Bank is an institution that deals in money and its substitutes and provides other financial services. Banks accept deposits and make loans and derive a profit from the difference in the interest rates paid and charged, respectively. Banks are critical to our economy. The primary function of banks is to put their account holders' money to use by lending it out to others who can then use it to buy homes, businesses. When you deposit your money in the bank, your money goes into a big pool of money along with everyone else's, and your account is credited with the amount of your deposit. When you write checks or make withdrawals, that amount is deducted from your account balance. Interest you earn on your balance is also added to your account. Credit & Credit Risk The word credit comes from the Latin word “Credo” meaning “I believe”. It is a lender’s trust in a person’s/ firm’s/ or company’s ability or potential ability and intention to repay. In other words, credit is the ability to command goods or services of another in return for promise to pay such goods or services at some specified time in the future. For a Bank, it is the main source of profit and on the other hand, the wrong use of credit would bring disaster not only for the bank but also for the economy as a whole.


Figure Classification of Credit Risk Risk Management Risk Management system and its application in practice is an important part of the bank management. In order to implement the system -based banking through appropriate risk management system, the Bangladesh Bank has circulated Five Core Risks Management Best Practice Guidelines- Internal Control & Compliances, Credit Risk Management, Foreign Exchange Risk Management, Asset Liability Management and Prevention of Money Laundering. Under only the credit risk management system as practiced in OBL is outlined below: Credit Risk Management Credit Risk management is one of the main functions of Bank/FI management. The Credit Risk Management System of OBL is still at its primary stage. Although the bank has adopted the best practice guideline suggested by Bangladesh Bank, it is yet to be made operational to a great extent. If any loan exceeds the discretionary power of any base line authority, it goes to the Executive Committee/Board. The product pricings are still not based on risk mapping. OBL is still to develop and implement sophisticated system based risk management system which is essential to cope with changing environment. Credit Risk management is crucial for commercial banks, be it in developed or developing countries. Mere accumulation of deposits gives rise to entries both in liabilities and assets sides of the balance sheets. So, portfolio management involves in both liability and assets of commercial banks. If deposits of a bank grow at a steady rate and if loan demands can be met from deposit growth, the bank will have no problem of liquidity. In real life, deposits do not grow steadily all the time, nor does loan demand grow in keeping with growth in deposits. Fund management, which is the central point of portfolio management, thus involves estimating deposit liquidity needs and loan liquidity needs in most efficient manner possible. The objective of the credit risk management is to maximize the performing asset and the minimization of the non-performing asset as well as ensuring the optimal point of loan and advance and their efficient management. Credit risk management is a dynamic field where a certain standard of long-range planning is needed to allocate the fund in diverse field and to minimize the risk and maximizing the return on the invested fund. Continuous supervision, monitoring and follow-up are highly required for ensuring the timely repayment and minimizing the default. Actually the credit portfolio is not only constituted the banks asset structure but also a vital factor of the bank’s success. The overall success in credit risk management depends on the banks credit policy, portfolio of credit, monitoring, supervision and follow-up of the loan and advance. Therefore, while analyzing the credit risk


management of OBL, it is required to analyze its credit principals, credit policy, credit procedure and quality of credit portfolio. Credit Risk Management is a very modern & important concept now-a-days for the Bankers of modern age. As for the mainstream work in process of the Bank, every one keeps a personal credit policy for management of the credit portfolio and future marketing aspects. The credit policy of any Bank is very confidential and full of strategic tools for Relationship Managers of the Bank. This is written and compiled by the Head of CRM (Credit Risk Management) and other top credit analyst of the Bank. This is the procedural guideline of the Bank officials to marketing, disbursement, manage & monitor credit portfolio of the Bank. Credit Department of One Bank Limited At first I have been placed in the Credit Department at ONE Bank Ltd. KawranBazar Branch. Credit department performs the critical functions of a bank. One of the primary functions of commercial banks is the sanctioning of credit to borrowers. Bank credit is a catalyst for bringing about economic development. Without adequate finance there can be no growth or maintenance of a stable output. Bank lending is important to the economy, for it makes possible the financing of agriculture, commercial, and industrial activities of a nation. At the same time, a bank will, therefore, distribute its funds among various assets in a manner as to derive sufficient income. Types of Loans and Advances Offered By OBL OBL offers following types of loans and advances,• Secured Overdraft (SOD) • Loan (General) • House Building Loan (Staff) • Demand Loan • Transport Loan • Industrial Credit • House Building Loan (General) • Transport Loan (Staff) • Cash Credit (Hypothecation) • Past Due Bills • Loan against Trust Receipt (LTR). Credit Principles of OBL In our quest for maximizing the stakeholders’ value by establishing OBL as fundamentally sound financial institution, we will abide by the following ten credit principles which should always guide our behavior in our lending decisions: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

Assess the customer’s character for integrity and willingness to repay Only lend what the customer will have the capacity and ability to repay Plan for the possibility of default Only extent credit where we can sufficiently understand and manage the risk Ensure independent credit participation in the credit process Behave ethically in all credit activities Be proactive in identifying, managing and communicating credit risk


8.

