Executive Summary_____________________________

At present, Consumer Banking is one of the mounting core business units of any competitive bank since consumer banking deals with ample customers and lead generator of significant revenue. For futuristic banking product and services offered by consumer banking, consumer banking is getting momentum day by day. And all banks are trying to aggressively expand the consumer or retail banking division. Major spirit of consumer banking is the consumer deposit and lending product line, customer base, ancillary consumer banking products like debit card and credit card. As far as life style of people is concerned, consumer bank can play a widespread role since consumer banking deals with individuals’ complete life style as well as banking solution.

Beauty and spirit of consumer banking inspired me to decide Consumer Banking as my internship report topic. EBL is one of the fastest growing private commercial banks, which is aggressively moving forward in the arena of consumer banking by rendering super product and service range among huge customer base across the country. EBL already set up some landmarks by introducing ‘ real time online banking, Debit card, Internet Banking, kiosks and sales team for consumer banking.

In this report, four chapters have segregated total analysis. While chapter one demonstrates introduction, scope and limitation of the study, chapter two has shown the overview of EBL comprising history, vision, mission and core business units. Consumer banking scenario of the EBL has been demonstrated in chapter three. Finally finding and conclusion is drafted in chapter five of this report.

Introduction:

I completed this project in Eastern Bank Limited (EBL), one of the largest and reputed Private Commercial Bank in Bangladesh. During this time my instructor, Muhmud zubayer assistant professor Dept of business Administration, East West University assigned me. I was placed in the Head office of EBL, in the Consumer Finance Center. The primary activities carried out by this department include evaluation of the loan applications, preparing necessary documents for the loan’s approval, monitoring the loan after disbursement and ensuring its repayment. While working on this department I found that Consumer Banking at EBL is striving hard to grip the market. From year 2004 to 2005, their deposit growth is 53% and loan growth is 174%. However, to increase the volume is not only the target, they have broad planning for future in the consumer banking sector.

Scope of the study:
This internship report is based on the topic- Analysis of Consumer Credit Scheme – An Overview of Eastern Bank Ltd. During this period, I able to gather practical knowledge about the overall consumer financing procedure of EBL.
The first part of the report gives a synopsis of Eastern Bank Ltd and its operation. Most of the information of this part is gathered from internal source and web site.
Second part will give the overall scenario about the Consumer Banking & Consumer Finance Centre (CFC) and different sort of consumer loan offered by EBL with competitive interest rates.
Third part of the report will give a detailed static of the consumer banking performance in the last year. I have collected this information from the MIS (Management Information System) Dept. I greatly thanked to them in this regard.
And the last part of the report gives an analysis of the current condition of Consumer Banking at EBL with the Porter’s five forces of model.

Objective of the study:
The basic focus of this study is to give a general outlook about the consumer financing position at EBL. However the specific objectives of this report are:

General objective:
– To gain practical job experience and view the application of theoretical knowledge in practical life.

Project objective:
– To present an overview of the Consumer Finance Centre of EBL
– To provide the yearly consumer loan statistics and overall trend of consumer loan.
– To identify the ways to perk up the consumer banking position at EBL.
Methodology:
The first step of this report work was concerned with problem identification and deciding on the topic. This was achieved through consultation with the faculty advisor and the supervisor in EBL. Next the particular objectives of the project were set. Based on these objectives, the necessary data for completion of the project were identified. Next, those internal sources were identified who would be able to provide the necessary information.
After this, the data collection process began. Both primary and secondary sources of information were used for the purpose of this report. The primary sources of information were the concerned officials of EBL. Data were collected from them through face-to-face interview. The sources of secondary information were different publications, board memos and other reports of EBL.
After data collection was complete, the data was analyzed to find out their implications. Data Analysis was done mostly through table and statistical data comparison (frequency, relative frequency). Software like MS- Excel is used to analyze the data and come up with good findings.
Limitation:
• Lack of comprehension of the respondents was the major problem that created much confusion regarding verification of conceptual question.
• Limitation of time was one of the most important factors that languished the present study. Due to time limitation, many aspects could not be discussed in the present study. Due to time constraints, the sample size had to be restricted to 25 only.
• Confidentiality of data was another important barrier that was faced during the conduct of this study. Every organization has their own secrecy that is not revealed to others. While collecting data on EBL’s strategic plan, the personnel did not disclose enough information for the sake of confidentiality of the organization.
• Rush hours and business was another reason that acts as an obstacle while gathering data.

