Bank provides necessary funds for executing various programmers underway in the process of economic development. They collect savings of large masses of people scattered throughout the country, which in the absence of the banks would have remained ideal and unproductive. These scattered amounts are collected, pooled together & made available to commerce in industry for meeting the requirements. Economy of Bangladesh is in the group of world's most underdeveloped economies. One of the reasons may be its underdeveloped banking system.

2.12 Poor Performance indicators of JBL and its Reason: Measurement


Profit in Lending

It is clearly under stable from the graph that it is a perfect replica of marginal cost of funds. So we can assume and say that it is due to the policy undertaken by the Bangladesh bank authority and Government of Bangladesh


JBL has issued new issue in the year of 2004 and 2006 so its observe a declining trend afterwards year 2003.


It is also a reflection of the fast growing asset base of JBL relating to its profit. But it is alarming as it is failing to generate expected level of profit out of its assets.

Per Employee Deposit

JBL has recruited fair amount of people after wards 2003 responding to its expansionary policy and new branches also added to its operation every single year so it causes decline in pool of new deposit per employee.

CHAPTER FOUR Credit Risk Management of Jamuna Bank Limited

4.1 Credit Risk Grading (CRG): Risk is the element of uncertainty or possibility of loss that prevail in any business transaction in any place, in any mode and at any time. In the financial arena, enterprise risks can be broadly categorized as Credit Risk, Operational Risk, Market Risk and Other Risk. Credit risk is the possibility that a borrower or counter party will fail to meet agreed obligations. Globally, more than 50% of total risk elements in banks and FI’s are Credit Risk alone. Thus managing credit risk for efficient management of a FI has gradually become the most crucial task. Credit risk may take the following forms: •

In direct lease/term finance: rentals/principal/ or interest amount may not be repaid.

In issuance of guarantees: applicant may fail to build up fund for settling claim, if any.

In documentary credits: applicant may fail to retire import documents and many others.

In factoring: the bills receivables against which payments were made, may fail to be paid.

In treasury operations: the payment or series of payments due from the counter parties under the respective contracts may not be forthcoming or ceases.

In securities trading businesses: funds/ securities settlement may not be effected.

In cross-border exposure: the availability and free transfer of foreign currency funds may either cease or restrictions may be imposed by the sovereign.

Credit risk management encompasses identification, measurement, matching mitigations, monitoring and control of the credit risk exposures to ensure that.

The individuals who take or manage risks clearly understand it.

The organization’s Risk exposure is within the limits established by Board of Directors with respect to sector, group and country’s prevailing situation.

Risk taking Decisions are in line with the business strategy and objectives set by BOD

The expected payoffs compensate the risks taken.

Risk taking decisions are explicit and clear.

Sufficient capital as a buffer is available to take risk.

Credit risk management needs to be a robust process that enables FIs to proactively manage facility portfolios in order to minimize losses and earn an acceptable level of return for shareholders. Central to this is a comprehensive IT system, which should have the ability to capture all key customer data, risk management and transaction information including trade & Forex. Given the fast changing, dynamic global economy and the increasing pressure of globalization, liberalization, and consolidation it is essential that FIs have robust credit risk management policies and procedures that are sensitive and responsive to these changes. 4.1.1 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. Credit risk grading is an important tool for credit risk management as it helps the 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 FI. 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 lending 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 FI can decide about the depth of the review or renewal, frequency of review, periodicity of the grading, and other precautions to be taken. Risk grading should be assigned at the inception of lending, and updated at least annually. FIs should, however, review grading as and when adverse events occur. A separate function independent of facility origination should review risk grading. As part of portfolio monitoring, FIs should generate reports on credit exposure by risk grade. Adequate trend and migration analysis should also be conducted to identify any deterioration in credit

quality. FIs may establish limits for risk grades to highlight concentration in particular grading bands. It is important that the consistency and accuracy of grading is examined periodically by a function such as an independent credit review group. 4.1.2 Functions of Credit Risk Grading: Well-managed credit risk grading systems promote financial institution safety and soundness by facilitating informed decision-making. Grading systems measure credit risk and differentiate individual credits and groups of credits by the risk they pose. This allows FI management and examiners to monitor changes and trends in risk levels. The process also allows FI management to manage risk to optimize returns. 4.1.3 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 FI as a whole.

CRG would provide a quantitative measurement of risk which portrays the risk level of a borrower and enables quick decision making,

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 an FI. It is also relevant for portfolio level analysis.

CRG would provide a quantitative framework for assessing the provisioning requirement of a FI’s credit portfolio.

