The aim of this study is to analyze the financial performance of 18 deposit banks in the Turkish economy in the period of 2012-2021 with MCDM methods. In the study, 18 deposit banks were evaluated with 10 financial ratios. Criterion weights are determined by the Entropy method from the MCDM methods and the financial performance ranking of the banks related to the EDAS method is obtained. According to the findings, the most important performance criteria are the Fixed Assets/Total Assets financial ratio in 2021. The lowest performance criterion is Interest Income/Total Assets in 2021. It was also determined that the bank with the highest financial performance in the period of 2012-2021 was Deutsche Bank and the lowest performance was Denizbank
