 Introduction

My internship report is based on Bank. At first we need to know what is bank. “A bank is any business offering deposits subject to withdrawal on demand and making loans of a commercial or business nature”. There are different types of banks like commercial bank, investment bank, international bank etc.  My chosen bank is commercial bank. It is well reputed private bank in Bangladesh named “First Security Islami Bank Limited” (FSIBL). First Security Islami Bank Limited (FSIBL) was incorporated in Bangladesh on 29 August 1999 as a banking company under Companies Act 1994 to carry on banking business. It obtained permission from Bangladesh Bank (BB) on 22 September 1999 to commence its business. Banks provides the opportunity to its clients to deposit and lending money also at the same time attractive services are ensured as per the client’s needs wants & demand with the changing environment and competition. Activities of a bank permits to open & close accounts, issuing cheque books, remit funds, issue bank drafts, pay order, mail transfer, demand draft, receive cheque for clearing, FDR (Fixed Deposit Receipts)DBS(Double benefit Scheme) opening with attractive interest rate etc. It also includes the process of communicating, summarizing and explaining the economic events of a bank within a specific period of time.

Background of the report

Banking sector of the world is contributed in the present global economy. To establish a strong banking sector it is required to have good study in all operations of banking. For that we should do all of these operations step by step & obviously we must have to know about banking activities & transaction procedure of banking sector. Not only this, but also evaluation of performance to compare with other financial institution & taking corrective action has become compulsory for any bank. So, it is also applicable for FSBL to run with strong competition & to take proper action. I had been placed atMohakhali branch of First Security Islami Bank Limited in order to do my internship. The report is based on “E-Banking System”. I have been preparing this report under the guidance of Sonjoy Maitra, Assistant Professor of Dhaka International University.

 Significance of the Report

This Internship Report is an important partial requirement of four year BBA graduation program. This is because knowledge and learning become perfect when it is associated with theory and practice. By this Internship program students can establish contacts and networking. Contacts may help to get a job in practical life. That is, students can train and prepare themselves for the job market. A poor country like Bangladesh has an overwhelming number of unemployed educated graduates. As they have no internship experience they have not been able to gain normal professional experience of establish networking system, which is important in getting a job. Therefore, it is obvious that the significance of Internship is clearly justified as the crucial requirement of four year BBA graduation.

SWOT Analysis of FSIBL Ltd.

 SWOT Analysis of FSIBL Ltd.

SWOT analysis is the detailed study of an organization’s exposure and potential in perspective of its strengths, weakness, opportunity and threat. This facilitates the organization to make their existing line of 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.

Organisations often think the way to measure customer satisfaction is to examine the number of customer complaints. The problems with this method is that it is reactive, it only responds (if at all) after the event and it does not really measure satisfaction only dissatisfaction. Monitoring complaint levels does not really tell if the customers are any more or less satisfied with the product or service.

In the competitive arena of marketing era SWOT analysis is a must based on Product, Price, marketing policies of a financial institute like private bank. From the SWOT analysis we can figure out ongoing scenario of the bank.

Strengths

Bank reputation

FSIBL ltd. has already established a favorable reputation in the banking industry of the country. Within a period of 9 years, bank has already established a firm footing in the banking sector having tremendous growth in the profits and deposits. All these have leaded them to earn a reputation in the banking field.

 Islamic banking Concept

As we are an Islamic Nation our major deals want to follow the Islamic rules and regulations. FSIBL always follows the Islamic rules. And it always helps the bank to attract the new and existing clients.

 Sponsors

FSIBL ltd. was founded by a group of well-known entrepreneurs of the country having sufficient financial strength. The sponsor directors belong to prominent resources persons of the country. The Board of Directors headed by its Chairman Alhaj Md. SaifulAlam. Therefore, FSIBL has a strong financial strength and it built upon a strong foundation.

 Top Management

The top management of the bank is also major strength. The top management officials have all worked in reputed banks and they are very experienced in the banking sector, skills, expertise will continue to contribute towards further expansion of the bank. At FSIBL Ltd. the top management is the driving force and the planning of the organization where policies are crafted and often cascaded down.

 Facilities and equipment

FSIBL ltd. has adequate physical facilities and equipments to provide better services to the customers. The bank has computerized and online banking operations under a software. Counting machines in the teller counters have been installed for speedy service and the cash counters. Computerized statements for the customers as well as for the internal use of the banks are also available.

Modern branches

This creates a positive image in the minds of the potential customers and many people get attracted to the bank. This is also an indirect marketing campaign for the bank for attracting customers. All branches of the bank are impressive and are compatible to foreign banks.

Team work at mid level and lower level

At FSIBL Ltd. have mid level and lower level management, there are often team works. Many jobs are performed in groups of two or three in order to reduce the burden of the workload and enhance the process of completion of the job. People are eager to help each other and people in general are devoted to work.

