General Banking and Performance Evaluation of Trust Bank Limited
Subject: Banking | Topics:

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Banking System of Bangladesh has gone through three phases of development – Nationalization, Privatization and lastly Financial Sector Reform. Trust Bank Ltd. (TBL, the 3rdgeneration bank) has started its journey as a private commercial bank on 29 November, 1999.

The whole working area of a modern bank can be divided mainly into 5 (five) Sections, such as – 1) General Banking Section, 2) Cash Section, 3) Loans & Advance Section and 4) Foreign Trade Section 5) Credit.  In a nutshell, it can be described as “Asset Wing & Liability Wing”. Our focus & discussion will be concentrated mainly on General Banking Section.

General Banking is the starting point of all the banking operations. It is the department, which provides day-to-day services to the customer. It opens new accounts, remit funds, issue bank drafts & pay orders etc. Provide customers through quick and sincere service are the goal of the general banking department.

 In this study, a fervent appeal has been made to demonstrate and analyze the general banking practice and the subsequent outcome of Trust Bank Ltd. (TBL), which is passing its childhood period to establish an iconic threshold in the banking arena. Despite of being born in the cantonment, the bank is no more recognized as financial dealer of the armed forces; rather in the passing years, it has aimed at reaching the folk of Bangladesh, irrespective of their caste and designation.

This report has been originated as the master degree prerequisite of the BBA program at the Faculty of Business Administration, Adamjee Cantonment College, Bangladesh. Consulting with both the internship supervisor Mr. Md. Abdul Hakim & the organizational supervisor Mr. Shah Jalal Uddin Khan (SVP) and Chief Manager Millennium Corporate Branch, , the VP and Manager, Trust Bank Ltd. (TBL), Millennium Corporate Branch, have selected the subject matter of the report.

The report contains five (5) chapters. The First chapter of the report describes the introductory words of the internship report and the methodology used in the preparation of the report. The Second chapter contains the historical background of TBL and chapter Three explains the various banking products offered by the bank. The fundamental analysis of bank performance of the bank as starts at chapter Four. The concluding chapter bearing number Five contains the findings during the three-month long internship period, recommendations based on the findings and the overall conclusion.

During the composition of report proper care and uninterrupted concentration has been invested. Moreover, containing some unintentional mistake and printing error is not unusual. I do hope all to be considerate in this regard.

CHAPTER – ONE

INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE REPORT:

In the later 19th century, Finance was a part of the Economics. But due to the globalization and more expansion of international trade, Finance place the major role for the economic development. The development of the modern economy would not have been possible without the use of money. A first fundamental characteristic of money is that it is very much like collective goods. It is a parallel relationship between money and Banking. Bank is an important and essential institution for the necessity of the use of money and the protection of the money.

As a BBA student with major in Marketing, Financial institutions are the most appropriate field to gather the experience and among the financial institution Bank is the most prominent place. With a view to supply skilled personals in banking arena, Adamjee Cantonment College has undertaking the Internship training program for the BBA students. As a part of the BBA program I placed in The Trust Bank Limited, Millennium Corporate Branch for having practical exposure in the Bank for three months internship program.

ORIGIN OF THE REPORT: 

This report is submitted after completion of the three months Internship program in the “The Trust Bank Limited” to the Internship supervisor. The program director authorized me to submit the report on “The General Banking System of Trust Bank Limited”. The internship program was started from 16th May and ends up 16th July 2010.

RATIONALE OF THE REPORT:

This report is a part of my academic program. The BBA program having 120 credits in total contains three (3) credit hours on the job internship program. The internship program has been set for three (3) months period. I believe this study will be beside me in future, especially if I get myself involved in banks and other financial institutions. The program has helped me a lot to understand the organizational atmosphere and behavior.

OBJECTIVE OF THE REPORT:

Objective of the study acts as a bridge between the starting point and the goals of the study.

To illustrate the objectives properly, presented into two parts:

General:

The main objective of the study is to obtain a clear idea about the General banking and

Foreign Exchange business of TBL’s banking operation.

Specific:

  • To observe the major outline of General and Foreign business.
  • To observe the foreign correspondents of TBL.
  • To observe the post import financing operations.
  • To analysis the expansion of Foreign Trade business of the TBL.
  • To identify the problems of it’s financing.
  • To problems faced by TBL in general banking and Foreign exchange Business.
  • Suggested remedial measures.

SCOPE OF THE REPORT:

The Trust Bank Limited is one of the new generation banks in Bangladesh. The scope of the study is limited to the one branch of Trust Bank Ltd only. The Report has covered organizational structure; background, functions and the performance of the bank. Since I worked in general banking division so my report covers all the activities of general banking of The Trust Bank Limited. While preparing this report I have taken information of the foreign exchange department and general banking department from employees and I have used both primary and secondary data which was available to me. But some information’s, which are confidential, I ignored in my report.

