In the past, we talked about the fees, profit and risk profile of why banks should utilize an automated loan sweep (ALS) that moves excess funds to pay down the outstanding balance on revolving line of credit (HERE).

One of the best predictors of bank performance is the level of fee income. The more fee income a bank has, the more likely they have above average performance.
