ORIGIN OF THE REPORT:
This is an internship report prepared as a requirement for the completion of the BBA Program of Department of Finance, Stamford University Bangladesh. The primary goal of internship is to provide an on-the-job exposure to the student and an opportunity to know how to implement theoretical concepts in real life situations. Students are placed in enterprises, organizations, research institutions and as well as in development projects.
As a requirement of the four-year academic program, after appearing in final exam, department placed me in Dhaka Bank Limited for the purpose of internship attachment under the guidance of respected faculty advisor Sohani Islam, Department of Business Administration. The duration of my organizational attachment was Two months, from May 11, 2009 to July 12, 2009.
Dhaka Bank Limited placed me to their Credit Division under the MD. Jahir Uddin Ferdous, Senior Assistant Vice President, of Credit Operation Unit. Another one months placed me their Operational Division Under the MD. Mahbubur Rahoman, Senior Principal Officer of Operation Division.
Through out my internship period I have got the privilege to gather knowledge about CIB inquiry procedure and credit appraisals of the Bank from the concerned officials of the Dhaka Bank Limited. My supervisor at Dhaka Bank and also of the department encouraged me thus work on the topic entitled “Credit Rating & Capital Preservation of Dhaka Bank Ltd”.
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY:
Bank is a trader of deposit and credit, Basically it earns profit by increasing or maintaining the spread. As credit allocation is a present phenomenon and its repayment is futuristic, uncertainty prevails all the time.
Credit policy of any bank is the prime guide line towards the logic behind its overall credit appraisal process. A credit policy is not a one day invention rather it is the summary of year long innovations and conceptions generated form the vast experience of the bankers.
The credit appraisal process for any bank must be a sequence of logical and interlinked activities. The credit appraisal process is also a generation of year long routine and unavoidable experiences perceived by the bankers. Credit risk grading is perhaps the most significant part of the process because default risk management by means of proper credit approval policy depends significantly on CRG.
Although financial risk management primly credit risk management, now-a-days is getting good response in Bangladesh a compact, fully inclusive, efficient credit policy and credit appraisal process are yet to be introduced.
In this gloomy scenario and dismay a study on efficient credit policy, credit appraisal process, CRG will be a handful to lull the situation to a great extent.
OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY:
My objectives of the study are as follows:
- To assess the credit policy of Dhaka Bank Limited.
- To assess the credit Rating of Dhaka Bank Limited.
- To evaluate the Performance of Dhaka Bank Limited.
- To know about the existing CRG practice of Dhaka Bank Limited.
- To know about the existing offering to the creditors of Dhaka Bank Limited.
- To know about the existing asset quality of Dhaka Bank Limited. And evaluate it.
- To provide an all inclusive list of recommendations for the credit division of Dhaka Bank Limited.
Now I am going to discuss about the data collection, data analysis, and questionnaire design of my report.
Both primary and the secondary data were used to prepare the report. The details of these sources are as below:
Primary data for this report had been collected through the conversation & discussion of different officers. On the job observation of the officers has helped a lot to know information of banking.
The secondary sources of data are:
- Annual Report of Dhaka Bank Limited
- Internal Publications of Dhaka Bank Limited
- The website of Dhaka Bank Limited (www.dhakabankltd.com)
- The website of Bangladesh Bank (www.bangladesh-bank.org)
Hypothesis testing was the main tool of processing. Two tailed t-test were used. Concepts of central tendency, dispersion were used. Statistical diagrams are embedded.
LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY:
Although I received co-operation from the concerned officials, they were not always able to give me much time, as they were busy with their works. Time is an important issue in Report writing. As I have been given a specific deadline for submission, observation and learning all the Banking Operations within 2 months was really tough. Another limitation of this Report is non-availability of the most Recent Data and Information of different activities of Dhaka Bank Limited (DBL) and Bank’s Policy of not disclosing some Data and Information for some reasons, which could be very much useful. Lack of secondary information was another major problem that was faced during the study. The branch office had very little of this information that’s why bulk of it had to be gathered from the head office. Due to lack of experience, there may have been faults in the report though maximum efforts have been given to avoid any kind of mistake. In spite of all these limitations, I have tried to put the best effort as far as was possible.