Be diligent in ensuring that credit exposures and activities comply with OBL requirements 9. Optimize risk and reward 10. Build and maintain a diversified credit portfolio Credit in general sense means an act of allowing person / person immediate use of money with payment deferred until an agreed future date. Bank is highly levered firm. It collects money from different types of deposit and utilizes this money for different purpose. Loans and advance is one of the most important and fruitful area to utilize money. A sound credit is one where timely repayment is assured. So, before giving financial accommodation, a banker should consider the source from which repayment is promised. In some instances, debentures, which are to be redeemed in few months time or a life policy, which is to mature in near future, may be offered as security. An advanced against such security gives to trouble. The central function of all banks is to collect deposits from surplus economic unit, and to lend those on deficit spenders. Both the surplus unit and spenders belong to real sector of the economy. Bank credit is catalyst for bringing about economic growth or development & without adequate finance there can be no growth or maintenance of actable output. So bank lending is important to the economy, for it makes possible financing of agriculture, commercial and industrial activities of a nation. At the same time a bank will, therefore, distribute its funds among different assets in a manner as to derive sufficient income.

In terms of volume the number of loan applications received are shown on table below, Table: Loan Amount Received Form Applicant

Sources: ONE Bank Limited The loan application received in terms of volume varies a little from the number of loan applications received. The loan applications received were much higher in 2008 than it was in 2007 and 2008 although it increased its growth rate was not as high. The loan applications that have been received are not all approved. Some of these are approved while others are declined which can be observed from table 4.6.

The rest of the loan applications are declined as they fail to pass the loan evaluation criteria set by the bank which has already been discussed. The declined loan applications are those which are not approved by the Central Compliance Unit (CCU) as they fail to meet the loan evaluation criteria set by the bank.

Source: ONE Bank Limited We can see in the table that the performance of personal loan appraisal policy was good for the years.

Growth Rate of Loan and Advance Growth rate (GR) is the fractional rate at which the amount of loan & advance increases or decreases. Specifically, GR ordinarily refers to the change in loan & advance over a unit time period, often expressed as a percentage of the amount of loan & advance at the beginning of that period. This can be written as the formula:

Figure Growth rate of Loan & Advances Figure According to the data and the above figure it obvious that FY2008 year was generated highest loan and advance but in FY2009 the wheel became slow down. So the growth rate of 2009 is not satisfied and it may also increase the market risk and as well as credit risk in the future. Interest in Income


Figure Interest in Income (2009) Figure This graph show proportion of income that are generated from loan and advance, Discount from bills, purchased & discounted, Lease Finance and interest income from banks & other institutions in Bangladesh. The highest proportion of income in interest is coming from Loan and Advance in BDT million 3980.75 which is 94% of total income in interest, 3% interest from Lease Finance, 2% income from banks & financial institutions in Bangladesh and only 1% income come from discount from bills purchased & discounted. Loan Ratio The loan ratio indicates the extent to which assets are devoted to loans as opposed to other assets such as cash, securities, and plant and equipment. It measures what is the percentage of loan and advance portion out of the total assets of the Bank. Although loan and advance usually is the biggest part of the assets of the balance sheet of any commercial banks. But if the loan and advance is large then the credit risk is also high because chances of not getting the money bank are higher in loan investment then the investment in securities. Because securities, plant, equipment can provide a certain return with very minimum risk. But default risk in loan investment is very high. So a bank, which has high amount of provision for loan losses, should not expand its loan portfolio without proper consideration of all the factor of loan sanctioning. Loan ratio=


Loan Ratio From the above table it can be observed that the percentage of total loan out of the total assets of One Bank is fluctuating and in FY 2009 the loan ratio is downward. In FY 2008 is generated more Loan assent around 73.36% of total asset. Credit Deposit Ratio It is the proportion of loan-assets created by banks from the deposits received. The higher the ratio, the higher the loan-assets created from deposits. Some experts contend that a high credit-deposit ratio could lead to a rise in interest rates. Credit deposit ratio=


Figure 7.4 Credit Deposit Ratio From the Figure, it is found that from year of 2005-2008 credit deposit ratio was increasing but in 2009 it has been decreasing slowly. This ratio also shows the decreasing rate of loanasset created by deposit and also indicating the increasing of business risk of credit. Default rate This indicates the bad loan as a percentage of total loans and advances. It measures that how much bad loan a commercial bank is carrying. Bad loan is the loan, which has almost no chance of recovery. So bad loan should not be very high for any bank. If the amount of bad loan is very high the ratio of bad loan to total loan will be high. If it is higher than the peer group it means that the competitors have better quality of loan portfolio.