 METHODOLOGY OF THE REPORT:

a SOURCES OF INFORMATION :

Primary Data: Data has been collected primarily through correspondence with the personnel working in different desks, personnel of the head office and other branches, informal conversation with the clients.

Secondary data: The main source of published data is the auditors’ statements of financial affairs which are basically used internally by the bank. Data has also been collected by going through different circulars issued by the head office and Bangladesh bank during the tenor of the internship.

b DETERMINATION OF TIME HORIZON :

In relation to the general banking and financial performance evolution, I have gone through records, reports and documents used currently by the TBL. For the purpose of study, the horizon of three (4), from 2006 to 2009, has been chosen. Over the four year time period, the data relating to the performance of TBL have been evaluated. The basic source of the data is the auditors report used internally by the bank only.

c METHODS OF COLLECTING DATA :

The internship report has been prepared all the basis of “on the job” experience with Trust Bank limited (TBL), SKB Branch located at 195, Motijheel C/A, Dhaka. In spite of the scarcity of published data, I have tried to make the report informative and handy. The data used in the report have been compiled through different complicated ways- direct questionnaire to executives, continuous search on the ongoing accountants’ machine, and interview with internal auditor and external auditors’ report. Working with the organization for a meager period of three month is the main aspect of acquiring data and information to evaluate the culture, working environment and similar sort of affairs of the organization.

d RELIABILITY OF THE DATA :

The data collected are highly reliable in the sense that all data generated in the report are used exclusively by the TBL. The auditors’ report on the financial statements and the correspondence with different desks generate the reliable information to compose the report successfully

e MODEL USED :  

The performance evaluation of TBL has been conducted based on the trend analysis and ratio analysis.

A) Trend Analysis: In the report trend analysis has been used in order to indicate the changes in the level of progress and growth over the last four years starting from 2006 It would show whether the present growth trend of TBL is excellent, good, satisfactory or bad.

B) Ratio Analysis: In the report, significant analysis has been made through the following ratios –

  • Capital Adequacy Ratio
  • Capital Fund to Deposit Liabilities Ratio
  • Liquid Asset to Deposit Liabilities Ratio
  • Loan to Deposit Liabilities Ratio
  • Earning Asset to Deposit Liabilities Ratio
  • After Tax Return on Average Asset Ratio
  • Net profit to Gross Income
  • After Tax Return on Equity

LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY:

The Present study was not out of limitations. In preparing the Report, I have experienced some acute problems that have, to some extent, affected the presentation of the report.

There are some limitations in my study. I have been faced some problems during the study which I am mentioning them. The time period of this study is very short. I had only three months in my hand to complete this report, which was not enough. So I could not go in depth of the study. Sometimes the officials were busy and were busy and were not able to give me much time.

Some desired information could not be collected due to confidentially of business. Few officers sometime felt disturbed, as they were busy in their job.

Sometime they didn’t want to supervise me out of their official work. Library management and functioning is not satisfactory at many places and much of the time and energy of us are spent in tracing out the books, Journals, reports, etc. there is also the problem that many of our libraries are not able to get copies of old and new

Acts/Rule. As I am newcomer, there is a lack of previous experience in this concern. And many practical matters have been written from my own observation that may vary from person to person.

In such cases extreme caution is exercised both by the issuing and the drawee branch.

CHAPTER – ONE

INTRODUCTION

 BACKGROUND OF THE REPORT:

In the later 19th century, Finance was a part of the Economics. But due to the globalization and more expansion of international trade, Finance place the major role for the economic development. The development of the modern economy would not have been possible without the use of money. A first fundamental characteristic of money is that it is very much like collective goods. It is a parallel relationship between money and Banking. Bank is an important and essential institution for the necessity of the use of money and the protection of the money.

As a BBA student with major in Marketing, Financial institutions are the most appropriate field to gather the experience and among the financial institution Bank is the most prominent place. With a view to supply skilled personals in banking arena, Adamjee Cantonment College has undertaking the Internship training program for the BBA students. As a part of the BBA program I placed in The Trust Bank Limited, Millennium Corporate Branch for having practical exposure in the Bank for three months internship program.

ORIGIN OF THE REPORT: 

This report is submitted after completion of the three months Internship program in the “The Trust Bank Limited” to the Internship supervisor. The program director authorized me to submit the report on “The General Banking System of Trust Bank Limited”. The internship program was started from 16th May and ends up 16th July 2010.

 RATIONALE OF THE REPORT:

This report is a part of my academic program. The BBA program having 120 credits in total contains three (3) credit hours on the job internship program. The internship program has been set for three (3) months period. I believe this study will be beside me in future, especially if I get myself involved in banks and other financial institutions. The program has helped me a lot to understand the organizational atmosphere and behavior.

OBJECTIVE OF THE REPORT:

Objective of the study acts as a bridge between the starting point and the goals of the study.