Other Limitations are as follows:
- Sampling error can be prevalent because of very small observation.
- Decorative responses and vague answers from the respondent of the questionnaire may affect my recommendations.
BANKING HISTORY OF BANGLADESH :
Bangladesh is a developing country. Banking sector plays a pivotal role in the economic development of the country. Banking system of a country can well be said as a barometer of its economic prosperity. Well-developed banking system is indispensable for modern trade and commerce. Now-a-days, banks not only act as custodian of public money but also are indispensable as vital agent for maintenance of sound financial position of a country.
Nationalized Commercial Banks (NCBs) were established in Bangladesh in 1972 through amalgamation of twelve commercial banks that were operating in pre-independent Bangladesh allowing the poor access to fund, reducing capital flight to foreign countries, and increasing domestic investment were some of the basic objective of this nationalization. That means a society with wealth distributed as equitably as possible. But with time difference those banks has changed their policies and strategies, which were not fulfilling the class banking policies of the government. On an evaluation of the activities of commercial banks, it has been observed that the progresses made by the banking industry since nationalization was not impressive. The nationalized banks could not play the due role in the implementation of government programs and policies. Hence, a trend of de-nationalization of banks started from mid 80’s.
In the meantime, the policy of the government towards banking industry regarding economic management has changed since 1976. That year private sector had been entrusted to play a bigger role in the economy than before. Accordingly, in order to provide more credit to local investors the private sector banking had been introduced. Government decided to allow setting up of local Private Commercial Banks (PCB) in addition to Nationalized Commercial Banks (NCB) operating in the country.
Bangladesh Bank acts as a central bank for our country and it controls, supervises, and looks after the scheduled banks in the private commercial banks as well as the nationalized commercial banks formed by amalgamating the business of the twelve banks doing business in Bangladesh before liberation as per schedule given below:
Table 1: Banking History
|Existing Bank||New Bank||Authorized Capital(Lac Tk.)||Paid up Capital (Lac Tk.)|
|The National Bank of Pakistan, The Bank of Behawalpur Ltd.||Sonali Bank||500||200|

|The United Bank Ltd., The Union Bank Ltd.||Janata Bank||500||100|

|The Austrasia Bank Ltd., The Eastern Mercantile Bank Ltd.||Pubali Bank||500||100|
|The Eastern Banking Corporation Ltd.||Uttara Bank||500||100|
After the liberation of Bangladesh the twelve Banking companies who were doing business in Bangladesh, were nationalized by the Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh under president’s order No.26 of 1972 entitled The Bangladesh Bank (Nationalizations) Order, 1972” on March 26, 1972.
During 1983 Bangladesh Government allowed the private sector to operate banking business. Now Banks are formed and are operated under The Bank Company Act, 1991. At present there are about 50 banks operating their business in Bangladesh.

Banks are among the most important financial institutions in the economy. They are the principle source of credit (loan able fund) for millions of households (individuals and families) and for most local units of government. Moreover, for small businesses ranging from grocery stores to automobile dealers, banks are often the major source of credit to stock the shelves with merchandise or to fill a dealer’s showroom with new goods. When the business and consumers need financial information and financial planning, it is the bankers to whom they turn most frequently for advice and council.
Worldwide, banks grant more installments loans to consumers than any other financial institution. Banks are among the most important source of short-term working capital for businesses and have become increasingly active in recent years in making long-term business loans for new plant and equipment.
Dhaka Bank Limited is a financial intermediary that offers the widest range of financial services- especially credit, savings, and payment services-and performs the widest range of financial functions of any business firm in the economy. This multiplicity of bank services and functions has led to banks being labeled “financial department stores”.