Figure 7.5.1 Default Rate It is observed that more 90% is recovered and this is the trend of default rate of the OBL. From the above table it is observed that percentage of bad loan of One Bank ltd. is slightly decreasing. Profit after tax


7.6.1 Profit after Tax According the figures Profit after tax is increasing slowly in five years in One Bank Limited. In FY 2005 it was 302.83 and FY 2009 it is increased at 727.62 BDT million. Statement of OBL Karwan bazar Branch 2009’ Name of Loan

A banker cannot sleep well with bad debts in his portfolio. The failure of commercial banks occurs mainly due to bad loans, which occurs due to inefficient management of the loans and advances portfolio. Therefore any banks must be extremely cautious about its lending portfolio and credit policy. So far ONE Bank Limited has been able to manage its credit portfolio skillfully and kept the classified loan at a very lower rate - thanks go to the standard and stringent credit appraisal policy and practices of the bank. It is observed that OBL  In practice, Credit Principles and Policies are being implemented which resulted the better credit management.


 Delegation of Power is almost concentrated on Executive Committee which makes approval process slower.  Responsibilities of the Officials sometimes not clearly specified.  No separate Recovery Unit formed yet.  Lack of proper MIS due to IT system.  From the figure 7.1.1 it is seen that the growth rate of 2009 is not satisfied and it may also increase the market risk and as well as credit risk in the future.  From the figure 7.3.1 it can be observed that the percentage of total loan out of the total assets of One Bank is fluctuating and in FY 2009 the loan ratio is downward.  From the Figure 7.4.1, it is found that from year of 2005-2008 credit deposit ratio was increasing but in 2009 it has been decreasing slowly. This ratio also shows the decreasing rate of loan-asset created by deposit and also indicating the increasing of business risk of credit.  It is observed that more 90% is recovered and this is the trend of default rate of the OBL. From the above table it is observed that percentage of bad loan of One Bank ltd. is slightly decreasing.  According the figures Profit after tax is increasing slowly in five years in One Bank Limited. Recommendation Though OBL, Principal branch is making a huge amount of profit and generating a large volume of deposit, a number of problems have been observed, they may consider the following suggestions:  Need to speed up processing of loan application but give more importance to monitoring and screening. The procedure of credit facility has to be reduced, to compete with other commercial banks.  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 the approval process.  Expand their export business for more export financing to minimize the difference between export & import financing.  Information system should be more developed. Bank should increase the usage of Internet for local and international correspondence. Computer division needs to be up dated and extensive for the greater welfare of the branch.  There should be a Recovery Unit to manage directly accounts with sustained deterioration. To encourage Recovery Unit incentive program may also introduced.  Geographical distribution of Loans to be more even so that OBL can contribute more in the development of rural economy. Conclusion Since the banking service especially the private Banks are doing an outstanding business, so it is clear that the modern people are more concerned about securing their valuable assets and get high-quality and timely services. For this reason lot of new commercial bank has been established in last few years and these banks have made this banking sector very competitive. So, now banks have to organize their operation and do their operations according to the need of the market. Banking sectors no more depends on a traditional method of banking. In this competitive world this sector has trenched its wings wide enough to cover any kind of


financial services anywhere in this world. The major task for banks, to survive in this competitive environment is by managing its assets and liabilities in an efficient way. The ONE Bank’s philosophy - "We Make Things Happen" has been precisely an essence of the legend of success in the Asian countries. The bank has proved to be successful by offering quality and timely services to its customers. The employees of ONE Bank are very efficient; everyone knows their work very well and can perform efficiently to produce the best output. The bank has plans to open more branches to expand their network. They are also playing a significant role in the import and export of Bangladesh. Especially ONE Bank has more import business than its rivals. If this bank can concentrate on import business, it will give the opportunity to circulate the profit more rapidly than other sources. Besides these ONE Bank should also increase the export business. If the Bank can reduce the difference between imports financing to export financing, bank can make more profit and gain achievement. With the current performance of the Bank and with little improvement here and there will certainly make ONE Bank one of the best Private Bank in Bangladesh in the near future. Bibliography
