The generalized global policy response²in the form of grand bailout plans funded by larger government debt raised at very low interest rates²could fuel another bubble. which may become a source of risk and concern in future. at the risk of leaving the dangerous impression that risk has been assessed correctly. some mistakes by the management of the Northern Rock and some global conditions had brought the worst conditions for the Bank and it became a historical case for the administrators to be look into it. at the time of crisis and after the nationalization of the bank had been shown with the help of lots of figures in the main body of the chapter which clearly depicted the impact of the crisis on the performance of the bank.6 Key Issues identified from Literature The literature discussed above showed the reasons for this crisis. international rating agencies. The sub-prime crisis revealed that the sellers of insurance against default and the rating agencies jointly could convert poor quality 29 .Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank safe place to put their money. national central banks and regulatory authorities and led them to bring the architecture. At the same time. it was a very wise decision of Bank of England to make the bank nationalized bank. the impacts of the crisis and the management and government decision to make the bank nationalized. given the current status as a nationalized bank which cannot fail. in government bonds and debt. standard international setting bodies for financial sector.

The analysis and conclusion will help to make the recommendations and the conclusion.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank paper into the most sought after financial instruments. This all seems to be very helpful for carrying out the study further where the report is going to deal about the research methods and techniques going to be used for the analysis of this descriptive study. while bonus-driven investment bankers have an incentive to sell these products.

e. i. measuring the number of times someone does something under certain conditions) or qualitative (for example. i. observation and/or experiments. Objective. usually due to time and financial constraints.g. usually encompasses the procedures followed to analyze and interpret the data gathered. representative research can be difficult to conduct because tests can normally only be conducted on a small sample (e. This is called the study design and typically involves research conducted using questionnaires. This means that researchers need to have a very detailed understanding of the types and limitations of research methodologies which they are using. The term research methodology. Part of the research methodology is concerned with the how the research is conducted. A good design should ensure the research is valid. Research methodologies are generally used in academic research to test hypotheses or theories. Ideally. It yields consistent results every time. comprehensive research should try to incorporate both qualitative and quantitative methodologies but this is not always possible. You cannot test a drug on every person in the world so a sample needs to be used in research). interviews. and that the research is reliable. also referred to as research methods. These often use a range of sophisticated statistical analyses of the data to identify correlations or statistical significance in the results.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank Chapter 3 Research Methodology Research methodologies can be quantitative (for example.e. It clearly tests the hypothesis and not extraneous variables. 31 . asking people how they feel about a certain situation).

In the making of this research the data which is used.( Hm Treasury 2007) In this chapter first we will be introduce with the little picture of the research aims and objectives that is why the research has been taken into the consideration.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank Research is thoroughly based on the study on particulars topic. While doing a research it is vital to do it with the past and the future data. It is a structured investigation to find out the solution for the current problem that we are facing. The basic aim for the each and every research is to find some solution and enhance our knowledge based as well. management. There is needed to be unwrapped mentality to do a research. There are two types of research those are primary and secondary. is both type of data primary as well as secondary. 32 . we will come to find out the solution for the northern rock bank with respect to subprime crisis. those are qualitative and quantitative. In today¶s world to take decision various studies are helpful to provide information to us. It is the improvement of technology as well as human intelligence. In this case. The works will be done with the various sources to collect the significant data. To tests the possibility of the solution whatever we found. through the research one can develop novel knowledge. The research which constructed to find out novel problems. it is pre structured known as exploratory research while the constructive research finds solution for the difficulties. Novel techniques are as the solution of existing problem. Before research methodology we have research to know these views of literatures. It can make by applying scientific technique. So we can find the significance of research easily. it is all about searching for knowledge. organization customers and readers as well to have a handle on the causes to adopt the research approaches. This gives several types of themes to get solution for our problem. Research is used to improve existing facts and psychology. Two types of method applied in the research. It will be helpful for the respective persons. This chapter is consists of the method that will be taken to study the difficulties which are coming in the Northern rock bank due to the subprime crisis in the US. It is search for data through research we gather the relevant information. A structured study availed us with the various types of knowledge to get bottom of all operational difficulties. the empirical research used.