George E. Peterson (1998) defines credit risk, as “Credit risk is the risk that a borrower will not make full and timely payment of debt service. Once a borrower falls behind in debt servicing, credit risk also involves the relative size and probable duration of default.” It is one of the significant risks a bank is exposed to. Each of the risk areas requires to be evaluated and aggregated to arrive at an overall risk grading measure.
a) Evaluation of financial risk: Financial analysis of leverage, liquidity, profitability and interest coverage ratios will help to analyze the risk that borrower might fail to meet obligation due to financial distress.
b) Evaluation of Business/Industry Risk: Analyzing the business outlook, size of business, industry growth, market completion and barriers to entry or exit to understand the industry situation or unfavorable business condition that might have an impact on borrower’s capacity to meet obligation. This capitalizes on the risk of failure due to low market share and poor industry growth.
c) Evaluation of Management Risk: Due to poor management skill, experience of the management, its succession plan and teamwork might cause the borrower to default.
d) Evaluation of Security Risk: Risk that the bank might be exposed due to poor quality or strength of the security in case of default. This may involve the strength of security and collateral, location of collateral and support.
e) Evaluation of Relationship Risk: These risk areas cover evaluation of limits utilization, account performance, conditions / covenants compliance by the borrower and deposit relationship.
CREDIT RISK ANALYSIS:
The term credit analysis is used to describe any process for assessing the credit quality of a company or individual. Credit analysis include credit scoring, it is more commonly used to refer to process that entail human judgment. Credit professionals in banks review the client’s balance sheet, income statement, recent trends in its industry, the current economic environment, etc. from this they can also assess the exact nature of an obligation. Based on this analysis, the credit manager assigns the client a credit rating, which can be used for making credit decision.
Many banks, investment managers and insurance companies hire their own credit analysts who prepare credit ratings for internal use. In Bangladesh there are two rating agencies one is CRAB (Credit Rating Agency of Bangladesh) and another is CRISAL. These two does the rating of all organizations.

How is Credit Risk MEASURED?
Credit risk is usually measured on a comparative scale. As per BRPD (Banking Regulation and Policy Department), CRG (credit Risk Grading) score sheet, a scale, is used to summarize risk assessments. Since there is no accurate way to combine the different risk factors, credit professionals either examine and weigh the underlying risks directly, or confirm the track record over time of a credit rating system to discriminate effectively between high and low-risk lending in a particular bank.
GUIDELINES ON CREDIT RISK MANAGEMENT:
Credit risk is the primary financial risk in the banking system. Identifying and assessing credit risk is essentially a first step in managing it effectively. In 1993, Bangladesh Bank as suggested by Financial Sector Reform Project (FSRP) first introduced and directed to use Credit Risk Grading system in the Banking Sector of Bangladesh under the caption “Lending Risk Analysis (LRA)”. The Banking sector since then has changed a lot as credit culture has been shifting towards a more professional and standardized Credit Risk Management approach.
Credit Risk Grading system is a dynamic process and various models are followed in different countries & different organizations for measuring credit risk. The risk grading system changes in line with business complexities. A more effective credit risk grading process needs to be introduced in the Banking Sector of Bangladesh to make the credit risk grading mechanism easier to implement.
Keeping the above objective in mind, the Lending Risk Analysis Manual (under FSRP) of Bangladesh Bank has been amended, developed and re-produced in the name of “Credit Risk Grading Manual”The Credit Risk Grading Manual has taken into consideration the necessary changes required in order to correctly assess the credit risk environment in the Banking industry. This manual has also been able to address the limitations prevailed in the Lending Risk Analysis Manual.
Credit Risk Grading (CRG):
Credit risk grading is an important tool for credit risk management as it helps the Banks & financial institutions to understand various dimensions of risk involved in different credit transactions. The aggregation of such grading across the borrowers, activities and the lines of business can provide better assessment of the quality of credit portfolio of a bank or a branch. The credit risk grading system is vital to take decisions both at the pre-sanction stage as well as post-sanction stage.
At the pre-sanction stage, credit grading helps the sanctioning authority to decide whether to lend or not to lend, what should be the loan price, what should be the extent of exposure, what should be the appropriate credit facility, what are the various facilities, what are the various risk mitigation tools to put a cap on the risk level.
