With deteriorating interest margins and lower deposit growth, can banks develop value for shareholders?

Shareholder value can be increased only by investing in opportunities whose expected returns exceed long-term funding costs, or "costs of capital." The longer these excess returns can be sustained, the more they add to shareholder value. Investments returning only the costs of capital, and no more, neither add to nor detract from shareholder value.
