2.04% 3.96%

The Texas Ratio compares the bank’s non performing assets (non-performing loans and real estate owned) with its tangible common equity and its loan loss reserves. A lower Texas ratio indicates better coverage of problem loans. The closer the Texas Ratio is to 1-to-1 or 100%, the less capital and reserves a bank has to absorb its loan losses.

As of December 31, 2024, Washington Federal Bank had $45,276,000 in non-current loans and $6,820,000 in owned real estate. To cover these potential losses it had $2,379,606,000 in equity and $179,320,000 in loans loss reserves. That gives it a Texas Ratio of 2.04%.

Washington Federal Bank Balance Sheet Analysis

As of December 31, 2023, Washington Federal Bank had assets of $22,637,277,000, loans of $17,587,254,000, and deposits of $16,172,584,000. Long-term increases in deposits shows a bank's ability to raise funds to grow its loans and assets. Loan and asset growth may rise or fall depending on a bank's strategy for growth. Sharp rises and falls in assets, deposits, and loans can be problematic, indicating a loosening of lending standards, or financial distress leading to reduced lending. A big change in these figured can also be from a bank acquisition or merger.