4.1.4 Risk Grading for Corporate and SME:

The proposed CRG scale is applicable for both new and existing borrowers.

It consists of 8 categories, of which categories 1 to 5 represent various grades of acceptable credit risk and 6 to 8 represent unacceptable credit risk. However, individual FI depending on their risk appetite may implement more stringent policy




Superior Good Acceptable Marginal/Watch list


1 2 3 4

Special Mention Substandard Doubtful Bad & Loss

Having considered the significance of credit risk grading, it becomes imperative for the financial system to carefully develop a credit risk grading model, which meets the objective outlined above.

The following Risk Grade Matrix is provided as an example. The more conservative risk grade (higher) should be applied if there is a difference between the personal judgment and the Risk Grade Scorecard results. It is recognized that the FIs may have more or less Risk Grades, however, monitoring standards and account management must be appropriate given the assigned Risk Grade:



DEFINITION  Credit facilities, which are fully secured i.e. fully cash covered.

Superior – Low Risk


Credit facilities fully covered by government guarantee.

Credit facilities fully covered by the guarantee

of a top tier international Bank. Strong repayment capacity of the borrower

The borrower has excellent liquidity and low leverage.

 Good


The company demonstrates consistently strong earnings and cash flow certainty.

Borrower has well established, strong market share.

Very good management skill & expertise.

These borrowers are not as strong as GOOD Grade

borrowers, but still demonstrate consistent earnings, cash flow certainty and have a good track record.



Borrowers have adequate liquidity, cash flow and earnings.

Acceptable management

Acceptable parent/sister company guarantee

Aggregate Score of 75-84 based on the Risk

Grade Score Sheet This grade warrants greater attention due to


conditions affecting the borrower, the industry or the economic environment. 

Weaker business credit & early warning signals of emerging business credit detected.

Marginal/Watch list

The borrower incurs a loss

Facility repayments routinely fall past due

Account conduct is poor, or other untoward factors are present.

Credit requires attention

Aggregate Score of 65-74 based on the Risk

Grade Score Sheet This grade has potential weaknesses that deserve






uncorrected, these weaknesses may result in a deterioration of the repayment prospects of the borrower. Special Mention


Severe management problems exist.

Facilities should be downgraded to this grade if

4.1.5 Ratings Review: The rating review can be two-fold: 

Continuous monitoring by those who assigned the grading. The Relationship Managers (RMs) generally have a close contact with the borrower and are expected to keep an eye on the financial stability of the borrower. In the event of any deterioration the grading are immediately revised /reviewed.

Normally CRG should be reviewed at least once in a year. For risk grades starting from 5 to 8, CRG should be reviewed in every six months.

Secondly the risk review functions of the FI or business lines also conduct periodical review of grading at the time of risk review of credit portfolio.

4.2 Lending Guidelines: All FI’s should have established “Lending Guidelines” that clearly outline the senior management’s view of business development priorities and the terms and conditions that should be adhered to in order for facilities to be approved. The Lending Guidelines should be updated at least annually to reflect changes in the economic outlook and the evolution of the FI’s facility portfolio, and be distributed to all lending/marketing officers. The Lending Guidelines should be approved by the Managing Director/CEO & Board of Directors of the FI based on the endorsement of the FI’s Head of Credit Risk Management and the Head of Business Units. Any departure or deviation from the Lending Guidelines should be explicitly identified in credit applications and a justification for approval provided. Approval of facilities that do not comply with Lending Guidelines should be restricted to the FI’s Head of Credit or Managing Director/CEO or Board of Directors. The Lending Guidelines should provide the key foundations for account officers/relationship managers (RM) to formulate their recommendations for approval, and should include the following: •

Industry and Business Segment Focus

The Lending Guidelines should clearly identify the business/industry sectors that should constitute the majority of the FI’s facility portfolio. For each sector, a clear indication of the FI’s appetite for growth should be indicated (as an example, Textiles: Grow, Cement: Maintain, Construction: Shrink). This will provide necessary direction to the FI’s marketing staff. •

Types of Facilities

The type of facilities that are permitted should be clearly indicated, such as Lease, Term Loan, Home Loan, and Working Capital etc. •

Single Borrower/Group Limits/Syndication1

Details of the FI’s Single Borrower/Group limits should be included as per Bangladesh Bank guidelines. FIs may wish to establish more conservative criteria in this regard. •

Sector Lending Caps

An important element of credit risk management is to establish exposure limits for single obligors and group of connected obligors. FIs are expected to develop their own limit structure while remaining within the exposure limits set by Bangladesh Bank. The size of the limits should be based on the credit strength of the obligor, genuine requirement of credit, economic conditions and the institution’s risk tolerance. Appropriate limits should be set for respective products and activities. FIs may establish limits for a specific industry, economic sector or geographic regions to avoid concentration risk. •

