The significance of Financial Rations and its analysis can not be over emphasized.

It can be explained as the techniques of reducing aggregate financial data into meaningful quotients, which are compared to other existing financial data.

This is because, the issue of credit extension is not an easy task and is of technical in nature, one of the criteria for a successful lending is the review of the Financial Statements of a borrowing firm. This is actually carried out with help of ratio analysis.
Furthermore, the analysis of such financial statements will enable a lending banker to access the viability of such borrowing firm, in the area of liquidity, profitability as well as the nature of its funding.
Conclusively, having indept knowledge of the above concepts mentioned above through Financial Ration analysis, the lending banker will now be able to take appropriate decision on either to accept or reject a given loan proposal or request.
