First Security Bank Limited

Executive Summary

General Banking provides the foundation of banker-customer relationship. This is an era of keen competition among Banks. It is the most important and preliminary work of a bank. The regular service given to customers such as Depositing or drawing money, selling of instruments to them for remittance purpose, collection of instruments, providing other ancillary services to keep customer section busy. Personnel’s of this section should posses the required behavior for regular satisfaction of the customers.

            “Various Aspects of Service Provided by First Security bank Limited Dilkusha Branch”, is my assign project. So, I worked in the Account opening, Remittance, Advance, Foreign exchange and Accounts Division, side by side I learn other Banking operation.

            Lending is the core function of commercial bank. For a bank, good loans or credit or advances are most profitable assets. The largest portion of operating income is derived from lending. A commercial bank usually wins over its competitors only on the quality and quantity of lending. It is therefore, indispensable for a bank to have a well thought policy for executing its lending operation.

            Foreign trades refer to the trade between the different sovereigns nations of countries. Foreign trade mainly categorizes into export trade and import trade. For development of the economy in a country foreign trade is important. Financial institutions like bank can help the foreign trade of a country through financial accommodation to the foreign trade.

            The performance of the First Security Bank Limited as whole is said to be quite standard.  


Bank plays an important role in the business sectors and in the industrialization of a country. Basically the banks take deposits from the customers against interest and lend it to the borrowers against interest for a cessation period. Under these circumstances of banks offers different interest rates and other options to the customers to remit and deposit their money. These options are very common among the entire bank, but only the customer services and other facilities very from bank to bank.

            In our country there are Govt. Banks, Semi-Govt. Banks, Private sector commercial bank of Bangladesh and also it is the third generation private bank in Bangladesh. It started its crucial moment/juncture when Bangladesh economy was undergoing through massive economy reforms and pursuing unilateral and multilateral trade liberalization with the backdrop of the World Bank made international monitory fund recommendations. This FSBL with its ten branches in strategize locations of the country is providing the bet quality services to the customers and clients.

            Dilkusha branch is the principle branch of the FSBL. There are 43 employees working in the FSBL of Dilkusha branch, Mr. Feroz (EVP), is the head of the branch. They follows on principal, narrow span of management as a result of which the management can put directly care on all the departments.

            During my twelve weeks internship from August15th   to November 15th 2003, in the Dilkusha branch of FSBL. The experiences I have are all compiled in making repost.

Origin of the report

As a part of the B.B.A. course requirement, I was placed at Dilkusha branch of FSBL. During the period of August15th to November 15th 2003 as on internee by the East West University (EWU). At the Dilkusha branch of FSBL, my supervisor was Lt Col ATM Khairul Alam(Retd.), director, student Affairs; EastWestUniversity authorized me to prepare this report as part of the fulfillment of internship requirement.

Background of the study

Knowledge and learning become perfect when it is associated with theory and practice. Theoretical knowledge gets its perfection with practical application. As our educational system predominantly text based, inclusion practical orientation program, as an academic component is as exception to the norm. As the parties; educational institution and the organization substantially benefit from such a program, it seems a “win-win situation”. It establishes contracts and networking contracts. Contracts may help to get a job. That is, students can train and prepare themselves for the job market. A poor country like Bangladesh has an overwhelming number of unemployed education graduates. As they have no internship experience they have not been able to gain normal professional experience or establish networking system, which is important in getting a job. So practical orientation is a positive development in professional area. Recognizing the importance of practical experience, School of Management and Business Administration has introduced a three months practical exposure as a part of the curriculum of Master of Business Administration program. In such state of affairs the present aiming at analyzing the experience of practical orientation related to General Banking activities in the First Security Bank Limited, Dilkusha Branch.    

Objects of the study

The primary objective of this report is to achieve practical knowledge about banking to observe what are the basic services, but the specific objective of this report as follows:

  1. To know about the general banking.
  2. To know about loans and advances.
  3. To know about Foreign Exchange.
  4. To analyze the performance of Dilkusha branch.

Scope of the study

The scope of the organizational part covers the organizational structure, background, objective, function and department and business performance of FSBL as a whole. The main part covers the operational scenario of credit, foreign exchange, remittance of Dilkusha branch. This refers that how the bank help the customers in exporting and importing the goods, providing loans, and how it remits the money of the foreign clients, etc. all are in the project part of the report.

