The banking system of Bangladesh is facing crucial moment. In this context, the objective of the study is to analyze the performance evaluation of NBL and BRAC bank in Bangladesh. Data of this study come from secondary sources such as annual reports, websites, articles, newspapers and company profiles. Data has been analyzed through growth percentage, standard deviation, trend equation, square of correlation coefficient and correlation matrix for the purpose of evaluating the performance of NBL and BRAC banks of Bangladesh. Selected parameters of performance analyses are branches, employees, deposits, loans & advances and net income. It is observed that that the selected banks are able to attain growth. However, selected performance parameters of BRAC bank are stable compared to the NBL bank. Results of trend values of selected parameters are positive for the both banks except the net income trend value of NBL which is found negative. The square of correlation coefficient of branches, employees, deposits, loans & advances, net income is more than 0.80 except the NBL which indicates very low r2 i.e. 0.14. The results indicate that the prospect of BRAC bank is brighter than the NBL. It also thought that the prospect of private commercial banks in Bangladesh is mixed with bright and gloom pictures. This should be cautioned by the policymakers of Bangladesh in order to maintain stability of the banking sector of Bangladesh.