Product Lending Caps

FIs should establish a specific product exposure cap to avoid over concentration in any one product. •

Discouraged Business Types

Facilities should outline industries or lending activities that are discouraged. The Facility may have segregated sectors to be discouraged based on the following: GOVERNMENT SPECIFIED BEST PRACTICED  Military  Highly Leveraged





COMPANY SPECIFIC  Finance of Speculative  Mineral 

Investments Share Lending


Extraction/Mining, or other 

Taking an Equity Stake in

listed on CIB black list or

activity that is Ethically or 


known defaulters

Environmentally Sensitive



Counter parties in countries subject to UN sanctions




Companies 

Bridge Loans relying on

equity/debt issuance as a source of repayment.

Facility Parameters

Facility parameters (e.g., maximum size, maximum tenor, and covenant and security requirements) should be clearly stated. As a minimum, the following parameters should be adopted: 

Facilities should not grant facilities where the FI’s security position is inferior to that of any other financial institution.

Assets pledged as security should be properly insured.

Valuations of property taken as security should be performed prior to facilities being granted. A recognized 3rd party professional valuation firm should be appointed to conduct valuations.

Cross Border Risk

Risk associated with cross border lending. Borrowers of a particular country may be unable or unwilling to fulfill principle and/or interest obligations. Distinguished from ordinary credit risk because the difficulty arises from a political event, such as suspension of external payments. 

Synonymous with political & sovereign risk

Third world debt crisis

4.2.1 Factors Need to Be Considered In Assessing Credit Risk: As a Credit Assessment is a prior step before granting credit a thorough credit and risk assessment should be conducted prior to the granting of a facility, and at least annually thereafter for all facilities. The results of this assessment should be presented in a Credit Application As per the Bangladesh Bank Credit Risk Management manual following this: •

Credit Application Should summarize this following things in detail 

Amount and type of facility(s) proposed

Purpose of facilities

Facility Structure (Tenor, Covenants, Repayment Schedule, Interest)

Determining Global Credit Portfolio Limits:

Determining global credit portfolio is one of the major steps of deciding credit proportion to different types of credit. By this JBL assign a limit to different facilities to minimize their risk. It is done to allocate their total credit portfolio in a mean which is less risky and exposed them to the highest profit. This is reviewed on change of the total economic scenario of the country as well as the global economy and JBL also tend to change this with the change or presence of new law.

This JBL’s Global Credit Portfolio addressed the credit exposure to Tem Facilities, Total Facilities, International/Cross Border Credit Exposure, Customer Group Credit Exposure, Unsecured Credit Exposure. So far this Credit policy has been addressed all the issues but its timeliness and its affectivity is in question as it has not been reviewed for the last three years.

4.3.2 Deciding Sector wise Allocation:

After it decides it global portfolio limit it allocates its total credit portfolio according the decided parameter of the Global Credit Portfolio Limit. Sector wise analysis is done prior to allocating limit sector wise. It is also done with the thought of keeping the aggregate risk of the bank low and at the same time rotating the credit as much as possible. This is the snap shot of their sector wise credit portfolio for the last two years. (Appendix -1)

Graph 10: Sector Wise Credit Portfolio 4.3.3 Assessing Credit Risk:

If the applicants fall within the range of global credit limit and belong to a sector there is enough fund to accommodate this loan JBL forward this to the further processing after assessing its exposure to credit risk. A through credit risk assessment is to be conducted as per the credit policy paper prepared by JBL in the year 2005. According to that policy paper credit risk should be assessed before sanctioning any credit facility. And at the end of each year it should be reviewed for each relationship with respect to the changed condition of the business and economy.

Relationship manager (Branch Manager) should be responsible for all the relationship and must ensure the accuracy of the credit facilities before submitting for approval. It is also the manager who should be fully equipped with the knowledge of Bank’s Credit Risk Policy and conduct due diligence on the borrower. Followings are the areas of risk which should be assessed before sanctioning any credit facility:


Borrower Analysis a) Share Holding b) Reputation c) Education d) Experience – Success History e) Net Worth f) Age

This review is to keep the risk of credit portfolio at a minimal level. Relationship manager of the branch are to do this on due time and this report is to be updated on MIS and send to the higher authority in case of downgrade of any relation.