Source of data

The data collection method of study consists of both of primary and secondary sources. But majority of the information was collected from secondary courses.

  1. Primary sources: The primary sources include interviewed with the bankers and my work experience.
  2. Secondary sources: The secondary sources are the annual reports of the FSBL 2000-2001 and other published prospects.
  3. External Sources:
  • Different books and periodicals on banking.
  • Government report.


There were several constraints while preparing this report; only 12 weeks were not sufficient to visit all the desks of the branch. So some desks were remained unvisited. Moreover, some officers in some desks were found non-cooperative. Such desks were remained unexposed. The branch also refuses to provide data on its performance, especially in loans and advances. It is also not possible to go to the dept of each activities of branch because of time limitation. Therefore, it was very difficult to carry out the whole analysis.

The World Economy

In the wake of the new millennium the world economic scenario is fast changing giving rise to various avenues and opportunities as well as the accompanying risks. There are so many avenues for growth, which is the past neither, had to confront with such huge prospects of technological breakthrough and environmental hazards not were there conflicts of such proportions between the ideas of national sovereignty and globalization.

As globalization means grater freedom and prosperity, each and every country is in the process of converging incomes and standard of living driver by large international flow of goods and services to bring about shared prosperity. It is also envisaged that globalization would extricate the poor and backward nations of the developing would out of the economic morass and put them on the fast track of progress as well as rationalize their level and growth.

In a country like Bangladesh globalization has more to do with foreign investment and capital flow that an equitable international trade. The international flow has continued to favor rich countries where as it would have been in the event the case was reversed. Bangladesh is participating in the process of integration of her economy into the global one by opening up to international markets and harnessing foreign investment and trade. The developing countries have seen little profit from the recent boom in international financial flows and are suffering great deal from major cuts due to re-allocation in aid flows from advanced and donor countries.

In the concept of privatization the state has a smaller role to play and as such the focus is mainly on the market. During the last century, the state and market went hard in hand and functioned to tandem. Due to globalization the concept of market has undergone rapid changes and is well beyond the geographical boundaries of countries.

  The Bangladesh Economy

Although we have entered a new millennium nobody expects there will be any sudden breakthrough in the economy as it is a continuous process. The economic development of a country requires the use of capital through a sound banking system to provide the necessary finance to various development agencies which have not developed up to expectation due to constrains common to the economy of a third world country.

The macro economic development during the year 2001-2002 was marked by a healthy GDP growth and moderate inflation. For the second year running bumper rice harvest maintained growth at above 5% and GDP growth during the FY 2000 was at 5.7% which may be considered as the highest since the beginning of the 1990’s.  Conversely the growth performance in industry was sluggish with manufacturing growth of 3.3% being one of the lowest rates in recent years. Several adverse factors contributed to this situation, which included disruption in the supply of natural gas, which in turn affected the power supply and production activities. Furthermore, labor disputes during the second quarter of the year badly affected the operation of Chittagong port. In the services sector, growth in transportation, storage and communication contributed to about 13% to the total GDP but growth in trade sector was sluggish due to lower import growth.

            During the year some positive initiative were take in the banking sector with improvements in the legal and regulatory environment to improve loan recovery but unfortunately the high quantum of non performing assets and under capitalization continued to plague the entire the entire banking sector thus causing a major threat to the macro economic stability. The size of classified loans increased substantially which contributed to lower profitability of the Banks.

            Investment rate in FY’02 showed some increase and the declining trend in private savings was substantially reserved. The national saving rate increased from 11.9% of GDP in FY’01 to 14.6% in FY’02. This was partly due to increased inward remittances, increase in nominal interest rates and lower rate of inflation. Monetary policy in FY’02 continued to accommodate the borrowing needs of the government. Broad money increased from 8.3% to 11% in FY’02.

            Current expenditure exceeded the budgetary target by 3.6% due to higher interest payment on domestic public debts, food grain procurements, defense spending and other subsidies allowed by the government as a result of which the current expenditure-GDP ration increased from 8.7% to 8.9% in FY’02. On the revenue side there was a 5% shortfall in revenue collection, which was mainly due to low import growth and progressive weakness in the collection of VAT and income taxes.

Pay Order:

            Pay order are the safest way of making payments, as they are drawn on the bank issuing them. So there is no scope of fraudulence or cheques bouncing. A pay order is issued only within the members of the Bangladesh Bank clearing house (Dhaka Metro). It can be issued in favor of a customer holding an account, by debiting his account and crediting bills payable account. Incase of a non-customer, cash equivalent of the payment plus pay order charges is received in cash and held in the daily suspense account until the payment is made through clearing.

