2.Overview of Banking



The banking sector of Bangladesh played an important role towards economic growth of the country. In recent years Central Bank took strict measures to check unauthorized overseas transaction through enacting Anti Money Laundering Act, amending “Artho Rin Adalot Ain” and strengthening supervision by Central Bank to bring transparency in the banking sector. These timely steps have made the banking operations more transparent, acceptable and modern. As a result the image of banking sector has been elevated.

Bangladesh Bank also identified five core risks areas for management of the banks and provided necessary guidelines for implementation. Those are Foreign Exchange Risk Management, Asset Liability Management, Prevention of Money Laundering, Credit Risk Management and Internal Control and Compliance. This initiative will bring in overall discipline in this sector and enhance operational profit.

.Whoever being an individual firm, company or corporation generally deals in the business of money and credit is called bank. In our country, any institution which accepts for the purpose of lending or investment deposits of money from public, repayable on demand or otherwise, with transferable by checks draft order or otherwise can be termed as a bank.

The purpose of banking is to ensure transfer of money from surplus unit to deficit units. Banks of all countries work as the repository of money. The owners look for safety and amount of interest for their deposits with Banks. Entrepreneurs try to obtain money from the banks as working capital and for long-term investment. These entrepreneurs welcome effective and forward-looking advice for investment. Banking sector thus owe a great to the deposit holders on the hand and the entrepreneurs on the other. They are expected to play the role of friend, philosopher, and guide for the deposit holders and the entrepreneurs.

Since liberation, Bangladesh passed through fragile phases of development in the banking sector. The nationalization of banks in the post liberation period was intended to safe the institutions and the interest of the depositors. Those handling the banking sector have borne the burden of putting banks on reliable footings. Despite all that was done, some elements of irregularities appeared. With the assertion of the role of the Central bank, The Bangladesh bank started adopting measures for putting banking institutions on right track. Yet the performance of public sector management of banks left some negative effects in the money market in particular and the economy in general. The agility among the borrowers manipulates the banking sector as a whole. In effect, a default culture appeared on the scene.

The opening of PRIVATE and FOREIGN participants to the banking sector was intended to obtain desirable results from banking. The authorization of private banks was designed to create competition among the banks and competition in the form of efficiency with and the productivity in enterprises funded by banks. Unfortunately, for the people, at large banking sector is yet to obtain the credit for efficiency, credibility, and growth.

2.1 The Banking Arena in Bangladesh

The Banking Sector of Bangladesh comprises of four categories of scheduled banks. These are-

· Nationalized Commercial Banks (NCBs).

· Government Owned Development Finance Institutions (DFIs).

· Private Commercial Banks (PCBs).

· Foreign Commercial Banks (FCBs).

Private Commercial Banks are again divided into three categories- First Generation, Second Generation and Third Generation.

(i) Nationalized Commercial Banks (NCBs):

In general terms; NCBs are large, operationally inefficient and technically insolvent. They are used as vehicles of government directed lending. These banks enjoy an enormous and stable customer deposit base, which provides a cheap source of funding. In addition, most large government related business is routed through these banks.

(ii) Private Banks-1996:

Six new licenses were granted. These are the better-managed banks with strong capital base and good asset quality and under a much-improved regulatory regime. All the banks clustered in this group have successfully raised capital from secondary market and all the shares are now traded in the stock exchange at premium.

(iii) Private Banks-1998:

Set up to service the sectors not being addressed by the larger NCBs. Not subject to state directed lending but have generally suffered from related lending to directors and their extended families.

(iv) New Private Sector Banks:

Ten new banks have been granted licenses over the year 1999. While some bankers complained that the country is over-banked, the more commonly held view, including that of the World Bank, is that there is adequate scope for these banks to survive given currently untapped gaps in the market, fat in existing interest margins (currently circa 5%), and efficiency/ service level disparities. It is estimated that up to 70% of the Bangladeshi economy remains un-banked. While this appears to imply that the newer banks may move downstream in terms of asset quality but in reality the last two sets of new banks are successfully competing with NCBs and Foreign banks on the top end market segment.