REASERCH APPROACH There are research methodologies known as primary research and secondary research. lab experiments. phone interviews and direct observation. With primary research. the views of literature have been taken for the study to explain definite difficulties in the research. surveys and other methods of information gathering. there are several basic ways that data can be collected. There are plenty of ways to get this data. Primary research involves collecting data that does not already exist while secondary research take existing research data and analyzes it. The researcher can then customize how they want the research to go and how long it should take. There are two types of approaches have been taken shoes are quantitative approach and qualitative approach as well. including through questionnaires. After an issue has been identified. Quantitative research gathers data through work in the field. To conduct a perfect research.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank The strategies for the research will be executed in the research and the method of data collection also includes in this chapter. Research approaches are concern with the series in which research has been made and the techniques which have taken place in this specify research. first there is need to examine the entire factor through which researcher becomes capable to give the solution for the problems here. interviews and observations from people participating in the interviews and group sessions. 33 . The advantages of primary research are control over the information that is collected. primary research is used to collect some secondary data after the researcher has gotten a little insight into what the problem or situation is. First is through Qualitative research: Which can include focus groups.

Quantitative research: It is a way to collect data using scientific methods like creating models. but this will give you a rough idea of what it is all about. Qualitative research will helpful to built a model and make the methods to bring the solution of the problem. the techniques and the methods that will be applied in the research are called qualitative approach. This strategy has been used to make sure that the facts and figures have been taken in detailed to make the dissertation. The process can also take a long time since the data must be researched instead of just having secondary data already available. all the data the researcher collects belongs to them. We have gathered the information to analysis the facts and figures. the findings may already be outdated by the time they are derived. Since it takes some time to do the research. those results must be evaluated. The various types of methods are calculated in the research and after the analysis the proper method will be opt. we will come to know the several results and then we have to obtain best method among the all method of investigation. There are also some disadvantages such as cost. In order to find primary data. This study will ensure that the 34 . So it is suggested to use research methodology. the proper technique should be used then only the collected data would be the perfect data. Then the dissertation has some structured method and predetermined technology. It is the collection of empirical data and the modeling and analysis of that data. hypotheses and theories. This is a much more complicated process than what it appears. Generally the data will be collected through the individual RESEARCH STRATEGY: Dissertation has some technology and elements in the research structure. The both approaches will be use full the act against the particular problem. Qualitative data supports the primary data for the study. the research can get pretty expensive. After all the research turns up results. A thoroughly study used to determine the method of sampling and size of sample also taken with full of awareness. When the data will be collected for the research that can be primary data is known as quantitative research. To gather the proper data. After this the research will be executed.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank Not only that. In the research objective has also determined so they can find the approval and conclusion in the easy way. A proper research need to have both type of content.

This research includes the human factor and the characteristics of human is non predictive in nature. ALTERNATIVE RESEARCH STUDY A researcher can use the various sources to find out the result. Because of there are so many factors affecting examination in the BPO segment of IBM. way of 35 . For example there can be survey.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank methodological investigation has been taken to appropriate method of research and then to come on desired result. There are distinct basics of this study. It means there can be many strategies and methods which can be apply in the research. In this research scientific technique has taken place as center of attention. 2009) EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH STRATEGY This is the strategy in which there are several types of circumstances can be obtained to do experiment on. This is fully structured research based on well designed association. The experimental research is not suitable for the topic related with attrition rate.(Charles. structured action etc.