4.3.12 Early Alert System:

An early alert system is one that has risks or potential weakness of material nature requiring monitoring, supervision or close attention by management. Despite a prudent credit assessment process some time loan become problematic, it is essential to identify those problem ahead of time and before it occurs. And it should be reported to the management to take necessary action. With the time an account can be reclassified as regular account. If the problems or the symptoms which causes alert is mitigated than It could have been reclassified to the original classification. Here are the Typical Characteristics of Early Alert System identified by JBL: EA1 – Industry and Competition 

Position within industry rapidly eroding

Industry may be matured and in long term decline or in cyclical downturn

EA1 – Ownership Management

Concerns over the ability of management to effectively manage existing operation, business expansion or business expansion plans

Owners show lack of commitment to support business operation

EA3 – Balance Sheet 

Delay in submission, stale financial and or deterioration

Operating results are deteriorating or working capital cycle deteriorating

Highly geared relative to peer/industry and on upward trend

Rapid acquisitions of assets without proper financial restructuring

Declining asset cover short term debts

EA4 – Cash Flow/Repayment Source 

Cash flow is Cash flow is unlikely to cover both mandatory debt service repayment and other business needs.

Ability to reduce working capital bank lines is limited or nonexistent.

Evidence of misuse of funds or monies diverted into non-core activities.

Liquidity Stained and there is a need for additional borrowing or capital now or in the near future.

EA5 – Performance 

Payment defaults – interest payments are overdue for more than 15 days.

Temporary overdraft for 90 days or more has not been regularized with formal limit and security documentations

EA6 – Expired Limit/Incomplete Documentation 

Security documentations are pending after 30 days of approved time.

Facilities expired for more than 30 days.

4.3.13 Recovery of Non Performing Loan:

Account Transfer Procedures

Within 7 days of an account being downgraded to substandard (grade 6), a Request for Action, RFA and a handover/downgrade checklist should be completed by the RM and Forwarded to RU for acknowledgement. The account should be assigned to an account manager within the RU, who should review all documentation, meet the customer, and prepare a classified Loan Review Report, CLR within 15 days of the transfer. The CLR should be approved by the head of Credit, and copied to the Head of Corporate Banking and to the Branch/office where the loan was originally sanctioned. This initial CLR should highlight any documentation issues, loan structuring weaknesses, proposed workout strategy, and should seek approval for any loan loss provisions that necessary. Recovery Units should ensure that the following is carried out when an account is classified as sub standard or worse: 

Facilities are withdrawn or repayment is demanded as appropriate. Any drawings or advances should be restricted, and only approved after careful security and approval from appropriate executives within CRM.

CIB reporting is updated according to Bangladesh Bank guidelines and the borrower’s Risk Grade is changed as appropriate.

Loan loss provisions are taken based on Force Sale Value (FSV).

Loans are only rescheduled in conjunction with the Large Loan Rescheduling guidelines of Bangladesh Bank. Any rescheduling should be based on projected future cash flows, and should be strictly monitored.

Prompt legal action is the borrower is uncooperative.

Non-Performing Loan (NPL) Monitoring

On a quarterly basis, a Classified Loan Review (CLR) should be prepared by the RU Account Manager to update the status of the action/recovery plan, review and assess the adequacy of provisions, and modify the bank’s strategy as appropriate. The Head of Credit should approve the CLR for NPLs up to 15% of the bank’s capital, with MD/CEO approval needed for NPLs in excess of 15%. The CLR’s for NPLs above 25% of capital should be approval by the MD/CEO, with a copy received by the board.


NPL Provisioning and Write-off

The guideline established by Bangladesh Bank for CIB reporting, Provisioning and write off of bad and doubtful debts, and suspension of interest should be followed in all cases. These requirements are the minimum, and Banks are encouraged to adopt more stringent provisioning/write off policies. Regardless of the length of time a loan is past due, provisions should be raised against the actual and expected losses at the time they are estimated. The approval to take provisions, write offs, or released of Provisions/upgrade of an account should be restricted to the Head of Credit or MD/CEO based on recommendation from the recovery unit. The Request for Action (RFA) or CLR reporting format should be used to recommend Provisions, write-offs or released/upgrades. The RU Account Manager should determine the force sale Value (FCV) for accounts grade 6 or worse. Force Sale Value is generally the amount that is expected to realize through the liquidation of collateral held as security or through the available operating cash flows of the business, net of any realization costs. Any shortfall of the Force Sale Value compared to total loan out standings should be fully provided for once an account is downgraded to grade 7. Where the customer is not cooperative, no value should be assigned to the operating cash flow in determining Force Sale Value. Force Sale Value and provisioning levels should be updated as and when new information is obtained, But as a minimum on a quarterly basis in the CLR Following formula is to be applied in determining the required amount of provision:

Gross Outstanding Less: Cash margin held or Fixed Deposits/SP under line Interest in Suspense Account Loan Value (For which provision is to be created before considering








security/collateral held) Less: Estimated salvage value of security/collateral held Net Loan Value

5.2 BCG Matrix:

The Portfolio Matrix is a tool for allocating resources. The portfolio Matrix was

developed by

Boston Consulting Group (BCG), so that it is also called BCG Matrix. It shows the linkages between business growth rate and the market share. Placing products in the BCG matrix results in 4 categories in a portfolio of a company.