History and Background
The emergence of Eastern Bank Limited in the private sector is an important event in the banking industry of Bangladesh. Eastern Bank Limited started its business as a public limited company on August 8, 1992 with the primary objectives to carry on all kinds of banking business in and outside of Bangladesh and also with a view to safeguard the interest of the depositors of erstwhile BCCI (Bank of Credit and Commerce International (Overseas)) under the Reconstruction Scheme, 1992, framed by Bangladesh Bank.
In 1991, when BCCI had collapsed internationally, the operation of this bank had been closed Bangladesh. After a long discussion with the BCCI employees and taking into consideration the depositors’ interest, Bangladesh Bank then gave permission to form a bank named Eastern Bank Limited which would take over all the assets, cash and liabilities of erstwhile BCCI in Bangladesh, with effect from 16th August 1992. So, it can be said that EBL is a successor of BCCI.
EBL started its business as a scheduled bank with only four branches, which included Principal Branch, Dhaka; Motijheel Branch, Dhaka; Agrabad Branch, Chittagong and Khulna Branch. EBL started its business with a motto to grow as a leader in the banking arena of Bangladesh through better counseling and efficient service to clients. EBL resumed its operational activities initially with an authorized capital of Tk. 1000 million, divided into 10 million shares of Tk. 100 each and paid up capital of Tk. 310 million. The initial shareholders were the NCBs, various govt. agencies, and some of the depositors who had agreed to accept shares in the new bank in lieu of their deposits. The first Board of Directors of EBL constituted under govt. supervision, consisted of 7 directors from various business and professions. Eastern bank Limited was under govt. control until the end of 2000 and therefore, there were lots of deficiencies in the Bank’s management. In 2001, the board of directors brought in new professional management from various foreign banks who have been trying to modernize the bank ever since.
Eastern Bank Limited started the year 2004 with Paid-up Capital stood at Tk. 828 million but the authorized capital remained unchanged at Tk. 1000 million. The general public held 83.42% of its shares while institutional investors held the rest 16.58%. At present, EBL is one of the fastest growing commercial banks in the country & the largest capital based bank in Bangladesh. It has 23 branches (including 1 off-shore banking unit) scattered all over the major cities of the country in major business areas.
Vision:
To become the bank of choice by transforming the way we do business and developing a truly unique financial institution that delivers superior growth and financial performance and be the most recognizable brand in the financial services in Bangladesh.
Mission of EBL:
We will deliver service excellence to all our customers, both internal and external.
We will constantly challenge our systems, procedures and training to maintain a cohesive and professional team in order to achieve service excellence.

Like any other business organization, the top management makes all the major decisions in EBL. The board of directors being at the highest level of organizational structure plays an important role in policy formulation.

They control the affairs of these departments through the managers who are in charge of various departments under these divisions.
Mid and lower level employees get the direction and instruction from the top executives about the duties and tasks they have to perform. Management of Eastern Bank Ltd. assumes that employees are members of the team, who actively participate in accomplishing the organization goal.

Market analysis shows the following viable deposit and loan market size for consumer clients. Only 20% of deposit market size and 14% of total consumer loan market size has been occupied. So still ample share of both consumer deposit and consumer loan market is remaining.

Main Elements of Business Strategy:

Designing product wise consumer budget and action plan:
All branches or sales & Service centers are provided product wise and month wise budget and action plan of different customer’s events. These are monitored and tracked regularly.

Introducing Contemporary product and Kiosk or booth:
Introducing contemporary product line for different target group like executives, housewives, students of private varsities which EBL is going to do soon will assure robust sales volume. Kiosk or mini booth (total 5 in 2005) will be set up in busy Dhaka areas and that will introduce a new model of banking in Bangladesh.

We will offer Internet Banking, ATM, and Bills Pay services plus loan and deposit account application sourcing at those kiosks.

Designing Hunting Team/ Direct Sales Team
EBL already has 150 commission pay based direct sales agents in its team whose only responsibility is sales.

At EBL we have also formed “hunter team” in each branch the members of which have clear focus on branch-based sales, while there are separate teams for services.

Training and Motivation for Direct Sales Team
Embrace Direct Sales and support Direct Sales. Know they hold the key to your growth

Two Customers Events per Month in the Branch Level
Currently we are ensuring minimum two customers events are conducted inside/outside branch per month going by the net relationship value (NRV) of the customers. We believe in the strength of micro marketing, which is a totally new concept in the banking industry of Bangladesh. So far already 60+ events have been held at EBL branches where some 25 customers attended at each event.

Aggressive Advertisement campaign and aggressive promotion all over the year
EBL has launched aggressive media campaign and street based visibility campaign this year. We are already on air every evening with a premier TV channel in Bangladesh; and have already launched a road based campaign for promoting our technology-based products.

One BRM per week
Currently we are holding one Business Review Meeting per week in consumer banking. This is a very helpful tool for fostering nicer and more effective communication and for tracking progress of business and projects. BRM also helping us to monitor actual time-to-market for our different products and services.

Another major element of our business strategy is to be innovative in the areas of product development and launching. We have very successfully launched EBL Auto Loan which is on time has been able to take the top position in Auto Loan market; and then we have launched EBL Jiban Dhara (Any Purpose Lifestyle Loan) which also, as a product, came out to be different form the existing other products in the market.