We will analyze the data whatever we have been collected to make decision . to pass information on to others. The method are also specified when we are researching a particular topic. Survey includes either all the people related with the problem or some of the people among them.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank thinking. so we only bring some of the people to conduct a survey. Types of data collection 1-By mail questionnaires 36 . The process provides both a baseline from which to measure from and in certain cases a target on what to improve. The main aim is to find the solution of our problems through the data. DATA COLLECTION It is the course of action to gather the data. they give importance to the relation with people. So the research cannot go with this research. A formal data collection process is necessary as it ensures that data gathered is both defined and accurate and that subsequent decisions based on arguments embodied in the findings are valid. data is collected to provide information regarding a specific topic. But in this case we cannot take the survey of the all people of the Northern Rock Bank.for example as part of a process improvement or similar project. to make decisions about important issues. SURVEY RESEARCH STRATEGY Through the survey we come to now the current scenario related with the study of the specify topic. The purpose of data collection is to obtain information to keep on record. Data collection is a term used to describe a process of preparing and collecting data . the data is need to be analyze and the proper way should be taken to gather the data. Primarily.

Primary data has been made of the individual interviews. this study can give proper description for the causes and effects. (Janet. Here. To get the primary data the method used are qualitative and quantitative methods. sample survey. A sample survey is a data collection method that includes only part of the total population and has advantages. Exploratory research has used to study available data. Descriptive research used to know answers of the questions. A census refers to data collection about everyone or everything in a group or population and has advantages. such as accuracy. questionnaire and group examination. Secondary data is used to support the primary data. The dissertation is also made of exploratory research. The full information can get through the primary and secondary data. it is very necessary to know the fact from them and structured information through the detailed interviews. In this case the study all and all can be classified as descriptive research. Administrative by-product data is collected as a byproduct of an organization¶s day-to-day operations and has advantages. The data can be gathering through primary research method or secondary data research method as well. such as accuracy and detail. time simplicity and disadvantages. This research is also called as statistic research. such as cost and time and disadvantages. it is vital aspect to gather proper data. This will give us whole information in detail. A researcher has to use both of the method to gather the proper data for the research.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank 2-By personal interview. Other main types of collection include census. and administrative by-product and each with their respective advantages and disadvantages. such as no flexibility and lack of control. such as accuracy and detail and disadvantages. In this case. There are two types of sources used in the research. An exploratory research may not make us come to take any decision but it is very helpful to get important review on the given circumstances. what we are searching for. descriptive research used on all and all that can be studied. There are so many limitations also. such as cost and time. To conduct any of the research. 1999) 37 . In this case. But the descriptive research is appropriate for the study. This includes unstructured communication with consumer and management.

Data collection is very important process. In this case published data can be used as the secondary data or the data which have been not published also used in this. Secondary data gathers from the primary data sources and it saves lots of time. Secondary data also has some draw backs. each and every research demands for data. Cost of secondary data will be so less. The primary data is the specify data according to their needs. Here. The researcher needs to gather some of the data with originate. When the researcher gathers the data which is not structured and from the original source then it is called the primary data. Secondary data can be available easily. Secondary data is already structured data. the various sources or tool to gather the data have been described. Analysis is conduct on the data which is collected. Selection of a data collection method is depending on the type of research. Secondary data is used to support primary data. Many times researcher gathers the data from the secondary data sources. the journals and magazines can also use to gather the data for the Northern Rock Bank and the effect of Subprime crisis on it. There is no one who can suggest a particular method. So the research can be conducted with the people who has been affected by this crisis and the management of Northern rock Bank. Some communities or organization works for that type of research. This data may be the data which have been not gathered before. The form can be any type of according to researcher. The records which a firm can bring as the data. Means it has been gathered already by some else and we are going to gathering from them. It will also take much time. Data can be collected through several techniques. That topic can be any type of issue. Normally the common data can be useful in the related research. bureau of public enterprise and census reports and government data will be work as secondary data. the issue is subprime crisis and its impact on the Northern rock bank. So it is vital to gather right data from the appropriate sources. The advantage of the secondary data is that. It can be too costly to search primary data. that the data might be not the latest.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank To study. The primary data has been collected for the particular research topic. it is already structured so there is no need to construct them. In this case. The secondary data can be provided easily for the research. First one has to do comparison analysis among the methods and 38 . Here. These data are structured information that a researcher can use in the research. But sometimes it is vital to do this research.

