare to the industry average.
The second part of this section will include an overview of your bank.
Where do they do business?
How big are they?
Who are their key employees?
How long have they been in business?
These questions are just a guide to get you started and not meant to be the extent of your overview. The bank's annual report would be a tremendous resource for this portion of the assignment. After the overview, discuss how your ratio analysis and overview would impact the bank's liquidity and its asset liability matching. Finally, discuss what you think are appropriate hedging and risk management techniques for your bank.
I picked JPMorgan Chase as my bank and Morgan Stanley as competitor