            The account payees submit the pay order in their specific banks. The banks then send the pay order to the clearinghouse where the respecting issuing banks receive them. The issuing banks verify the pay orders, which are then send back to the respecting banks and payment made by debiting the bills payable account. Entries are made on the fund transfer system.

Pay Slip:

            Bank meets its own expenses through pay slips. For its day-to-day transaction bank has some expenses of its own. Bank uses pay slips for this purpose.

Demand Draft:

            DD is basically the same as pay orders, but it can be drawn on other branches of First Security Bank, Sonali Bank, Foreign agency account, Bangladesh Bank. A DD is drawn on the bank’s other branches when payment has to be made outside Dhaka. The bank has to have a branch over there and he payer should have an account with the bank. For example, a DD can be drawn on FSBL, Chittagong since they have existing branches over there.

A DD works in the following way-

                                                Applicant fills the form of the bank

                                             DD is handed over the customer where

                                            name of paying bank and the bank from

          The drawing power indicates the ceiling of the limit up to which a customer can overdraw in his or her account. The drawing power is calculated in the amount arriver after deducting of the margin from the securities value either in cost price or market price which ever is lower. Under no circumstances, the advance will exceed the drawing power if the customer in the manner described above.

Definition of Foreign Exchange

          An ordinary citizen usually perceives “foreign exchange” as foreign money. The term foreign exchange is used in a broader sense. It can simply be defined as a ‘process of conversion of one currency into another’. The foreign exchange regulation act refers that foreign exchange means foreign currency and includes any instrument drawn accepted, made or issued under clause (13) of article 16 of the Bangladesh Bank order, 1972, all deposits, credits and balances payable in any foreign currency and any draft, travelers cheques, letter of credit and bill of exchange expressed or drawn in Bangladesh currency but payable in any foreign currency.

Foreign Exchange and Foreign Trade

          Foreign exchange like foreign trade is a part of economic science. It deals with the means and methods by which rights to wealth in one country’s currency are converted into those of another country. By the same token, it covers the methods used for conversion, the forms in which such conversions take place and the causes that render these conversions necessary.

Modes of Foreign Exchange

          On the basis of the various services regarding the foreign exchange provided by the FSBL can be segregated into three categories:

  1. Export
  2. Import
  3. Foreign Remittance

Before enormous discussion about the foreign exchange, it is vital to know about the letter of credit (L/C).

Letter of Credit

          Letter of credit (L/C) is an agreement between and importer and the bank (issuing bank). The bank provides letter of credit in order to purchase goods from the exporter. The banks acts in the behalf of the clients to deal with the exporter and the clients make the payments after receiving the goods accordingly.

Requirements of opening a L/C

                      # Current deposit account holder

                        # IRC (import registration certificate)

                        # Import policy

                        # Letter of credit authorizing from duly registered

                        # L/C application duly fills up and signs

                        # Indent

                        # Insurance coverage

                        # Income tax document

                        # Contingency liability voucher

                        # L/C registration

Negotiation on document

          Negotiation of document under L/C is the usual method of financing exporter at the post shipment stage. In this system, after the shipment of goods, the exporter presents the relative documents to the negotiating bank for registration. An exporter is required to submit the following documents for registration.

  • Bill of exchange:                                 The exporter generally issues it.
  • Bill of lading:                                      Bill of lading is the evidence of shipment. The shipment agent generally issues it but the captain of the ship also can issue it.
  • Commercial/ Proforma invoice:          It generally contains the buyers name and address, the sale name and address, details description of goods, unit and total amount.
  • Certificate of origin:                           It is a certificate to ensure the origin of the product. Metropolitan chamber of commerce and industry in Bangladesh issues it
  • Packing list:                                         It contains the packaging size, weight, number of product in each packet.
  • Insurance coverage:                            It plays a vital role for the bank to reduce the risk of any lost of the bank.
  • EXP form:                                           exporter has to fill this form.

a) Export

          Export is the process of selling goods and services to the other country. It has an immense contribution to generating income for the bank.

Requirements for the export procedure

In order to export of any goods or services to overseas, the exporter must have attested photocopies of the following documents with the up to date export registration certificate (ERC).

