Discover the tool that bridges the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical banking skills.

In 2021, this banker closed an astonishing 73% of the deals within his team, making him the top-performing banker in the region. An achievement like this isn’t reached overnight. In fact, just a few years prior, he was mired in the often overwhelming task of financial analysis, spending upwards of 60% of his working hours wading through a sea of data.

Financial analysis is an intimidating yet crucial aspect of finance. As Mary Callahan Erdoes, CEO of J.P. Morgan Asset & Wealth Management, rightly said: ‘Our job is to do two things: to help clients see through the noise to the trend, and to help them be patient investors.’

Like many people in this field, bankers initially try to tackle the complexity of financial analysis by absorbing more information. However, this approach led to working harder, not smarter. This realization sparked a question about how banker can become more efficient at financial analysis.

The answer wasn’t found in traditional finance books; instead, it was rooted in the science of humans’ minds. The human brain struggles to process more than 5 to 7 data points simultaneously; it craves simplicity. This idea even resonates with Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, who said: ‘I don’t look to jump over 7-foot bars, I look around for 1-foot bars that I can step over.’

This understanding led to the creation of the Five-Step Financial Analysis Framework. At Business Talent Academy, the purpose is to guide bankers to focus on the five key metrics that yield the most insights about a business, then show them how to delve deeper based on those findings.

The results have been extraordinary. By implementing this framework, some bankers can halve their analysis time and triple their approval rate. One VP at the bank even praised a credit application written using the Five-Step Financial Analysis Framework, saying: ‘I am sharing the great comment I received from our director of credit. This well-written credit application can serve as a reference/coaching example to be shared with your teams.’

This was the ultimate consecration, when people start using the framework as a reference and a model to be taught to their team. Some bankers admitted that Business Talent Academy has the best financial analysis framework they’ve ever seen.

Every banker should take the next step to boost their banking career. Discover more about the Five-Step Financial Analysis Framework by signing up for this free workshop on Business Talent Academy.
