A major topic of conversation at the September 2018 Performance Analytics workshops was the need for financial institutions to focus on deposit retention. Loan growth (9.9 percent) continues to outpace deposit growth (5.8 percent) as loan-to-deposit ratios increase. The average loan-to-deposit ratio is now in the mid-80s (a number of financial institutions exceed 100 percent).

Anticipated loan demand is finally increasing after steadily falling since the financial crisis of 2007/2008.  Raddon’s 2017 national research indicates 28% of consumers anticipate opening a loan in the next 12 months.  This demand for loans has increased significantly from a low of 19% in 2015 and just 21% last year.  Home equities are among the products showing increasing demand.  The increase in demand is being fueled by rising home prices (up by one-third since 2009) and lower inventories of houses on the market.
