The officials interviewed included the HOCCD (Head of Credit and Control Division), Head of Liability Operations, different managers, executives and high officials.
1. 2. 3: Limitations
During my orientation I am able to learn a lot of things but still it was not enough. There are some limitations that I can’t ignore. The main limitations were:
§ The time span was not sufficient enough to learn all the activities of the organization properly. Therefore, it was very difficult to carry out the whole analysis.
- Data unavailability was the constraint. Official documents on the detail activities of the department were not available.
- For business secrecy confidential information, which could have enriched this report could not be given.
- I was There Placed For Three month But In Working days I had to spend all days for organizing there customer undertaking so I couldn’t get enough time for collecting data for my internship report.
- The organization is very conservative about there information, collecting primary data was very heard for me. So I have to prepare most of the part of my report based on secondary report.

non performing loan has been further reduced from 4.5% in 2009 and 3.62 % in 2010
to 3.07% in 2011, mainly through strengthening of the credit and collections teams

The company had to relay mainly on profit retention to support enhanced capital requirements arising from asset growth, capital adequacy. The Bangladesh Bank adoption of Basel II accord for NBFI from January 01, 2012 is also likely to exert added pressure on companies capital adequacy.

In 2011 operating revenue grew 58% to reach BDT 3027 million against the year
Though the amount of BDT million increase in 2011 but the growth shows that there is negative growth in percentage in 2010 to2011, here the growth is 58% but the previous year growth is 62% which indicated that the operating expenses also increased.

reduced against 2007 to 2008. But from 2009 it is again with positive growth.

Return on share holders’ equity rose to 43.64% with a growth of 2.59% and 2011 it is the largest percentage on five financial years. And it is undoubtedly good sign for the company. This positive growth means shareholders got their optimize return on their capital.

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. Risk is an integral part of financing business.

Major risks that IDLC identifies detrimental to its return and market reputation is as follows:
Credit risk is the possibility that a borrower or country party will fail to meet agreed obligations. Thus managing credit risk for efficient management of a financial institution (FI) has become the most crucial task. 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 producers those are sensitive and responsive to these changes. At IDLC, credit risk may arise in the following forms:
- Default risk
- Exposure risk
- Recovery risk
- Country party risk
- Related party risk
- Legal risk
- Political risk
Market risk refers to the risk of fluctuation in a variety of markets such as interest rates, prices of securities where the values of assets and liabilities can change and there exists the risk of incurring losses.
Liquidity risk arises when a company is unable to meet the short term obligation to its lenders and stakeholders. This arises from the adverse mismatch of maturities of assets and liabilities.
Operational risk is the potential loss arising from a break down in company’s system and producers, internal control, compliance requirements or corporate governance practices that results in human error, fraud, failure, damage of reputations, delay to perform or compromise of the company’s interests by employees. Operational risk may also arise from the following:
Turnover of trained stuff;

- Rivalry among the existing firms.

6.1.1: Operational Performance of IDLC During 2011
The Company’s diversified operations and subsidiary saw a handsome growth during the year 2011. SMEs in Bangladesh have been making a significant contribution to the country’s economy. However, there is large gap between their needs and access to reasonably priced fund. Under this backdrop, they have taken an initiative to aggressively increase investment in this segment, in a structured manner to cater to the financing needs to small and medium sized business enterprise. IDLC’s SME focused branches have strengthened its financing activities in this growing sector of the country.
As a part of business expansion, during 2011, they opened several branches across the country which, we believe, will contribute significantly to the management’s effort for increasing SME clients at that mobilization in that region to increase their business and provide better services to their SME clients at that region. They have also planned to set up more Branches in different locations of the country during the year 2011.
They believe that setting up of these branches will help us to generate business volumes from SME markets which are mostly untapped by us, establish their permanent presence in different areas, give faster service delivery and cross selling opportunities of all their other financial products and services. Setting up of these branches, they believe, will also broaden their deposit mobilization effort.
The mode of financing of SME Division of IDLC includes lease, term loans, short term financing through factoring, bill discounting, etc. During 2011 SME Division has disbursed BDT 2,712 million against BDT 1,820 million in 2010 showing a robust growth of 63%. As on December 31, 2011 the SME asset size of the Company stands at BDT 4,144 million compared to BDT 2,544 million at December 31, 2010.

The year end asset of the division stands at BDT 4,638 million. As the corporate financing continued to face stiff competition from commercial banks as regard to the pricing, they are focusing more on other financing where return is comparatively better to increase the overall value for shareholders. The Personal Finance Division of the Company deals mainly with real estate finance and also provides personal and car loans to some very selective clients. During 2011, this division disbursed BDT 2,439 million compared to BDT 2,066 million in 2010. The total asset portfolio of the division at the year end stands at BDT 6,611.

During the year under report, their company disbursed BDT 150 million against previous year’s disbursement of BDT 148 million. This operation has, however, earned revenue of BDT 56.09 million during the period. This business is facing enormous competition from commercial banks, which are able to offer lower rates and spend large amounts of money on aggressive marketing campaigns in conjunction with a large sales force and branch network. They provide car loans to very selective and mostly clients having other business relationship with them.
6.1.4: Merchant Banking Operation
During 2011, IDLC’s merchant Banking Operation earned BDT 1,314 million in revenues, which is a hefty 61% higher than the previous year.

The management of IDLC finance ltd should review their systems, policies, processes and product prices in line with the changing market reality. The institution should explore of high quality products and services to attract its potential market and diversity of products is important.
More trainingshould be conducted for the employee to improve their analytical ability and professional standard regarding the use of tools and techniques in selecting the borrowers and analyzing the loan proposals.
Authority should be delegated to the lower level with adequate measures for the necessary control and follow-up for making the lending decision and recovery. One proper standard procedure should be developed for all types of clients and no interpersonal relationship should be involved in approving a loan.
Interest income occupies the major part of the total earnings of a financial institution and the profitability mainly depends on interest earning capacity, so they should establish a research and development cell for the purpose of lending analysis and recovery of loans.
In reducing magnitude of classified loans, the system of credit appraisal needs to be strengthened through developing comprehensive borrower rating system.
