RETAIL BANKING

Concept of Retail Banking

Retail banking is a banking service that is geared primarily toward individual


consumers. Retail banking is usually made available by commercial banks, as
well as smaller community banks. Unlike wholesale banking, retail banking
focuses strictly on consumer markets. Retail banking entities provide a wide
range of personal banking services, including offering savings and checking
accounts, bill paying services, as well as debit and credit cards. Through retail
banking, consumers may also obtain mortgages and personal loans. Although
retail banking is, for the most part, mass-market driven, many retail banking
products may also extend to small and medium sized businesses. Today much
of retail banking is streamlined electronically via Automated Teller Machines
(ATMs), or through virtual retail banking known as online banking.

DEFINITION OF RETAIL BANKING

Retail banking is typical mass-market banking where individual customers use


local branches of larger commercial banks. Services offered include: savings
and checking accounts, mortgages, personal loans, debit cards, credit cards, and
so forth.
Banking Dictionary: Retail Banking

Banking services offered to the general public. Retail banking services are a
group of financial services that includes installment loans, residential
mortgages, equity credit loans, deposit services, and individual retirement
accounts. In contrast with Wholesale Banking or corporate banking, retail
banking is a high volume business with many service providers competing for
market share. Some retail banking services, for example, credit cards, are
among the most profitable services offered by financial institution. retail
banking is typical mass-market banking where individual customers use local
branches of larger commercial banks. Services offered include: savings and
checking accounts, mortgages, personal loans, debit
cards, credit cards, and so forth.

13
Types of Banking

· Commercial bank has two possible meanings:


o Commercial bank is the term used for a normal bank to distinguish it
from an investment bank. (After the great depression, the U.S.
Congress required that banks only engage in banking activities,
whereas investment banks were limited to capital markets activities.
This separation is no longer mandatory.)
o Commercial bank can also refer to a bank or a division of a bank that
mostly deals with deposits and loans from corporations or large
businesses, as opposed to normal individual members of the public
(retail banking).
· Community development bank are regulated banks that provide financial
services and credit to underserved markets or populations.
· Private banks manage the assets of high net worth individuals.
o Offshore banks are banks located in jurisdictions with low taxation
and regulation. Many offshore banks are essentially private banks.
· Savings bank accept savings deposits.
Postal savings banks are savings banks associated with national postal systems.

MARKETING

Concept of Marketing from the difference between the Sales and Marketing.
The Marketing Concept was born out of the awareness that the business should
start with the determination of consumer wants and end with the satisfaction of
those wants. business cycle. It stipulates that any business should be organized
around the
marketing function and its task should be one of anticipating, stimulating and
meeting customers’ needs. The customer, anticipating, stimulating and meeting
customers’ needs. The customer, not the corporation, has to be the centre of the
business universe. A business can’t succeed by succeed by supplying products
and services that are not designed to serve the needs of the customers.

14
As P.F. Drucker says, The Marketing Concept has four major distinguishing
features:
Consumer Orientation-

An overwhelming emphasis on the consumer and his need is the first


distinguishing of the marketing concept. The concept enables the firm to look at
business from the point of view of the consumer. The importance of the
consumer can be seen clearly in the following words of Drucker: “ The purpose
of any business is to create a customer. It is the customer who determines what
a business is. It is the customer who determines what a business is. It is the
customer and he alone, who, through being willing to pay for a good service,
converts economic resources in to wealth, things into goods. What a business
thinks it produces is not of first importance- especially not to feature of the
business and to its success.
What the customer thinks he is buying- what the considers value, is determines
what a business is, what it produces and whether it will prosper”.
Integrated Management, with Marketing as the Fulcrum:
Integrated management here means that all the different functions of the
business must be tightly integrated with one another, keeping marketing as the
pivot. This is essential because every function has a bearing on the consumer
and the aim is to see that all the functions make a favorable impact on the
consumer. For this to happen, all functions have to be integrated and properly
aligned with marketing.

Consumer Satisfaction:

Integrated management action explained above, is a means, not an end in itself.


It is the means for fulfilling the needs of the consumer. And this leads us to the
third major distinguishing feature of the marketing concept, namely, consumer
satisfaction. The marketing concept emphasis that it is not enough if a firm has
Consumer orientation, it is essential that such an orientation leads to consumer
satisfaction.

15
Realization of All Organizational Goals, Including Profit
Consumer satisfaction too, is not an end in itself. The marketing concept does
not preach that a firm must generate consumer satisfaction and forgot its own
interests.
Instead, it teats consumer, satisfaction as the pathway to the attainment of the
goals of the organization. The undergoing approach is: If a firm has succeeded
in generating consumer satisfaction, it implies that the firm has given a quality
product, offered competitive price and prompt services, and has succeed in
creating good image.
Marketing as is known deals with all those processes required to put the
products in the hands of the ultimate consumer. On Marketing a pithy
definition has been given by the Father of Marketing Management Philip
Kotler as “Marketing is the delivery of the consumer satisfaction at a profit.”
Thus one of the essential parameters that judge the effectiveness of marketing
exercise is the effect it has on the organization’s bottom.”

ABOUT AXIS BANK

Axis Bank was the first of the new private banks to have begun operations in
1994, after the Government of India allowed new private banks to be
established. The Bank was promoted jointly by the Administrator of the
specified undertaking of the Unit Trust of India (UTI - I), Life Insurance
Corporation of India (LIC) and General Insurance Corporation of India (GIC)
and other four PSU insurance companies, i.e.
National Insurance Company Ltd., The New India Assurance Company Ltd.,
The Oriental Insurance Company Ltd. and United India Insurance Company
Ltd.

the first to receive an 'in principle' approval from the Reserve Bank of India
(RBI) to set up a bank in the private sector, as part of the RBI's liberalization of
the Indian Banking Industry in 1994. The bank was incorporated in August
1994 in the name of 'HDFC Bank Limited', with its registered office in
Mumbai, India. HDFC Bank commenced operations as a Scheduled
Commercial Bank in January 1995.
The last twelve years have been very fulfilling. We can of course wax eloquent
about it in so many ways, but they say, figures don't lie, so we will let the
figures do all the talking. They will give you a fair idea of how we have grown
in the past few years.
HDFC Bank began operations in 1995 with a simple mission: to be a "World-
class Indian Bank". We realized that only a single-minded focus on product
quality and service excellence would help us get there. Today, we are proud to
say that we are well on our way towards that goal.

an Indian financial institution, and was its wholly-owned subsidiary. ICICI's
shareholding in ICICI Bank was reduced to 46% through a public offering of
shares in India in fiscal 1998, an equity offering in the form of ADRs listed on
the NYSE in fiscal 2000, ICICI Bank's acquisition of Bank of Madura Limited
in an all-stock amalgamation in fiscal 2001, and secondary market sales by