Interactive corporate culture

FSIBL ltd. has an interactive corporate culture. Unlike other local organization, its work environment is very friendly, interactive and informal. There are no hidden barriers or boundaries while interacting among the superior or the subordinate. The environment is also lively and since the nature of the banking job itself is monotonous and routine, FSIBL. is likely work environment boosts up the spirit and motivation of the employees.

Weaknesses

Advertising and promotion of their new product

This is a major set back for FSIBL Ltd. and one of its weakest areas. Banks advertising and promotional activities are satisfactory but it SME loan is not advertised well. It does not expose its SME product to general public and are not in lime light. FSIBL does not have any sign or any advertisement for SME loan in the city. As a result people are not aware of the existence of this bank.

 Low reward package

The reward package for the entry and the mid level management is considerably low. The compensation package for FSIBL. Entry level positions are even lower than the modern banks. Under the existing low payment structure, it will be very difficult to attract and retain higher educated employees in FSIBL.

 Time wastage                                    

More time taking for approving loan that discourage the customer for taking loan.

 Lack of On- line Service

All branches aren’t on-line Service. So This is a major set back for FSIBL Ltd. and one of its weakest areas.

Opportunities

Diversification

FSIBL can pursue a diversification strategy in expanding its current line of business. The management can consider options of starting merchant banking or diversify in to leasing and insurance. By expanding their business portfolio, FSIBL can reduce their business risk.

 Promotion of new Products

In this competitive environment FSIBL must expand its new product promotion to enhance its sustainable competitive advantage.

 Market share

It’s very important to FSIBL, to increase market share through growth of loan portfolio.

 Other Opportunities

  • Enhanced business development in all product areas and promotion of those products.
  • More experienced & managerial know-how.
  • Countrywide network.
  • Increased New sector loan facilities.
  • Reduced overdue through strong recovery system.

Threats

  • There are many competitors in the marker.
  • The growth rate of competitors in the market.
  • Many of the competitor banks are well equipped & also providing better online services.
  • Regulatory requirements.
  • Govt. pressures to reduce interest rate.
  • Changing customers needs.

Finding

  All activities of FSIBL are conducted under a profit/loss based system according to Islamic Shariah to get the nation rid of Usury.

  They believe in providing dedicated services to the clients imbued with Islamic spiritof brotherhood, peace and fraternity.

  The Bank upholds the Islamic values of establishment of a justified economic systemthrough social emancipation and equitable distribution of wealth.

  The communication of Fast Security Islami Bank is open and free. Fast Security Islami Bank uses notice board, magazine, newsletters, the suggestion programs etc as a method of communication.

  Legal advisers take so much time before giving their legal opinion.

  There is positive relationship between performance appraisal and employee commitment to the organization.

  Managers do not provide any brief/ discussion or guide to communicate the performance appraisal system of the bank.

  Shortage of skilled man power in the branch.

Conclusion

First Security Islami bank Ltd. has established goodwill through innovative products and services. This report had shown that part of activities of FSIBL. For the future planning and the successful operation for achieving its prime goal in this current competitive environment this report can be a helpful guideline.So it is not an easy job to find out the drawbacks of this branch. I would rather feel like producing my personal opinion about the practices in Mohakhali Branch.

I have tried to present the strategy of First Security Islami Bank Limited and its products and services, and some suggestion for the improvement of First Security Bank Limited throughout the report. The required data about the interview procedure are collected from face to face conversation with the manager and employee of First Security Bank Limited.

Overall, the bank must make a positive attempt to be more outward looking in their goals and aware of what is happening. They must also emphasize on the domestic scenario more closely and analyze any certain trends and strategies of their competitors. The bank must accept any failures and think of them as an objective to pursue future goals instead of blaming such failures on other factors.
Recommendation

  Banking is a service-oriented marketing. Its business profit depends on its service quality.That’s why the authority always should be aware about their service quality.

  The management of FSIBL may invest more in interest sensitive asset by taking deposit of short term and lend for long to reduce gap between its interest rate sensitive assets and interest rate sensitive liabilities.

  Proper communication regarding the products and services of the bank should be enforced. As a result confusions will be minimized and customer satisfaction will enhance.

  Focus On Relationship Strategies: The bank should focus more on existing customers in order to build strong and loyal relationship with them as most satisfied customers recommends the bank to friends and relatives. Thus the power of relationship will foster positive Word of Mouth Communication and will attract new customers at a lower cost.

  More products of varied interests should be introduced for the diversified client group.

  The bank should take new marketing strategy which will    responds and take effective steps to increase faith on them.

  It should improve in file management system to faster the dealings with the client’s proposal.

   Interest rate should be made more moderate.

  The HRD should look into the matter that the branches are well staffed with the right people in the right position.

Complaint Management: FSIBL should actively manage the complaints of various customers and encourage customers to give feedback about the services. The management should collect, document complaints, use that information to identify dissatisfied customers, correct individual problems where possible and identify common service failure points. Research showed that this strategy will radically improve the overall customer satisfaction.