Generally asset quality is poor with the level of non-performing loans at worryingly high levels. Across the whole banking sector, classified loans, as reported by Bangladesh Bank (BB) in December 2002, the Central Bank, were 34.93%. As a percentage of their own total loan portfolio, non-performing loans accounted for 38.55% of the NCBs loan book, and 22.01% of private banks (both categories). In October 2002, the provisioning requirements changed for past due loans from 180 to 90 days, now requiring a 20% provision. Generally, provisioning levels are weak, impairing capital. It is however necessary to understand why the banks carry such high levels of non-performing loans. Firstly, the legal position of banks’ recourse is weakened once a loan is written-off; and secondly, BB imposes a six-year moratorium on write-offs. As the legal system is slow and time consuming, this results in NPBs remaining on the books for longer than would otherwise be the case in other countries. There is also a significant proportion of NPBs, which is due to non-payment by Government or Government owned agencies.

Lower credit growth in 2002, compared to deposits, has meant that the banks now have excess liquidity. With investment rates in call, money market and government bonds remaining static at their lowest levels, some banks are now cutting back on their long-term deposit rates and are refusing to accept large deposits.

Long-term interest rates have traditionally been lower than short-term rates. This inverted yield curve is a fall out from the source of long term lending. Long term lending was traditionally extended by the NCB’s, usually for non-commercial loans, thus setting a low benchmark for longer-term funds.

However care should be exercised when taking comfort from BB’s assertion that it will not allow any bank to fail. While this pledge has held true to date, in effect it means that BB will allow a technically insolvent bank to continue in operation with BB guidance and “Technical” support but BB will not provide a capital injection or write-off government related bad loans.

2.2 Origin of the Bank:

EXIM Bank Limited was established under the rules and regulations of Bangladesh Bank and the ‘Bank companies act. 1991’ in 1999 under the leadership of Late Mr. Shahjahan Kabir, founder chairman who had a long dream of floating a commercial bank which would contribute to the socio-economic development of our country. He had a long experience as a good banker. A group of highly qualified and successful entrepreneurs joined their hands with the founder chairman to materialize his dream. In deed, all of them proved themselves in their respective business as most successful star with their endeavor, intelligence, hard working and talent entrepreneurship. Among them, Mr. Nazrul Islam Mazumder became the honorable chairman after the demise of the honorable founder chairman.

This bank starts functioning from 3rd August, 1999 with Mr. Alamgir Kabir, FCA as the advisor and Mr. Mohammad Lakiotullah as the Managing Director. Both of them have long experience in the financial sector of our country. By their pragmatic decision and management directives in the operational activities, this bank has earned a secured and distinctive position in the banking industry in terms of performance, growth, and excellent management. The authorized capital and paid up capital of the bank are Tk. 1000.00 million and Tk 313.87 million respectively.

Export Import Bank of Bangladesh Limited started its operation as one of the third generation bank but within a short span of time it has become one of the leading and most successful bank not only among the third generation banks but also it superseded many other banks and financial institutions belonging to second and even first generation banks from the point of view of its excellent business performance, extraordinary corporate culture and strong team work under the dynamic leadership of its Management. The Board of Directors has always been very much conscious as to the policy making and framing of strategy of the bank which is being implemented by the Management through its strong workforce comprising skilled human resources having great zeal and excellent team spirit. Transparency, accountability and integrity accompanied by honesty and utmost sincerity are the key factors behind its success. Both the Board and the Management are transparent like crystal clear. EXIM Bank believes that there is no short cut way to achieve the success and as such only hard work can bring the success.

The bank has migrated all of its conventional banking operation into Shariah based Islami banking since July, 2004 following the decision taken unanimously in the Extra Ordinary General Meeting held on December 28, 2003. Obtaining confirmation from the honorable High Court Division of Bangladesh Supreme Court, the Bank had been converted into a full-fledged Islami Bank based on Shariah from traditional interest based banking and at the grace of Almighty Allah the Bank started functioning as an Islami Bank with effect from July 01, 2004 with the approval of Bangladesh Bank. Before conversion the Bank put option to all of its valued customers through news media in addition to personal contact with them to accept the decision taken by the Bank. It’s a great pleasure that everybody gladly accepted the conversion with appreciation. It is something new in the history of Islami Banking. Because, in so far my knowledge goes, there may be establishment of some Islami Banks since inception at the time of their incorporation. Someone may also experience to see some traditional Banks having a few branches based on Shariah. But total conversion of a conventional Bank into a full-fledged Islami Bank is, perhaps, for the first time is introduced by Export Import Bank of Bangladesh Limited in the World.