To illustrate the objectives properly, presented into two parts:

General:

The main objective of the study is to obtain a clear idea about the General banking and

Foreign Exchange business of TBL’s banking operation.

Specific:

  • To observe the major outline of General and Foreign business.
  • To observe the foreign correspondents of TBL.
  • To observe the post import financing operations.
  • To analysis the expansion of Foreign Trade business of the TBL.
  • To identify the problems of it’s financing.
  • To problems faced by TBL in general banking and Foreign exchange Business.
  • Suggested remedial measures.

SCOPE OF THE REPORT:

The Trust Bank Limited is one of the new generation banks in Bangladesh. The scope of the study is limited to the one branch of Trust Bank Ltd only. The Report has covered organizational structure; background, functions and the performance of the bank. Since I worked in general banking division so my report covers all the activities of general banking of The Trust Bank Limited. While preparing this report I have taken information of the foreign exchange department and general banking department from employees and I have used both primary and secondary data which was available to me. But some information’s, which are confidential, I ignored in my report.

 METHODOLOGY OF THE REPORT:

a SOURCES OF INFORMATION :

Primary Data: Data has been collected primarily through correspondence with the personnel working in different desks, personnel of the head office and other branches, informal conversation with the clients.

Secondary data: The main source of published data is the auditors’ statements of financial affairs which are basically used internally by the bank. Data has also been collected by going through different circulars issued by the head office and Bangladesh bank during the tenor of the internship.

b DETERMINATION OF TIME HORIZON :

In relation to the general banking and financial performance evolution, I have gone through records, reports and documents used currently by the TBL. For the purpose of study, the horizon of three (4), from 2006 to 2009, has been chosen. Over the four year time period, the data relating to the performance of TBL have been evaluated. The basic source of the data is the auditors report used internally by the bank only.

c METHODS OF COLLECTING DATA :

The internship report has been prepared all the basis of “on the job” experience with Trust Bank limited (TBL), SKB Branch located at 195, Motijheel C/A, Dhaka. In spite of the scarcity of published data, I have tried to make the report informative and handy. The data used in the report have been compiled through different complicated ways- direct questionnaire to executives, continuous search on the ongoing accountants’ machine, and interview with internal auditor and external auditors’ report. Working with the organization for a meager period of three month is the main aspect of acquiring data and information to evaluate the culture, working environment and similar sort of affairs of the organization.

d RELIABILITY OF THE DATA :

The data collected are highly reliable in the sense that all data generated in the report are used exclusively by the TBL. The auditors’ report on the financial statements and the correspondence with different desks generate the reliable information to compose the report successfully.

e MODEL USED :  

The performance evaluation of TBL has been conducted based on the trend analysis and ratio analysis.

A) Trend Analysis: In the report trend analysis has been used in order to indicate the changes in the level of progress and growth over the last four years starting from 2006 It would show whether the present growth trend of TBL is excellent, good, satisfactory or bad.

B) Ratio Analysis: In the report, significant analysis has been made through the following ratios –

  • Capital Adequacy Ratio
  • Capital Fund to Deposit Liabilities Ratio
  • Liquid Asset to Deposit Liabilities Ratio
  • Loan to Deposit Liabilities Ratio
  • Earning Asset to Deposit Liabilities Ratio
  • After Tax Return on Average Asset Ratio
  • Net profit to Gross Income
  • After Tax Return on Equity

LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY:

The Present study was not out of limitations. In preparing the Report, I have experienced some acute problems that have, to some extent, affected the presentation of the report.

 

There are some limitations in my study. I have been faced some problems during the study which I am mentioning them. The time period of this study is very short. I had only three months in my hand to complete this report, which was not enough. So I could not go in depth of the study. Sometimes the officials were busy and were busy and were not able to give me much time.

Some desired information could not be collected due to confidentially of business. Few officers sometime felt disturbed, as they were busy in their job.

Sometime they didn’t want to supervise me out of their official work. Library management and functioning is not satisfactory at many places and much of the time and energy of us are spent in tracing out the books, Journals, reports, etc. there is also the problem that many of our libraries are not able to get copies of old and new

Acts/Rule. As I am newcomer, there is a lack of previous experience in this concern. And many practical matters have been written from my own observation that may vary from person to person.

This results in less pressure for the workers and acts as a motivational tool for them, which gives them, increased encouragement and inspiration to move up the ladder of success. The profit earned by the bank is used to the welfare activities of the Trust. The economic service of the bank is open to all caste and class of people. The bank is formatting and accomplishing various welfare projects and activities for the socio economic infrastructural development of the country and the active participation to the up gradation of the comparative feeble class of the society, instead of accumulating profit. It has also been linked with many foreign banks to facilitate the foreign currency transfer by the members of armed forces working in the UN and emigrant Bangladeshi.
