Abstract: The Banking sector in Bangladesh is one of the fast growing sectors and considered as an integral part of the economy. Hence, monitoring, supervision and continuous performance evaluation of the banking sector is compulsory to ensure the financial stability of the economy since the banking sector is becoming more complex than before. The present study is an attempt to evaluate and compare the performance of the banking sector in Bangladesh. One of the most effective supervisory techniques, CAMELS rating system (basically a quantitative technique) has been used to rank the banks based on their performances. In this study, seventeen conventional private commercial banks have been chosen as samples to meet the purpose of the study. Data for analysis has been collected from the banks¡¯ annual reports for the period (2010-2016). The result from this comparative analysis shows that Eastern Bank has stood at the top position among all the selected banks based on CAMEL rating system. However, the findings from this paper will definitely help the researchers and analysts to understand financial statement analysis in a depth manner and also provide a uniform basis for identifying those institutions requiring special supervisory attention.
