Financial management is crucial for planning bank’s asset and liabilities while taking
consideration for multiple objectives. The objective of this study is to develop a Goal

Malaysia. Six goals from the financial statements namely total asset, total liability, total equity, profit, earning and optimum management items are investigated for the period from 2011 to 2015. The results of this study indicate that all six goals are fully achieved by using the GP model.
