SWOT ANALYSIS OF THE NATIONAL BANK LIMITED:

SWOT analysis is the detailed study of an organization’s exposure and potential in the perspective of its strength, weakness, opportunity and threat. This facilitates the organization to make their existing line of their performance and also foresee the future to improve their performance in comparison to their competitors. As though this tool, an organization can also study its current position, it can also be considered as an important tool for making changes in the strategic management of the organization.

  Strengths: 

National Bank Limited has already established a favorable reputation in the Banking industry of the country. It is one of leading private sector commercial banks in Bangladesh. The bank has shown a tremendous growth in the profit and deposits sector.

National Bank Limited has already achieved a high growth rate accompanied by an impressive profit growth rate in 2010. The number of deposits and the loans and advances are also increasing rapidly.

National Bank has the reputation of being the provider of good quality services to its potential customer.

  Weaknesses:

The main important thing is that the bank has no clear mission statement and strategic plan. The banks not have any long term strategies of whether it wants to focus on retail banking or become a corporate bank. The path of the future should be determined now with a strong feasible strategic plan.

The bank failed to provide a strong quality recruitment policy in the lower and some mid level position. As a result the services of the bank seem to be dues in the present days.

The poor service quality has become a major problem for a bank. The quality of the service at National Bank Limited is not higher than the Dhaka Bank, Prime Bank or Dutch Bangla Bank etc. So the bank has to complete with the multinational bank located here.

Some of the job in National Bank has no growth or advisement path. So lack of motivation exists in persons filling those positions. This is a weakness of NBL that it is having a group of unsatisfied employees.

In terms of promotional sector, NBL has need to give more emphasize on that. They have to follow aggressive marketing campaign.

NBL remittance payment system is very poor, to pay a customer bank consume huge time ( in some cases it takes a day to pay), because their IT investment is very poor.

 Opportunities:

In order to reduce the business risk, NBL has to expand their business portfolio. The management can consider options of starting merchant banking or diversify into leasing and insurance sector.

NBL has a huge scope to increase their customer service quality. By investing more in IT sector and recruit dynamic people who can ensure maximum customer benefit.

The percentage of classified loans of NBL is about 5% and in Babu Bazar Branch it is less than 1%. So here bank has a huge scope to maximize their performance.

A large number of private banks coming into the market in the recent time in this competitive environment NBL must expand their product line to enhance its sustainable competitive advantage in that product line, they can introduce debt card and ATM Booth system for their potential customer.

In addition of those things, NBL can introduce special corporate scheme for the corporate customer or officer who have an income level from higher to lower. At the same time, they can introduce scheme or loan for various service holders and the scheme should be separate according to the professions such as engineers, lawyers, doctors etc.

Threats:

All sustain multinational banks and upcoming foreign private banks possess enormous threats to NBL. If that happen the intensity of competition will rise further and banks will have to develop strategies to compete against on slough of foreign banks.

The default risks of all terms of loan have to be minimizing in order to sustain in the financial market, because default risk leads the organization towards to bankrupt. NBL has to remain vigilant about this problem so that proactive strategies are leading them to minimize this problem if not eliminated.

The low compensation package of the employees from mid level to lower level position is another threat of the NBL. As a result, good quality from employees leaves the organization and its effects the organization as a whole.

  Loan amount

Loan amount should be fixed such a way that it will require the needs of the customer or his business. Proper accommodation of a customer may involve lending more or less money than asked for over a longer or shorter period than requested.

  Loan terms and conditions

Loan terms and conditions should be framed in such a way that they will protect bank’s interest as well as customer’s purpose. The loan agreement must be structured in such a way that the borrower may be able to service the loan and be able to comfortably repay the loan as per schedule

 CREDIT ANALYSIS

Credit analysis is the method by which one calculates the creditworthiness of a business or organization. The audited financial statements of a large company might be analyzed when it issues or has issued bonds. Or, a bank may analyze the financial statements of a small business before making or renewing a commercial loan. The term refers to either case, whether the business is large or small.

 Credit analysis involves a wide variety of financial analysis techniques, including ratio and trend analysis as well as the creation of projections and a detailed analysis of cash flows. Credit analysis also includes an examination of collateral and other sources of repayment as well as credit history and management ability. Analysts attempt to predict the probability that a borrower will default on its debts, and also the severity of losses in the event of default. Credit spreads–the difference in interest rates between theoretically “risk-free” investments such as U.S. treasuries or LIBOR and investments that carry some risk of default–reflect credit analysis by financial market participants.