The focus should be on the subprime crisis and its effect on the bank sector.e. Observation can be conducted directly or indirectly. OBSERVATION Observation is related with the viewing something properly. the analysis can be done. especially on the Northern Rock Bank. (Kvale. The observation method can be very useful method if the research and the observation have been structured. though it is usually more difficult to interview on a meaning level. (McNamara. An appropriate selection of the method is requirement of the research. Observation can be controlled and out of control as well. INTERVIEWS The qualitative research interview seeks to describe and the meanings of central themes in the life world of the subjects. Unlike with mail surveys.g. So the data can be gather for the specify research. the observation can play huge role. The main task in interviewing is to understand the meaning of what the interviewees say. It can start informally.1996) Interviews are particularly useful for getting the story behind a participant¶s experiences. Interviews may be useful as follow-up to certain respondents to questionnaires.1996) A qualitative research interview seeks to cover both a factual and a meaning level. Through the structured observation of the situation in the US can be observed. Observation may have not the particular reason. After seeing the circumstances. In this case. Interviews are a far more personal form of research than questionnaires. the interviewer works directly with the respondent. In the personal interview.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank then the method can be chosen. So the researcher can obtain more than one method to gather the data.. to further investigate their responses. The view has been done for opt something from the situation. But this is not the method just for entertainment. 39 . The interviewer can pursue in-depth information around the topic. the interviewer has the opportunity toprobe or ask follow up questions. (Kvale.1999) IMPORTANCE OF INTERVIEW y y y y Interviews are completed by the interviewer based on what the respondent says.

In the case. especially if what is sought is opinions or impressions. It is two ways communications which have take the place for a particular study. the researcher is interviewer and the respondents are the interviewee. Interview should be focused on the one topic. If there is sufficient time then the individual interviews will take place for more appropriate feedback. If the 40 . D. (Masciandaro. For the qualitative information. The interviews depend on the researcher that what type of interview they want to hold. Interviews also have the one to more than one ratio. But also there can be unstructured question during the interview as per the situation. The interviewer is considered a part of the measurement instrument and interviewer has to well trained in how to respond to any contingency. There can be personnel interview in which the ratio will be one to one.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank y Interviews are generally easier for respondent. It can be structured or unstructured. The respondents give answers according to their past knowledge and future expectation. Interview can be in the form of direct or telephonic. Usually some of the important questions are preplanned but there can be unstructured as well as per the situations. The interview can be formal and informal and it also can be a mixture of both types of interviews. The interview includes answers of the questions and the observation from the signs and the facial expression. When the number of qualified interviewees is in sufficient range then the interview can be conduct. For the interviews the questions have already designed to know desired result. So it is based on the type of research. 2003) Interview can take place in a research as the primary method or the supporting method. y y Interviews are time consuming and they are resource intensive. In this research time is also an important factor. Interviews are same as face to face conversation. It gives quick response from the respondents about their opinion on the problem and the belief on the recommendations. this method is used. It is best method for the research where the respondents are less educated. In the view of some researcher the interview method is better than other methods to gather the data. It is communication between the interviewer and the interviewee. Respondents also interested to be with the oral conversation than the written. It is the vital method to gather the data.

Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank interviewer is intelligent then he can read the face of the respondents and conclude some novel theory. It is conducted when the interest of respondents are common. Then start the interview. When the time is less and interview need to be conducted then the group interview can be hold. We have to prepare question with respect to our topic. A well-designed questionnaire that is used effectively can gather information on both the overall performance of the test system as well as information on specific components of the system. Although questionnaires may be cheap to administer compared to other data collection methods. QUESTIONNAIRE: Questionnaires are an inexpensive way to gather data from a potentially large number of respondents. who has proper knowledge about the issue. The steps required to design and administer a questionnaire include: Defining the Objectives of the survey 41 . record it and close it with thank. Every step needs to be designed carefully because the final results are only as good as the weakest link in the questionnaire process. Often they are the only feasible way to reach a number of reviewers large enough to allow statistically analysis of the results. It is important to remember that a questionnaire should be viewed as a multi-stage process beginning with definition of the aspects to be examined and ending with interpretation of the results. Then make the connection with the respondents. Interview can conduct with the several of modes: Telephonic interview is the time saving method. they can be used to correlate performance and satisfaction with the test system among different groups of users. If the questionnaire includes demographic questions on the participants. they are every bit as expensive in terms of design time and interpretation. Then the researcher should give the introduction of the issue. It can be called the non-personnel method. For the interview process it is necessary to prepare question first.

but the cost of such a questionnaire can be much higher and offset their economic advantage. We can classify data in two ways. Any question must be carefully crafted. the researchers control over the environment will be somewhat limited. Consequently. it is likely that they will be biased towards themselves and answer. of the system or interface in question. In general. such as user satisfaction. however they are not equally suited to measuring all types of data.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank Determining the Sampling Group Writing the Questionnaire Administering the Questionnaire Interpretation of the Results What can questionnaires measure? Questionnaires are quite flexible in what they can measure. For example. For example. quantitative questions are more exact then qualitative. Objective and Quantitative vs. Subjective vs. More elaborate questionnaire design or administration may provide slightly better objective data. the word "easy" and "difficult" can mean radically different things to different people. but in particular questions that assess a qualitative measure must be phrased to avoid ambiguity. A more objective usability test of the same function with a similar group of participants may return a significantly higher learning time. This is why questionnaires are inexpensive to administer. When a questionnaire is administered. if a group of participants are asked on a questionnaire how long it took them to learn a particular function on a piece of software. questionnaires are better suited to gathering reliable subjective measures. This loss of control means the validity of the results are more reliant on the honesty of the respondent. it is more difficult to claim complete objectivity with questionnaire data then with results of a tightly controlled lab test. on average. Questions may be designed to gather either qualitative or quantitative data. with a lower than actual time. Qualitative questions may also require more thought on the part of the participant and 42 . By their very nature. Qualitative.

In general.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank may cause them to become bored with the questionnaire sooner. soundness and time control. we can say that questionnaires can measure both qualitative and quantitative data well. This stage include the methods and procedure. which will give us the analyze data. and interpretation. 43 . And hence this research which will not be towards a perfect conclusion of the opearations of the Bank. Through the research we will come to know the impact of Subprime crisis on the Northern Rock Bank. The qualitative and quantitative data will be helpful to get desired outcome. The data analysed here in this research was meagerly based on the information gathered by the respondents. The research is based on various types of observation.(Roubini. 2009) LIMITATIONS OF METHODOLOGY A good research must have some critical factor those are consistency. administration. but that qualitative questions require more care in design. In the inductive research highly thinking is necessary to get outcomes. STRENGHS OF METHODOLOGY Through the methodology one can come on the facts and figure on form the saw data. It will be difficult to develop the conclusion from the comstomers and the management who might be bias toward their way own view towards the problem of the Bank and the operations. The method should be free of any type of biasness.

Having failed to find a commercial buyer for the business. Along with many other UK building societies in the 1990s. Since 1 January 2010 the Northern Rock name has referred to two companies and a separate asset company. not just by current members. the bank was formed in 1997 when the society floated on the London Stock Exchange. the Northern Counties Permanent Building Society (established in 1850) and the Rock Building Society (established in 1865).

