History of Allied Bank of Pakistan Allied Bank Limited was the first bank to be established in Pakistan.

It started out in Lahore by the name Australasia Bank before independence in 1942, and then it was renamed Allied Bank of Pakistan Limited in 1974 and then Allied Bank Limited in 2005. In August 2004, because of capital reconstruction, the Bank¶s ownership was transferred to a consortium comprising Ibrahim Leasing Limited and Ibrahim Group. ABL was established in Lahore before independence in 1942 Allied Bank Limited is one of the largest banks in Pakistan with more than 700 Branches connected to an online network. In August 2004 the Bank was restructured and the ownership was transferred to Ibrahim Group. Overview Allied Bank was the first Muslim bank to have been established in Pakistan. Established in December 1942 as the Australasia Bank in Lahore with a paid-up share capital of Rs. 0.12 million under the Chairmanship of Khawaja Bashir Bux, the Bank attracted deposits equivalent to Rs. 0.431 million in its first eighteen months of business. At the time, the Bank¶s total assets amounted to Rs. 0.572 million. Today, Allied Bank's paid up Capital & Reserves amount to Rs. 10.5 billion, deposits exceed Rs. 143 billion and total assets equal Rs. 170 billion. The Bank¶s journey has been about dedication, commitment, professionalism and adapting to environmental changes, leading to its immense growth and stability. It is these factors that have made it a Bank the rest look up to. A view of Khawaja Bashir Bux's Residence. The first branch of Australasia Bank. Khawaja Bashir Bux¶s Residence >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>



The Pre Freedom History In the early 1940s the Muslim community was beginning to realize the need for the active participation in the field of trade and industry. The Hindus had since the late 1880s established a commanding presence in industry, trade and commerce in the undivided Sub-continent. Banking, in particular, was an exclusive enclave of the Hindus and it was widely believed, and wrongly so, that Muslims were temperamentally unsuited for this profession. It was particularly a hard thing to swallow for Khawaja Bashir Bux to hear that ³Muslims could not be successful bankers´. He decided to respond to the challenge and took lead in establishing this first Muslim bank on the soil of Punjab that was to become Pakistan in December 1918; by the name of Australasia Bank Limited. The initial equity of the Bank amounted to Rs 0.12 million, which was raised to Rs 0.5 million by the end of first full year of operation, and by the end of 30th June 1947 capital increased to Rs. 0.673 million and deposits raised to Rs 7.728 million. Australasia Bank Australasia Bank was the only fully functional Muslim Bank on Pakistan territory on August 14, 1947.It was severely hit by the riots in East Punjab. The bank was identified with the Pakistan Movement. At the time of independence all the branches in India, (Amritsar, Batala, Jalandhar, Ludhaina, Delhi and Agra) were closed down. New Branches were opened in Karachi, Rawalpindi, Peshawar, Sialkot, Sargodha, Jhang, Gujranwala and Kasur. Later its network spread to Multan & Quetta. The Bank financed trade in cloth and food grains and thus played an important role in maintaining consumer supplies during riot affected early months of 1948. Despite the difficult conditions prevailing and the substantial set back in the Bank¶s business in India, Australasia Bank made a profit of Rs 50,000 during 1947-48.



By the end of 1970 it had 101 branches. Unfortunately it lost 51 branches in the separation of East Pakistan. The bank did well despite losing lot of its assets. By the end of 1973 the bank had 186 branches in West Pakistan. Allied Bank (1974 to 1991) In 1974, the Board of Directors of Australasia Bank was dissolved and with the union of Lahore Commercial Bank and Sarhad Bank it was renamed as Allied Bank. The first year was highly successful one: profit exceeded the Rs 10 million mark; deposits rose by over 50 percent and approached Rs 1460 million. Investments rose by 72 percent and advances exceeded Rs 1080 million for the first time in bank history. 116 new branches were opened during 1974 and the Bank started participation in the spot procurement agriculture program of the Government. Those seventeen years of the Bank saw a rapid growth. Branches increased from 353 in 1974 to 748 in 1991. Deposits rose from Rs 1.46 billion, and Advances and investments from Rs 1.34 billion to Rs 22 billion during this period. It also opened three branches in UK. Allied Bank (1991 to 2004) As a result of privatization in September 1991, Allied Bank entered in a new phase of its history, as the world¶s first bank to be owned and managed by its employees. In 1993 the ³First Allied Bank Modaraba (FABM)´ was floated. After privatization, Allied Bank registered an unprecedented growth to become one of the premier financial institutions of Pakistan. Allied Bank¶s capital and reserves were Rs. 1.525 (Billion), assets amounted to Rs. 87.536 (Billion) and deposits were Rs 76.038 (Billion). Allied Bank enjoyed an enviable position in the financial sector of Pakistan and was recognized as one of the best amongst the major banks of the country. In August 2004 as a result of capital reconstruction, the Bank¶s ownership was transferred to a consortium comprising Ibrahim Leasing Limited and Ibrahim Group.