The main driver of our business strategy is to be different, to be able to differentiate ourselves form others not according to us, but according to the customers. That is the reason; EBL is planning to launch its ATM and Credit Card business in 2005 in a totally different format in this market.

Future Product Development Plan and promotion program:

We are planning to introduce the following new products for our consumer banking in 2005:

Children Deposit Plan (only for kids)
Evening banking for selected branches
Introducing Partially Secured Loan or EBL Money Maker Loan
EBL Jiban Dhara (Lifestyle Loan; already launched)
Islamic Banking
EBL Freedom Loan (loan for women’s executives and other solvent women)
EBL Homemaker Loan (loan for housewives)
EBL Travel Loan
Special deposit for private university students, and housewives
SMS banking through mobile phone
Credit Card (Visa and / or Amex)
15 ATMs – solely EBL’s ATMs, not under any consortium arrangement
Mall branding (week long visibility driven show at super market / mega mall floors)

Promotion is the vital marketing mix element that helps to occupy a place in the customers’ mind. We are thinking of launching the followings to give our brand equity a jolt:

Campaign for Private University Students: As we are aware that 52 private varsities are there in Bangladesh, the students of which go abroad regularly for higher studies. We want to launch “Student File” program for these students, which will give us good opportunity of fee and FX earnings. We want to offer them also savings account, debit card and Internet banking though normal channels plus kiosks.
Kids Day: We plan to celebrate kid’s day on a certain Friday, both in Dhaka and in Chittagong. Kids of English medium schools along with their guardians will be invited in the program. Drawing or game contest will take place. Top performers will be awarded with bank’s logo pasted school bags.

Mobile Loan Hut: Mobile sales booth or loan hut will be set up at Bashaudnara City, the largest mega mall in Dhaka.
Following is our desired mix of advertising/promotion sources:

Consumer Finance Centre:
Consumer Finance Center (CFC) is the centralized department for evaluating credit risk in consumer lending. The department is consist of a team of people to identify, analyze, measure and manage risk related to consumer credit.
Due to the asymmetric information and moral hazard, banks have to suffer a lot due to the bad loans and advances, which weakens the financial soundness of the bank. If the selection of borrower is correct, that is, the borrower is of good character, capital and capacity or of reliability, resourceful and responsible; the bank can easily get the return from the lending. CFC made this monitoring much more easier. LAP comes from 22 branches of EBL in CFC. Based on their detailed investigation and analysis higher authority approved or declined the loan applications. So that chance of bad loans lessens.
All unsecured retail loans will be processed, monitored and managed by the Consumer Finance Center. Each loan application after recommendation from Officer Lending Support will be approved/ declined by higher authority at Consumer Finance Center

Credit Approval Procedure:

Studying past track record: After getting an application for a loan, an EBL Official studies the past track record of the applicant. Generally the study includes,

Account balances and the past transactions.
Credit report from other banks.
Information of the Industry by studying market feasibility.
Financial statements (balance sheet, cash flow statement, and income statement). If the borrower is a sole- proprietor, then the single entry accounting treatment is converted to double entry system.
Report from Credit Information Bureau of Bangladesh Bank if the amount is more than TK.10 lac.
Borrower analysis: Borrower analysis is done from the angle of 3-C (character, capital, capacity) or 3-R (reliability, resourcefulness, responsibility). It follows that the bank forms a rational judgment about the integrity of the borrower, which should be undoubted. The human skill, conceptual skill, operational skill is qualitatively analyzed.

Business analysis: Business analysis is done from two angles-terms and conditions and collateral securities.

Monitoring Process in Consumer Banking:
Consumers are all individuals, professionals, housewives, doctors, and engineers, etc and high net worth individuals.

Market for consumer lending:

According to the statistics and market research papers available, the consumer lending market in Bangladesh has a size of BDT 160 billion whereas loan outstanding as of September 30, 2005 as per Scheduled Bank Statistics of Bangladesh Bank is around BDT 52 billion (Categorized under: Advances for professional services, Flat purchase, Consumer Goods, purchase through credit cards, educational expenses etc). This indicates that only 32% of the market has been realized by the financial institutions. So the remaining 68% of the market holds true potential for the loan giving institutions. We fear that too restrictive and stringent regulations at this embryonic stage of consumer financing will slow the market growth having adverse impact on the economy as a whole.

Market for consumer deposit:
According to the statistics and market research papers available, the consumer deposit market in Bangladesh has a size of BDT 210 billion whereas loan outstanding as of September 30, 2005 as per Scheduled Bank Statistics of Bangladesh Bank is around BDT 64 billion. This indicates that only 30% of the market has been realized by the financial institutions. So the remaining 70% of the market holds true potential for the deposit mobilizing institutions. Presently, all banks are trying to introduce new consumer deposit product comprising current, savings and monthly savings plan.