It joined the stock exchange as a minor bank and was expected to be taken over by one of its larger rivals. In June 2011 the bank was officially put up for sale back to the private sector. during the financial crisis of 2007±2010. In 2000. The research questions aimed in this study are as follows: y How the sub-prime crisis had an adverse impact on the operations of Northern Rock Bank? y What were the issues confronting the management at the Northern Rock during the subprime crisis? y What decisions the management has taken to overcome the situation raised due to subprime crisis? y What the suggestions can be put towards management to better handle such type of turbulent situations in the future? 45 . but it remained independent. all the aspects would be shown that have been taken for the research. following problems in the credit markets caused by the US subprime mortgage financial crisis. The chapter analysis and findings includes several types of method with respect to qualitative research which is vital for the study. and as of October 2009 without reimbursement. In doing so the Government effectively took ownership away from its shareholders. neither being able to fully commit to repayment of taxpayers' money. On 1 January 2010 the bank was split into two parts. the Bank sought and received a liquidity support facility from the Bank of England. but was demoted back to the FTSE 250 in December 2007 and later suspended from the LSE due to the bank's nationalization. Here. THE QUESTIONS WITH WHICH WE WILL PREPARE QUESTIONNAIRE It is very important to find out what the research questions are being undertaken in the study.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank loans.

There should be a copy of the original information and it will be better if that would be in the several variables and syntax. Novel characteristics can be suggested through the exploratory data analysis. Here. descriptive and confirmatory. It is the process in which we will convert the incorrect data into the correct one. It can be only when we are on in the first stage of the data analysis that is the entry of the data.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank DATA ANALYSIS: Data analysis is nothing but a process in which we have done the concentrated effort on the transforming. In the data analysis there are levels with all sides of the technique involved in it with the various themes. There is a data analyzing technique that is called data mining. When the data comprises a structured ordered then the primary information can be gathered. It is vital to analyze the data to get the desired result. There can be thoroughly filtering in the process of analyzing the data and the proper center of attention is required for the process. those are exploratory. Through the analyzing we can get the final crux to take the needed decision for the improvement of the Northern Rock Bank. All the information should be held and keep it safely for the future requirement. 46 . Organizational information can be collected through Business intelligence. The originator for the data of the analysis is the data integration. In the data mining technique which is used is not for the explanation only but it focuses on the knowledge projecting. there is a lot of levels to analyze the data. To know the class of the data and find the take out text analytics can be applied. the only objective is just find the appropriate information and analyze them to get proper result. Confirmatory analysis is for the analyzing the hypothesis. With the data analysis we can convert the unorganized data into the organized data and it reveals the data in the information. There are many types of the application.

first there is need to examine the entire factor through which researcher becomes capable to give the solution for the problems here. When the data will be collected for the research that can be primary data is known as quantitative research. Qualitative research will helpful to built a model and make the methods to bring the solution of the problem. To conduct a perfect research. There are two types of approaches have been taken shoes are quantitative approach and qualitative approach as well. The initial analysis is refined of the whole analysis. the views of literature have been taken for the study to explain definite difficulties in the research. In the main data there should be exploratory and the confirmatory approaches. the approaches should be decide before the data is gathered. This is the analysis where the researcher gets conclusion over the questions whatever has been asked. Qualitative data supports the primary data for the study. Here. the techniques and the methods that will be applied in the research are called qualitative approach.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank Initial data analysis and the primary analysis have different features. Main data is the most important data analysis. 47 . the initial draft has made by the this analysis for the research. There must be the proper instrument for the measurement of the quality. Generally the data will be collected through the individual interviews and questionnaire. This includes the excellence of the data. The both approaches will be use full the act against the particular problem. The goal is to take initial data consideration analysis of the research questions. A proper research need to have both type of content. Research approaches are concern with the series in which research has been made and the techniques which have taken place in this specify research.

people were in queue to withdrawn their money. 2007) IMPACT UK bank was not helped to overtake the northern rock.