 Before approving a commercial loan, a bank will look at all of these factors with the primary emphasis being the cash flow of the borrower. A typical measurement of repayment ability is the debt service coverage ratio. A credit analyst at a bank will measure the cash generated by a business (before interest expense and excluding depreciation and any other non-cash or extraordinary expenses). The debt service coverage ratio divides this cash flow amount by the debt service (both principal and interest payments on all loans) that will be required to be met.

 Usually to analysis the credit the analyst used two types of technique. Those are —

Time-Series Technique.  And

 Cross-Sectional Technique.

Those techniques are explained below—

Time-Series Technique: The analysis of the performance of a given entity over a period of time is called the time-series techniques.

 Cross-Section Technique: Analyzing the performance of two or more different entities at a given or certain point if time. That means cross-section techniques compare the performance of two or more entities, companies or economy with in one sector.

 Cross-Section Techniques can be classified into two ways—

a) Common-Size Techniques: Common-Size Techniques express the component of balance sheet as a percentage of total assets.

b) Financial Ratio Analysis: Financial Ratio Analysis expresses the component of the income statement as a percentage of total revenue.

In my report I have used both the Time-Series and Cross-Section Techniques to analyze the data.

As the topic of my report is “Credit Analysis of NBL” I have analyzed the credit of NBL from different point of view. I have used five years data (from 2006 to 2010) of NBL for analysis.

      TIME-SERIES TECHNIQUE: In case of Time-Series Technique I have focused on different topics. Those are listed below:

a) Loans and Advances (Taka in million).

b) Advance Deposit Ratio.

c) Concentration of Loans and Advances to Mitigate Risk.

d) Non Performing Loan.

e) Industry wise Loans and Advances (Including Bills Purchased and Discounted).

f) Maturity Grouping of Loans and Advances Including Bills Purchased & Discounted Repayable.

g) Classified, Unclassified, Doubtful and Bad Loans & Advances.

 FINDINGS

We can see from this report that the classified loan of the bank is decreasing, it means that efficiency of management is improving.

  1. The realization of classified loan is increasing, because of good administration.
  2. This bank is trying to improve their credit product to satisfy the consumer.
  3. National Bank Ltd is trying to improve and straightening their credit policy.
  4. National Bank tries to follow all rules and regulation given by Bangladesh Bank when they sanction any loan.
  5. Trying to increase of credit in small and medium entrepreneur.
  6. According to the ratio analysis, we can see that the amount of loans and advances are increasing year by year which is good sign for the bank. During the year of 2006 the Loans and Advances of NBL was Tk 32,709.68 millions and in the year 2010 the loans and advances of NBL increases upto Tk 92,003.56 millions. But they should careful about the bad debts.
  7. The increasing percentage of advance deposit ratio is also positive. It increases 81.06%-89.78% in the year 2006-2010.

 It is also very difficult for me to give any recommendation with my little working experience but I have tried as my best to give best recommendation above shortcomings:

 NBL should give more freedom to their branches for taking decisions and their head office should take decision more quickly.

  NBL should build separate loan recovery division if it happened then their classified loan amount will reduce and they can invest more. .

  NBL should go through the online banking as early as possible for better service to the customer

  •  All branches should properly maintain all documents on daily basis.
  •  It is required to develop some effective motivational programs.
  •  Interest rate should be increased.
  •  Modern technology should be used to maintain documentation. Like computer, software for any calculation. If they store their documents in a computer, they can easily search it & it takes only few seconds.
  •  They should try to minimize their risk level beside their investment.

I do believe that the suggestions and recommendations mentioned below will obviously increase the efficiency of National Bank Ltd. in analyzing credit schemes.

 CONCLUSION

I acknowledged different banking functions and day to bay banking operation on my way to complete this internship.

From my starting day to up to date my practical implementation of customer dealing procedure during the whole period practical orientation in NBL at Babubazar branch, I have to try my best to reach a firm and concrete a conclusion very confident way. In this report I have explained my best in respect of my real life experience gathered from different departments. I believe that my realization will be in harmony with most of the banking thinkers

Now a day banking sector is more competitive. To achieve a proper reward about performance, it is essential to satisfy its customer by providing them different valuable and dynamic services.
