CAMELS Rating
A rating system that measures of the relative soundness of a bank.
    
The components of the CAMELS rating- stand for Capital, Assets, Management, Earnings, Liquidity and Sensitivity to Market risk. They are calculated on a 1-5 scale, and are used by bank supervisory agencies to evaluate bank condition. A rating of 1 is given to banks with the strongest performance ratings, while banks given a CAMELS rating of 4 or 5 are placed on the Watch List of banks in need of supervisory attention. Individual CAMELS ratings are disclosed to bank management, though not to the general public.
    
Bank supervisory authorities assign each bank a score on a scale of one (best) to five (worst) for each factor. If a bank has an average score less than two it is considered to be a High-quality Institution, while banks with scores greater than three are considered to be less-than-satisfactory establishments. The system helps the supervisory authority identify banks that are in need of attention.
