Abstract: Linear discriminant analysis (LDA) has found extensive application in predicting bankruptcy. In this article, we elucidate a novel modelling approach for LDA that can also aid in gaining useful insights regarding the relative importance and ranking of factors in the banking industry. The model steers away from the traditional computation of the variance/covariance matrix and employs an ensemble technique to assign records to classes. The efficacy of our model is tested using two datasets. Specifically, a large dataset from the banking industry was partitioned into the testing and training datasets, and an accuracy of 87.9% was achieved JEL Codes: C38, G33