Business in the question mark with a high growth rate & weak market share. It usually requires cash investment. In stars business in the high growth rate & strong market share. It use large amounts of cash and are leaders in the business so they should also generate large amounts of cash. In the cash cow, businesses have low growth rate and strong market share. They are usually establish in the market, such as: multinational company. In the dogs, the business has low growth rate and weak market share. This type of business are usually non profitable & generally should be close that business.

In the BCG Matrix Jamuna Bank Ltd, stand in the Stars. Because they have high business growth rate and strong market share. If we see the last 5 years performance, we can see their business growth rate is gradually increasing compare to other leading bank in Bangladesh. For example: Jamuna Bank The Loan and advance department, deposit, foreign trade growing up.

In 2003 loan and advance department portfolio of JBL was 22,257315 and in 2007 that was 36,475.74 million taka. and Jamuna Bank was 16492 in 2003 & 57683 million taka in 2007. And JBL Deposit in 2005 was 27,762.12 and in 2009 that was 47,961.22 million taka. & Jamuna Bank was 20483 in 2005

& 57683 million taka in 2009. In foreign trade JBL opened 18,039 import LCs worth USD 907.08 million and handling export document worth USD 14,369 million in 2009 & Jamuna Banks import was 25441 in 2005 & 70617 million taka in 2009, and export was 16490 in 2005 & 51316 million taka in 2009.

5.3 Loan & Advance Life Cycle: Introduction stage In the Introduction stage, the product is introduced to the market through a focused and intense marketing effort designed to establish a clear identity and promote maximum awareness. Many trial or impulse purchases will occur at this stage. Growth stage This is the second stage of Product Life Cycle. At this stage people know about the product & the demand of the product grows up rapidly & profit also goes up at this stage.

The loan & Advance department of

JBL are now in the growth stage, because JBL introduce

different types of loan such as: Syndicate loan, Project loan, Housing loan, Lease finance, SME, Agri loan etc. If we follow the last 5 years performance of Loan & Advance department we can see the JBL has been able to increase its Loan & Advances despite adverse condition in the domestic as well as in the global economy. The bank recorded growth of 11.51% with a total loan and advances portfolio of Tk 3647.57 crore at the end of December 2009 compare to Tk 3270.97 crore at the end of December 2008. Maturity stage This is the third stage of Product Life Cycle. Arrival of the product's Maturity stage is evident when competitors begin to leave the market, sales velocity is dramatically reduced, and sales volume reaches a steady state. At this point in time, mostly loyal customers purchase the product. But in this stage no one can stay longer. Decline stage It is the last stage of Product Life Cycle. Continuous decline in sales signals entry into the Decline stage. The lingering effects of competition, unfavorable economic conditions, new fashion trends, etc, often explain the decline in sales.

5.5 Analysis of Jamuna Bank Ltd:

Banking is one the most competitive industries of Bangladesh that has seen a huge amount of growth during the last decade. A large number of new banks have made their places in the industry and yet there are more to register in the list. In such a highly competitive service industry, the importance of credit risk management cannot be de-emphasized. Improved risk management system and loyalty gives a firm better base than its rivals and allows it flourish in the industry. All financial activates involve a certain degree of risk and particularly, the financial institutions of the modern era are engaged in various complex financial activities requiring them to put proper attention to every detail.

5.5.1 Credit Assessment: A through credit and risk assessment shall be conducted for all types of credit proposals. The results of this assessment to be presented in the approved Credit Appraisal From that originates from the credit risk manager / Relationship Manager (RM) and is to be approved by the Credit Committee/ Executive Committee of the Board of Directors / Board of Directors. The Risk Manager/ RM is the owner of the customer relationship and must be held responsible to ensure the accuracy of the entire credit application / proposal submitted for approval. The Credit Risk manager/ RMS must be familiar with Bank’s lending Guidelines and should conduct due diligence on new borrowers, principle and guarantors in line with policy guidelines. Credit Appraisal should summarize the results of Credit Risk Mangers /RMs risk: •

Amount and type of loan(s) proposed.

