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.

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.

9(5. So. Many aspects are same almost in every branch of the Allied bank. STRENGTHS Large No. It is not the SWOT analysis of ABL as a whole but only of the branch where I worked. The easiest way to know about any organization is the SWOT analysis. So to reveal the hidden factors I did a SWOT analysis of the Allied bank. 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.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. According to this theory. Variety in Products Allied Bank has many products for almost all type of customers. Whenever the organizations come into a form. it depends on the customer that which product he likes and in which sector he wants to 81. 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. 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. of Branches Allied bank has maximum number of branches in all over Pakistan. 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. Micro factors are the controllable factors but the macro factors are uncontrollable.67<2)7+(381-$% 62 . they have to know about their strength and weaknesses. first of all the organizations know their weaknesses.

Rupee Traveler cheques are the main products available for customers. 81. This facility allows a customer to send or deposit money through cash or cheques to an account of any other branch of ABL. This center also provides the facility to the customers on spot and helps them whatever the matter is. TT. the person who transfers any amount submits his copy of NIC to the bank.

DD.9(5. they can be checked any time and their receipts are receipts are given to the customers. ATM and Credit cards. They have toll free numbers on which customers can dial and they have not to pay anything for it. Online Facility Allied bank is providing the facility of online banking. It also gives the companies the facilities of collection accounts. It also gives the facility of balance inquiry and cash with drawl from a certain account of any other branch of ABL through cheques. Secure Banking The online banking feature provides less chances of fraud.67<2)7+(381-$% 63 . Because whenever some transactions take place. online transfer.

If something goes wrong then the manager can buzz the security alarm immediately. The bank provides the facility of letter of credit and other export/import facilities to its customers. Cameras are installed in front of the cash counters. The customers may get the facility of money exchange on the current rates. These cameras are switched on all the time.67<2)7+(381-$% 64 . The branch manager can see all the activities while sitting in his office on a display monitor. The customers may also open their accounts in foreign currency. Also security guards are available throughout the day. To get the latest rates. 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. Customer just needs to fill up account opening forms and can 81. This facility provides the customer with easy remembering of the account number. 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.9(5.Foreign Exchange Allied bank provides the facility of foreign exchange to its customer. Secure Environment Cameras are installed in all the branches of the bank to ensure security of its customers and employees. 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. the head office provides them with the fax facility of daily rates of foreign currency.

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

This thing leads to the dissatisfaction of employees. The banking sector is improving day by day and consumer banking is making great revolutions in the banking sector. consumers do not know of the product being offered so how can they rely on the product. If it enters this market then this bank can become the biggest and the most efficient bank of Pakistan. 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. 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. Low Product Credibility Allied Bank has still not got the edge where the consumers become loyal to its products and services. Allied Bank is still working in the corporate sector and it¶s missing a big market share of consumer banking. Mostly customers become its customers out of no reason than request from a personal banker.9(5. Truth must be said. 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. 81.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. most customers do not even know the points behind the term ³interest free days´.67<2)7+(381-$% 66 . The point is.

Muslim Commercial Bank.THREATS Competitors Allied Bank has the threats from their competitors in the banking sector. Faysal Bank.

The policies of the new government 1. which still is capturing by ³Hundi´. The biggest threat in the banking to uplift the economy and pursue sector is the continuous downfall of financial sector reforms are expected to the country economy since the last yield positive results in the banking few years. As the situation of Frontier Province of Pakistan is not sound and ratio of dacoity cases in branches is high so it is the big threat to the Bank.

Recommendations and Suggestions During my stay at ABL. So the administration of the bank should think on this aspect also and make these conditions better. Late promotions. y Approach towards employees is still bureaucratic and a lot is to be done in this regard. shortage of training and development facilities. In the new era this feature counts a lot to any organization. The bank working beside this branch was attracting more customers due to this factor also. y Outlook of the branch I worked for was not good enough. 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. 81.67<2)7+(381-$% 72 . It should convert their system to an automated one to better achieve its targets and also to take the advantage over its competitors. Due to this overall performance of the bank also decreases.9(5. favoritism in appraisals and lack of sufficient incentives are some problems that are arising dissatisfaction among employees. I tried to observe the environment profoundly.