  • Bill of exchange
  • Commercial/ Proforma invoice
  • Certificate of origin
  • Packing list
  • Insurance coverage
  • Beneficiary certificate
  • Beneficiary fax

If the bank authority satisfies with all the information provided by the exporter, steps are taken to smooth out the process of export regarding collection of money or opening back to back L/C.

Opening back to back L/C

          Back to back L/C is a letter if credit backed by the original L/C or the mother L/C to open a new L/C, the bank provides it to the exporter to import the raw materials from overseas in order to produce the exportable commodity for the importer. It encouragers the exporter to produce more exportable goods. In this case, the bank offers some additional facilities.

Export Performance of FSBL:

b) Import

          In lime with the experience of developing countries imports payments of Bangladesh increased over the years.

             The imported items were mainly industrial raw materials, consumer goods, fertilizer machinery and old ships of scraping, recondition cars etc. the growth in import business had been previous year showing and increase of 20%. Efficient handling did the significant items of import and concerned efforts for building up of a potential clientele for the bank.

Import procedure/ Formalities:

          Before making imports, the importer enters in to a purchase contract with foreign supplier. If the suppliers have local agent, the importers obtain an indent and pro-forma invoice. If the suppliers have no local agents in Bangladesh, the importers holding a valid import registration certificate (IRC) can import goods in to Bangladesh provide the goods are in the permissible list of item as per the Govt.’s import policy order in force.

            All importers in to Bangladesh are subject to opening of L/C. import transactions are concluded with the help of documentary letter of credit established by the importers bank in favor of supplied (Beneficiary) and advised through the agent bank located in the supplier’s country.

♣ Documents that are needed for opening an import L/C re listed below:

a)      Party application duly signed and scaled by the opener / authorized signatory.

b)      At least four copies of pro-forma invoice/ indent duly signed and sealed by the opener and beneficiary / indentor. Opener signature to be verified by the banker.

c)      L/C application form (to be provided by the bank) duly signed and scaled by the opener / authorized signatory. Guarantor signature required (if applicable/ mentioned in the proposal). The banker must verify the signature.

d)     LCA / IMP forms duly signed and scaled by the opener / authorized signatory.

e)      L/C opening proposal approved by the opener authority mentioning L/C details (not required if the L/C is opened with 100% margin).

f)       Beneficiary credit report (if the L/C is more than $8000 or BDT 500000 which ever is highest).

g)      Insurance cover note with money receipt in original.

L/C Margin

          L/C margin varies bank-to-bank and customer-to-customer. Generally it depends on the following factors:

a)      Relationship between the client and the banker.

b)      Seasonal factor.

c)      Feature of the goods.

Foreign Remittance

          Foreign remittance is another important factor of the FSBL from where it earns a lot of foreign exchange every year. Remittance means to send or transfer money or money-worth from one place to another. In this case, the bank acts as the media to transfer or remit the money. Against the service it charges some commissions from the client.

Type of Remittance:

Inward Remittance:

It deals with funds from overseas. The remittance can be performed in two ways:

            # Remittance through TT/DD etc.

                   # Remittance due to export.

                        # TT

                        # DD

                        # Mail transfer

                        # Remittance due to import.

Special service

            By issuing Travelers check and passport endorsement.

 Ratio analysis

          The following ratios indicate the profitability measures for a bank. How much the return on assets of the return on equity, or what is the asset utilization etc. these are measured by the profitability ratios. The profitability ratios figured in my report are the following:

Profitability Ratios

*Return on Equity (ROE): This is the measurement that indicates the rate of return flowing to the bank’s stockholders. It approximates the rate of return the stockholders have received in return for their capital invested (i.e. placing their funds at risk in the hope of earning suitable profits).

* Return On Assets (ROA): this is primarily an indicator of managerial efficiency; it indicates how capable the management of the bank has been in converting the institution assets (i.e. its total resources) into net earnings.

* Net Interest margin: This measure indicates how large a spread between interests revenues and interest costs management has been able to achieve by close control over the bank’s earning assets and pursuit over the cheapest sources or funding.


            Here, a three years ratio analysis has been carried out in order to identify the trend of FSBL during their period 1999-2002. As the annual report of the year 2003 has not been prepared yet by the Bank analysis, I cannot interpret and analyze the ratios of that year. The analysis of current ratio indicates that it is in declining trend starting from 1.027 to 0.242. This is a negative symptom for the bank, which reveals that a bank has less current asset in hand to pay off its current liabilities. In 2002, current ratio was 0.242, which was far below the standard normal of 2:2. Therefore, this is an alarming trend for the bank.