Purpose of Loan(s).

Results of Financial analysis.

Loan structure (Tenor, Covenants, Repayment schedule, Interest).

Security Arrangements.

KYC Concepts: •

The Credit Managers / RM must know their customers and conduct due diligence on new borrowers, principals and guarantors to ensure such parties are in fact who they represent themselves to be i.e., know your Customer (KYC).

The Banker-Customer relationship would be established first through opening of CD/ STD/ SB accounts. Proper introduction, photographs of the account holders / signatories, passport, Trade License, Memorandum and Articles of the Company, certificate of commencement of business, list of Directors, resolution, etc. i.e all the required papers as per Bank’s policy and regulatory requirements are to be obtained at the time opening of the account. A declaration regarding approximate transaction to the account is to be obtained during opening of account. Information regarding business pattern, nature of business, volume of business, etc. to be ascertained. Any suspicious transaction must be timely addressed and brought down to the notice of Head office/ Bangladesh Bank as required and also appropriate corrective measures to be taken as per the direction of Bank Management/ Bangladesh Bank.

5.5.2 Function of Credit Risk Grading:

Well-managed credit risk grading systems promote bank safety and soundness by facilitating informed decision-making. Grading systems measure credit risk and management and examiners to monitor changes and trend in risk levels. 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 borrower or a particular exposure/ facility is rated. The other decision would be related to pricing (creditspread) 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 is the basic module for developing a Credit risk management system.

5.5.5 Collateral Security:


Review frequency (at least) Annually Annually Annually Half Yearly Quarterly Quarterly Quarterly Quarterly

The major functional of the risk managers are to minimize the risk on credit ensure the loan security. Banks accepts two types of facilitya) Primary security - Hypothecation of stocks in trade, Hypothecations of Machineries and equipments etc. b) Collateral security - Land, Building, Ornaments etc. Based on primary security the risk managers recommend for approval of loan. Collateral Security is the secondary security components, loan does not depend on collateral security; it does strengthen the loan security. 5.5.6 Analyzing Financial Spread Sheet: Analyze of financial spreadsheet of a firm / organization for lending is the second major credit risk management system. A Financial Spread Sheet (FSS) has been development by Jamuna Bank which may be used while analyzing the credit risk elements of a credit proposal from financial point of view. The FSS is well designed and programmed software having two parts. Input and Output Sheets. The financial numbers of borrowers need to be inputted in the input Sheets which will then automatically generate the Output Sheets. Various financial ratios are calculated by this software which is given on: Profitability Ratios : Gross Margin Operating Margin Net Margin Return on Equity Return on Paid up Capital Return on Assets (Geared) Return on Assets (Unguarded) Earning Retention Rate Operating Efficiency Ratios : Total Asset Turnover Inventory Turnover Equity Turnover Liquidity Ratios : Stock Turn Over Days Debtors Days on Hand Creditors Days on Hand Cash Cycle Period Current Ratio Quick Ratio Debtors Turnover Net Working Assets to Net Sales Total Short Term Debt Coverage Debt Management Ratios: Leverage Ratio

NPBIT: Interest Net cash after On : Interest Interest on Avg. Financial Debt (%) Debt Ratio Interest Coverage Debt/Lease Service Coverage Growth Ratios Sales Growth Net Profit Growth Total Asset Growth Total Liabilities Growth Gross Profit Growth Sustainable Growth Safety Margin Other Ratios 5.5.6 Findings: From this analysis I got a lot of findings of JBL. These findings are examined to prescribe a set of specific recommendations to improve the overall service quality according to customers expectations and also to solve the existing problems in the whole organizational level. I have the following findings by the analysis: a. Credit Policy: The JBL has introduced a credit policy and credit instruction manual which encompasses all credit risk components as well as mitigate factor of the probable risk . Risk managers have strictly follows the credit policy accordingly to on lending. But the management and the board of the bank have the authority for exceptional credit approval. b. Credit Risk Grading: At the time of risk assessment the risk management are used to obtain an integrated CRG for all corporate and small and medium (SME) customers. c. Insufficient time for risk assessment: The risk management have often insufficient time for credit risk management. Huge workload and hurries for loan approval prevent them from through assessment. So, it is very troublesome to manage the risk in a prudent manner for the risk managers. d. Lack of Training: Training of the risk managers is extremely essential for better risk management. Most of the banks have not any regular training program. Lacks of proper training on credit risk management risk managers often dose the mistakes on credit risk management.

e. Few numbers of tools and techniques for Risk Management: Banks has a few numbers of tools and techniques for credit risk assessment i.e. CRS, FSS, CIB which are not sufficient for all kinds of risk management. f.