it depends on the customer that which product he likes and in which sector he wants to 81. It has more than 735 branches connected to each other through an online network and most of the branches are working at the main business points. Strength and weaknesses are the internal factors of the organization and these are also known as the micro factors but the opportunities and threats are the external factors and these are known as the macro factors. So to reveal the hidden factors I did a SWOT analysis of the Allied bank. According to this theory. So.9(5. of Branches Allied bank has maximum number of branches in all over Pakistan. STRENGTHS Large No. they have to know about their strength and weaknesses.SWOT Analysis SWOT is the abbreviation of four words these are ³S´ stands for strength ³W´ stand for weaknesses ³O´ stands for opportunities and ³T´ stand for threats. It is not the SWOT analysis of ABL as a whole but only of the branch where I worked. Variety in Products Allied Bank has many products for almost all type of customers. Micro factors are the controllable factors but the macro factors are uncontrollable.67<2)7+(381-$% 62 . Then they have to find out their opportunities and then they come to know about their threats but according to the latest theory the word SWOT is known as WOTS. The easiest way to know about any organization is the SWOT analysis. Many aspects are same almost in every branch of the Allied bank. then they get knowledge of their opportunities that they have in the particular sector and then they have come to know about their competitors and at the last they think about their strengths. first of all the organizations know their weaknesses. Whenever the organizations come into a form.

Because whenever some transactions take place. ATM and Credit cards. Online Facility Allied bank is providing the facility of online banking. TT. Secure Banking The online banking feature provides less chances of fraud. to prevent illegal acts. Moreover.9(5. online transfer.

Rupee Traveler cheques are the main products available for customers. This center also provides the facility to the customers on spot and helps them whatever the matter is. the person who transfers any amount submits his copy of NIC to the bank. They have toll free numbers on which customers can dial and they have not to pay anything for it. Customer Care Center Allied bank has customer care center for its customers.67<2)7+(381-$% 63 . DD. It also gives the companies the facilities of collection accounts.

If something goes wrong then the manager can buzz the security alarm immediately. Secure Environment Cameras are installed in all the branches of the bank to ensure security of its customers and employees. These cameras are switched on all the time.9(5. The customers may also open their accounts in foreign currency. the head office provides them with the fax facility of daily rates of foreign currency. Paid Leaves For employees the relaxation is that the employees may get the 36 medical leaves and 1 month vacation in one year with their pay in case of some emergency.Foreign Exchange Allied bank provides the facility of foreign exchange to its customer. Account Opening an Easy Process At Allied bank it¶s very easy to open an account just an introducer and a copy of NIC is required. Same Account Number Facility At Allied bank the customers the person who has more than one account can have the facility of the same account number only the suffix is changed. Customer just needs to fill up account opening forms and can 81. Cameras are installed in front of the cash counters. The branch manager can see all the activities while sitting in his office on a display monitor. Also security guards are available throughout the day. To get the latest rates.67<2)7+(381-$% 64 . The customers may get the facility of money exchange on the current rates. The bank provides the facility of letter of credit and other export/import facilities to its customers. This facility provides the customer with easy remembering of the account number.

WEAKNESSES Incentive Systems Most of the staff in the Allied Bank is not completely satisfied with the inducements. an inefficient manager or employee is earning the same as an efficient employee who is the real asset for the organization 81. some other person will back him up. This thing invites the customers to do a business with ABL. Low rate of Interest Allied bank offers loans to its customers on very low rates.9(5. This thing enhances its performance very much by facilitating its customers and also by helping colleagues and sharing workload. permanent staff is not given any performance related incentives.enjoy the facilities of any type of account the want. Supportive Environment The staff of the ABL is very much cooperative. Moreover. This dissatisfaction sometimes leads to less motivated employees in banking which in turn can affect its business efficiency. Employee¶s Replacement In every branch of Allied bank the back up of every employee is there in case of emergency if some officer is not available at the bank.67<2)7+(381-$% 65 . As a result of this. This is the strength of Allied bank facilitates all of its customers. That person is always well familiar with the responsibilities of that officer.

67<2)7+(381-$% 66 . This thing leads to the dissatisfaction of employees.9(5.Increment in Workforce¶s Pay The other main weakness of the Allied bank is that there are mostly no annual increments to their employees¶ salary. Truth must be said. Low Product Credibility Allied Bank has still not got the edge where the consumers become loyal to its products and services. most customers do not even know the points behind the term ³interest free days´. The point is. If it enters this market then this bank can become the biggest and the most efficient bank of Pakistan. The banking sector is improving day by day and consumer banking is making great revolutions in the banking sector. And talking about consumer banking. OPPORTUNITIES The Allied Bank is having a great opportunity to emerge as the best bank of the country by giving best possible services to its customers. Allied Bank is still working in the corporate sector and it¶s missing a big market share of consumer banking. Late Promotions The other thing that for the employee¶s point of view is a weakness in Allied bank is that the employees are promoted after a big period against the schedules specified by the bank. Mostly customers become its customers out of no reason than request from a personal banker. though credit cards awareness in our middle class society has gradually improved but not up to the point where they can compare the features that one Bank is offering and other is not. consumers do not know of the product being offered so how can they rely on the product. 81.

y Approach towards employees is still bureaucratic and a lot is to be done in this regard.Recommendations and Suggestions During my stay at ABL. shortage of training and development facilities. Due to this overall performance of the bank also decreases. It should convert their system to an automated one to better achieve its targets and also to take the advantage over its competitors. I found some problems that were creating problems in achieving targets and objectives y The bank is still depending on manual work to a great deal which causes slow performance and increases the chances of mistakes. favoritism in appraisals and lack of sufficient incentives are some problems that are arising dissatisfaction among employees. In the new era this feature counts a lot to any organization. Late promotions.9(5. 81. The bank working beside this branch was attracting more customers due to this factor also.