            The profitability ratio analysis shows the ROE and the ROA of the bank. The ROE shows that it is in an increasing trend from a -4.0% to 16.3% in 2002. This indicates that the stockholders are having a higher rate of return for investing their capital or placing their funds at risk. The ROA also shows an increasing trend in the last there years starting from a -0.5% to 0.8%. This indicates a higher managerial efficiency and capability in converting the institution assets into net earnings.

            The Net interest Margin also shows an increasing trend starting from -0.01% in 1999 to 2.5% in 2002. This is a tremendous growth in the spread between interest revenues and interest costs of the bank. The Net Bank Operating Margin also shows an upward trend starting from -0.5% to 1.6% in 2002. This also shows managerial efficiency in achieving higher operating reveries and controlling operating costs for the bank.

            The Earnings per Share shows an upward trend starting from Tk-0.76/share to Tk3.45/share in 2002. This indicates that the stockholders are having higher earring sagest each share that they hold in the bank.

            Net Profit Margin for the bank shows a rapid growth for the last three years starting from a -83% in 1999 to 19.9% in 2002. This indicates the efficiency of the management in the effectiveness of expense management and service pricing policies.

            The Asset Utilization Ratio of the bank is also in an upward trend from 0.07% to 3.9% in 2002. The increase in the degree of asset utilization reflects better portfolio management policies (especially the mix and yield on the bank’s assets).

  • Tele banking gives the customer the opportunity to make inquiries and service request over the phone.
  • The corporate culture of FSBL is very much interactive compare to our other local organization.


  • Advertising and promotion is one of the weak point of FSBL. FSBL does not have any effective plan for aggressive marketing activities.
  • Higher service charge in some areas of banking operation than that of nationalized banks discourages customers from opening or maintaining accounts with this bank.
  • PC bank is not comprehensive banking software. It is desirable that a more comprehensive banking system should replace PC bank system.
  • At the entry level and mid level officer’s experience considerable low remuneration packages that some other local banks.
  • There is a very little practice for increasing motivation in the workers by the management.


  • FSBL can pursue diversification strategy in expanding its current line of business. The management can consider options for starting merchant banking or diversity in to leasing and insurance. By expanding business portfolio, FSBL can shrink business risk.
  • The credit facility offered by FSBL has attracted security and status conscious businessmen and well as service holders with higher income group.
  • FSBL can evaluate the option of lunching ATM and Credit card system.
  • FSBL should move towards the On-line banking operations. It is high time that they should go for this because some banks are already in to the On-line banking operation.
  • Enter new markets or segments.
  • Expand product line to meet broader range of customer need.


  • Default culture is very much familiar in our country. For a bank, it is very harmful. As FSBL is new, it has not faced it seriously yet. However as the bank grows older it might become a big problem.
  • The Central Bank exercises strict control over all banking activities in local banks like FSBL. Some times the restriction impose barrier in the normal operations and policies of the bank.
  • Rival bank easily copy the product offering of FSBL. There fore the bank is in continuous of product innovation to gain temporary advantage over its Competitors.
  • Sometime political loans are the threat for this banking service.


Although this branch is making a huge amount of profit and generating a large volume of deposit, a number of problem have been dictated while I working this branch. Based on my work experience at FSBL, Dilkusha branch, I would like to put the following recommendation:

  • Bank need to increase its quality of customer service.
  • Branch should be innovative and diversified in its service.
  • Need modern technology, without using modern technology no bank can even think of remaining in the business in near future. So the bank must decide right now how it equip its branches with modern technology.
  • Information system should be developing. Bank should be using internet for local and international correspondence.
  • Human resource is another sector for the branch to be developed urgently. Human resources, in the branch are not equipped with adequate knowledge. Bank can arrange training program for these lacking.
  • Chain of doing job in the branch should be made clear. In the branch chain of completing a work is not clearly, one employee sometimes performs same duty and in another time different employee performs it. So no employee can be held liable for defective work or for delay in work.
  • Need to speed up processing of loan application.
  • They’re being no restriction customers clients are found to move hither and thither inside the bank premises. This hinders the smooth functioning and amount to security of the bank office should more careful about this.
  • Computer division need to be up date and extensive for the greater welfare of the branch.
  • Bank should be innovative and diversified in its services.