Illegal pressure from Political persons, Directors and Management of the Bank: The banks in Bangladesh has faces a lot of illegal pressure from Political persons, Directors and Management of the Bank for approval of loan. In that cases risk managers are bound to approve the loan without any assessment and rationality.

g. Lack of Co-ordination with other related Division: Jamuna Bank has maintains a few coordinations with the related division and departments. Lack of co-ordination caused a lot of suffer of the risk managers as well as the customers. h. Lack of information in the credit proposal: Risk Managers often could not found all necessary documents and information for credit risk assessment. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why risk managers use their assumption on risk management. Data collection checklist is not duly filled by the Relationship Managers. i.

Problems of Financial Analysis: most of the borrower has not audited financials. They provide financial statements which doses not follow the rules of accounting. On the other hand credit proposal has not provided a financial summary. Risk Managers has to go through the financial statement for pick up the necessary ratio. So it is very time consuming.


Limited Security Coverage: Customers has offered limited collateral securities against credit facility. So there is a significant risk for loan defalcation. Bank will may loose In case of defalcation.

k. Limited Insurance Coverage: An insurance coverage should obtain for both funded and non funded credit facility. But reality is very few borrowers confirm their insurance coverage. So Bank has no security in case of any uncertainty like fire, strike, riot etc. l.

Name lending: Some credit proposals unduly influenced by over reliance on the sponsoring principalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation, reported independent means, or perceived willingness to inject funds into various business enterprises in case of need. It is a major risk for the bank. Credit facility should be based on proper assessment.

m. Lack of Customer Banker relationship: Due to centralization of banking systems Jamuna bank has maintain a very week relationship with the valued customer. The customers are very dissatisfied with this worst situation. n. Lack of follow-up and monitoring: Credit quality depends on close follow â&#x20AC;&#x201C;up and monitoring of loans. The follow-up and monitoring of loans is not strong here. As a result Special Mention Accounts and deteriorating credit are increasing day by day.

5.6 Questionnaire Analysis: Aspects relating to reliability dimension of service quality were asked in 12 different questions. Those questions are collected from the Servaqual Parasurance and Zeithnal whose are express best questionnaire for Satisfaction Customer. Here the sample size is 35.

Summery Questionnaire Analysis: The overall results of the survey were average if the total scenario is considered for an average bank. But in terms of JBL, which is a world-class service provider worldwide, the results were highly dissatisfactory. Only 31% of the respondents were highly satisfied and were loyal to the bank. In total, 32% of the respondents were found to be satisfied with the services of the bank. The rest of the respondents were found on the neutral and highly dissatisfied with the bank. This number represents the customers that perceived the bank as inferior. The result showed that a high degree of correlation exists between problem resolution and satisfaction. Based on the above results, it can be said that JBL should reconsider its service strategies in Bangladesh and design products and services that better satisfy customer needs and requirements. Bank should be more tactful in dealing with the customers and launch new products that fully meet customer expectations.

CHAPTER SIX Recommendations and Conclusion

6.1 Recommendation: For effective Credit Risk Management in the Internship report I have a sort of recommends for the Jamuna Bank Limited where I did my Internship program of 3 months duration. I also get some finding and on those finding I has given some recommendation of the banks like Jamuna Bank Limited & Southeast Bank Limited is as follows: a) Introduce an easy Understandable Credit Policy: The Credit of the is Very Complicated. It should be easy understandable and user friendly. So that all the credit concerns can

understand the instruction and it meticulously at the time of credit risk management in the Jamuna Bank limited. b) Improvement of Credit Risk Grading Systems: An industry wise integrated Credit Risk Grading system should be development. So that risk can measure for different industry of business. It also must be improved in the Jamuna Bank Limited. c) Sufficient Workforce & allocate a standard Risk Assessment time: Sufficient risk managers should recruit in Credit Risk Management Division and a standard time should allocate for a credit proposal analysis in Jamuna Bank ltd. So that, Risk Managers could go through the credit proposal for risk managers and have sufficient time for better analysis and assessment. d) Credit Report: In Jamuna Bank Limited Credit report should obtain for all sort of credit proposal. Single credit proposal should not approve without having Clean CIB report from Bangladesh Bank. e) Development & Training: Training is the key factor development of the risk managerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skills. So the Jamuna Bank Limited should have a regular training and development program so that risk managers do know every risk matter and assessment techniques. f) Development of tools and Techniques for Credit Risk Management: Banks has a few numbers of tools and techniques for credit risk assessment i.e. CRG, FSS, CIB which are not sufficient for all kinds of risk management, So new and effective credit risk management tools and techniques should be introduced by the help of IT Division. g) Reduce of Political pressure & influence of the Directors and Management: It is unavoidable of Political pressure & influence of the Directors and Management. So some techniques should introduce in Jamuna Bank so that those pressure and influence should reduce. h) Build Co-ordination with others related Division: Banks moves by a team effort. So strong co-ordination with the related divisions and departments is very important in Jamuna Bank Limited.