At the post-sanction stage, the bank can decide about the depth of the review or renewal, frequency of review, periodicity of the grading, and other precautions to be taken.
Having considered the significance of credit risk grading, it becomes imperative for the banking system to carefully develop a credit risk-grading model that meets the objective outlined above
Definition of Credit Risk Grading:
- The Credit Risk Grading (CRG) is a collective definition based on the pre-specified scale and reflects the underlying credit-risk for a given exposure.
- A Credit Risk Grading deploys a number/ alphabet/ symbol as a primary summary indicator of risks associated with a credit exposure.
Credit Risk Grading is the basic module for developing a Credit Risk Management system.
Importance of Credit Risk Grading:
1. Well-managed credit risk grading systems promote bank safety and soundness by facilitating informed decision-making.
2. Grading systems measure credit risk and differentiate individual credits and groups of credits by the risk they pose. This allows bank management and examiners to monitor changes and trends in risk levels.
3. The process also allows bank management to manage risk to optimize returns.
Use of Credit Risk Grading:
- The Credit Risk Grading matrix allows application of uniform standards to credits to ensure a common standardized approach to assess the quality of individual obligor, credit portfolio of a unit, line of business, the branch or the Bank as a whole.
- As evident, the CRG outputs would be relevant for individual credit selection, wherein either a borrower or a particular exposure/facility is rated. The other decisions would be related to pricing (credit-spread) and specific features of the credit facility. These would largely constitute obligor level analysis.
Risk grading would also be relevant for surveillance and monitoring, internal MIS and assessing the aggregate risk profile of a Bank. It is also relevant for portfolio level analysis.
Credit Risk Grading:
The following CRG is being set by the Bangladesh Bank, which helps to evaluate the borrower. Risk manager will input data available from their income statement, balance sheet and cash flow to the (FSS) known as Financial Spread Sheet, which will calculate the risk ratio and provide the score based on the total score of profitability, risk ratio etc. manager will grade the client. A borrower will be categorized ‘Superior’ when he will provide full-cash security, or guaranteed by the government or international bank. This type of guarantee is superior because there is zero possibility of loan being classified or zero exposure. Next, a borrower is classified as ‘Good’ when the score is 85 or more. ‘Acceptable’ when his credit risk grading score is between 75 and 84. Banker need not to be worry till the score is 75 because they are considered to be ‘Good-performing loan’. When the client is ranked ‘Marginal’ banker needs to be careful about sanctioning loan because this client has 50% probability that he might classify. Then as the score become less by 10 points the client will be categorized ‘Special Mention’, ‘Substandard’, ‘Doubtful’ and ‘Bad/Loss’ when score is below 35. These four are called Non-performing loan. This scoring system is a decision making tool.
Table: Credit Rate Grading (CRG)
Fully cash secured, secured by government guarantee/international bank guarantee
Strong repayment capacity of the borrower, excellent liquidity, low leverage, consistent strong earnings and cash flow.
Not strong as GOOD grade borrower but has consistent earnings, cash flow and a good record of accomplishment.
Borrower having an above average risk due to strained liquidity, higher than normal leverage, thin cash flow and /or inconsistent earnings.
Potential weaknesses that deserve management’s close attention. If left uncorrected, these weaknesses may result in a deterioration of the repayment prospects of the borrower.
Weak financial condition, capacity to repay is in doubt.
Full repayment of principal and interest is unlikely and the possibility of loss is extremely high. Due to specifically identifiable pending factors such as litigation, liquidation procedures or capital injection, the asset is not yet classified as Bad & Loss.
Bad / Loss
Long outstanding with no progress in obtaining repayment or on the verge of wind up/liquidation. Prospects of recovery are poor and legal options have been pursued.

Ultimately, if client wants to ensure a good credit score they should keep financially fit and deal responsibly with their financial commitments. It is confidence that a loan will be paid back on schedule that determines whether credit is granted.
Re-assessing clients regularly is always a good practice for ensuring proper risk management and financial growth in banks. DBL updates the records with the latest financial statement of the client every year and sometimes every six months for clients. It is a good practice from a credit-risk control standpoint.