Adequate information & Documents: Adequate information and documents should prove in the credit proposal so that Risk Managers of Jamuna Bank can make their decision with a very minimum time.

j) Strong Security Coverage: Adequate collateral security should obtain by the borrower as security. So that in case of bank may save from financial losses. k) Adherence to lending Guidelines: The Credit Application/ Appraisals must be prepared in line with Bank’s lending guidelines. It must be clearly stated whether or not the application/ proposal is in compliance with Bank’s Credit Policy lending guidelines for the Jamuna Bank Limited. l)

Supplier-Buyer Analysis: Any customer or supplier concentration shall be addressed, as these could have a significant impact on the future viability of the borrower.

m) Analysis of Market Risk: The sufficient market data is to be obtained to identify clients/borrowers’ market share in the industry/ demand-supply gap in the market. n) Develop Customer Banker relationship: Today is the time for relationship banking for better performance customer satisfaction is very much important. So, Bank should develop the relationship with the customer. o) Approval Authority: Approval authority should be delegated to individual executives rather than Executive Committee/ Board to ensure accountability. This system will not only ensure accountability of individual executives but also expedite approval process. p) Loan Appraisal Process: JBL Bank is centralized bank. Decentralization of Credit Management and approval authority may enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of loan appraisal process. q) Risk Minimization: In Bank Borrower selection should be more stringent to minimize risk associated with lending. r) Credit product: Credit Product should be increase and categorized in NCC Bank. s) Term & Condition: Terms and condition of credit should be more flexible & easy in JBL Bank.

t) Marketing Credit Products: In Jamuna Bank marketing of credit products should be increase. u) Divisional Activates:

Divisional activates should be more organize in JBL Bank.

v) Name Lending: Credit proposals shall not be unduly influenced by an over reliance on the sponsoring principal’s reputation, reported independent means, or their perceived willingness to inject funds into various business enterprises in case of need. These situations shall be discouraged and treated with great caution. Rather, credit proposals and the granting of loans will be based on caution. w) Industry Analysis (Business and Industry Risk): The key risk factors of the borrower’s industry shall be assessed. Any issues regarding the borrower’s position in the industry, overall industry concerns or completive forces ( demands supply gap) shall be addressed and the strengths and weakness(SWOT Analysis) of the borrower relative to its competition to be identified. For the above purpose the Credit Risk Managers/RM may obtain / collect data from the statistical year book/ economic trends of Bangladesh Bank/ Public report/ newspaper/ Journals etc. x) Adherence to lending Guidelines: The Credit Applications/Appraisal must be prepared in line with Bank’s lending guidelines.

6.2 Conclusion: Bangladesh Bank has introduce a good numbers of circulars, guidelines, tools and techniques for managing the credit risk in a prudent manner as well as to minimize the rate of default/nonperforming loans at a standard level. Banks have also some internal policy, guidelines, tools and techniques for better risk management. Despite a prudent credit approval process, loans may still become troubled.

Risk is inherent in all aspects of a commercial operation; however, for Banks and financial institutions, credit risk is an essential factor that needs to be managed. Risk assessment systems, tools and techniques may help to reduce the risk and can help to develop the quality of credit. Every system has some positive sides as well as to develop the quality of credit. Every system has some positive sides as well as limitations and shortcomings. Therefore, organization goes on some limitation and scopes.

The Success of credit risk management has resulted from dedication, commitment, dynamic leadership, effective strategy, planning and decision making, motivation and controlling of bank’s management, In formulating a credit judgment and making quality credit Decisions, the lending officer must be equipped with all information needed to evaluate a borrower’s character, management competence, capacity, ability to provide collaterals and external conditions which may affect his ability in meeting financial obligations. So, it is obvious that prudent management of these risks is fundamental to the sustainability of a bank. The Internship report of mine encompasses with the existing credit risk management systems, tools and techniques and methodology of the Banks in Bangladesh. The report has taken an effort to identify the problems and limitation of credit risk management systems of Jamuna Bank Limited, Eventually, this report chalks out a sort of findings and recommendation for improvement of credit risk management systems so that bank may attain common standards for credit risk management that’s why classified/ non-performing loans in banking sector may diminish.