That was the period where the whole UK banks came for the help of northern rock. the bank had a unforgotten experience. the northern rock had a poor past with respect to loan credibility. Northern rock got important help from Bank of England. People had got a doubt on the feasibility of northern rock.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank Chapter 5 Recommendations & Conclusion During the most three expensive days in 2007. British government has been taken over to the northern rock bank in the year 2008. They were worried about their economy deposited in the bank. The British bank name the northern rock was seriously affected by the crisis had came in US that is subprime crisis. they are ready to sell.Bs. this was full of subprime mortgage bundles so it called building society association. The problem arisen in this year is people had gone their confidence from the asset that is mortgage bank security class. regulatory authority. but at last northern rock b had needed a great amount and in that emergency bank of England helped it out and done the funding . UK bank wanted to give back the ownership to the bank. This was associate with the subprime mortgage is US. But the people had no trust in t he northern rock and people needed safety. It is the difficult scenario for the banks but now northern rock bank 65 . In the 2007 the situation of northern rock bank was exactly. RECOVERY Northern rock bank now starts with retail deposit and they will not stay with takes pair loan money. and financial services authority and from the UK¶s financial government office as well. (Bernanke. With the money market using funding.

Even despite the fact that UK raised its limitation for the compensation for insuring bank. which resulted in subprime crisis and frequent defaults. Information flow from bank to the customers. It 2007 the basel committee which is regulatory for the banking supervision first time whished for a liquidity set. 6. The bank will definitely move forward and will earn profit. the Northern Rock faced lots of deposit problem to meet payments of these large value depositors. The subprime crisis has affected the whole banking industry in England. The major factors are as follows: 1. There was poor liquidity management in part of Northern Rock. There were lots of factors responsible for the crisis. 4. The Northern Rock was not fully focussed on retail savers for generating deposits. 5.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank is requesting and suggesting the a/c holders to say their money in the accounts. The funding was done on the basis of over credit assessment of borrowers. The subprime mortgage resulted in poor assets quality for the banks. (Barr. The main deposits base of Northern Rock has come from large value savers and when the turmoil of subprime crisis started. 2007)The subprime issue was the main reason behind Northern Rock¶s crisis. The committee wished to have observation on each four or six year and it might be controlled the liquidity standard. Due to the issue Northern Bank faced financial crunch and had very tough time to meet payment obligation of high value depositors. The Northern Rock was not having strong operating system and effective communication flow which resulted in delay for providing effective solution to the problem. The time is for beneficial and honorable banking execution. 3. The crisis and issue affected Northern Rock¶s reputation in the market and also decreased its performance and profitability. In this set the bank has to keep or maintained the account with the enough cash to compare sufficient value with the liability. It also resulted in over purchasing and people bought over budgeted home. The problem with Managent efficiency.. 2. A. was withdrawn in a day. Smooth flow of operations. The age group and qualification of the customers. It resulted in run on bank and approx 11% of total deposit base of Northern Rock. During the period full industry was in a big trouble. The Management was also not exactly aware about the various small problems which were there the system which has 66 .

There should be strong flow of effective information to the management and it needs systematic and strategic implementation of effective management policies. The regulators should also ensure that all policies are being followed by the company and no deviation should be permitted. borrowers and share holders. The bank has its presence it International Business wherein documentation and strong flow of information plays a very crucial role. 3. we suggest following recommendation which would be helpful to come out from the problem and also will reduce the chances of crisis in the future: 1. The company should focus on increasing its retail deposit base. thus it also improves profitability of the company. 67 . There should be regular and periodic audit be conducted by the regulatory bodies.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank increased day by day and resulted in the form of crisis. The retail deposits are also a great source of income because the cost of retail deposits is much lower than high value deposits. This will not be possible without implementation of effective business plans and smooth flow of information right from top to bottom level. There should be adequate regulatory policies to protect interest of company. so that the problems can be resolved at the initial level only. Since the company has its presence in international business. It increased level of risk in Northern Rock. The lack of effective regulatory policies was also one of the major factors responsible for the crisis. After the study of various chapter and deep research on the issue. 2. it is very important that all problems to be resolved at the time of their growing stage only. which will bring stability in its overall deposit. The Bank also needs a strong system to monitor the working and progress of its branches. The retail deposits also increases company¶s customer base and company does not have to depend on some large value deposits or getting funds from securitization or from capital market. depositors.

Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank 4. (Masciandaro. There should be a strong department in the company to take care of liquidity position and eagle eye on various global issues going on. Compliance the policies and laws within the company to complement with the outside provisions of the industry. 2003) The company should prioritize all requirements as per importance and accordingly plan to fulfil the same. which will be helpful to achieve company¶s goal in the planned manner. Strategically implementing management measures to ensure that the interests of the bank is secured and the company¶s need to conceptualize and design effective business plans are of primary consideration due to the complex structure of the organization and ever-changing economic environment of the international banking industry. The company should study various effects of the issue on different banks and should also keep a strong watch on the 68 . Since the sub-prime issue is still there. 5. This will ensure better fund management and will also result in improving profitability of the company. The proper resource utilization is also very important to reduce overall costing and being competitive. the company should explore various ways to reduce effect of the issue on the organization. This will ensure better productivity and will also result in improving overall profitability of the company. which can affect company¶s business and profitability. D. All employees should be given work responsibilities according to their potential and skills. The proper and optimum use of available resources is key to success. Identifying priorities will ensure that immediate actions are taken and necessary processes are designed for top priorities. The company should have backup plans to overcome the effect of the various global issues going on.

Since the banking is a very vast industry. the immediate action is taken to eliminate further effect of the issue. We can take example of other countries like India where the reserve bank of India which is The Central Bank. If this issue is not resolved immediately it can damage the whole banking and international financial system. Since in a bank or in a financial institution the company plays with the money of the people. it becomes very important for regulator to take all necessary actions to protect interest of the depositors. it seems too difficult to find out the next effect of the issue or the next turmoil in the international financial system. whether all policies are being followed by the Banks or not and if finds any irregularity. (Roger. Right from giving licence to banks all major policies are made by Reserve Bank of India and all banks have to adhere these policies.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank various plans adopted by other banks to overcome the effect of the issue. The management should also keep this on priority and make various policies to reduce or eliminate the effect of subprime issue. we can say that the sub-prime issue is on very huge level and affecting international financial system. 2009) Finally after conducting the research and seeing result of the study. the same kind of regulation is required in UK also so that the Banking system can be protected from various internal and external issues and improve the health of Banks. The Northern Rock is just a very small part of the sub-prime issue. borrowers. This will help the company to make its plan of action for sub-prime issue. The Reserve Bank of India also conducts periodic audits to see. stakeholders etc. has very good control on all banks running in India. It has become very important to resolve the sub-prime issue at the earliest possible before it becomes out of control. The Reserve Bank of India also keeps an eagle eye of various issues going on in the Indian economy and globally and takes effective measures to protect Indian Banks from being affected from the issue. These also ensure standardization in all the banks of India. The regulators play a very vital role in financial institutions. 69 . Because of RBI¶s better control no such issue like sub-prime is found in Indian Banking system.

The decision of the country to convert the bank into nationalization is the great decision to get the account holders trust back. If once the bank will be successful to the get the trust of the customers. The Northern Rock Bank has to put all their wings in the team work to make customers satisfied. 70 . And the support of the bank of England was the ideal decision not only for the United Kingdom but also for the across the globe. In the Bank there should be good policies for the improvement of the bank and there should be appropriate channels for the flow of the information within the organization and the outside the organization. So we could not stop the crisis but we can get overcome from it.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank It can be best again in the banking industry with some of the efforts related with the improvement of the operations of the bank. Then they will be remain with the bank and will do support in their tough time.

5. 6. Information flow from bank to the customers was not so good. Smooth flow of operations was completely negative. 8.Sub prime crisis and its effects on Northern rock bank Conclusion: 1. The funding was done on the basis of over credit assessment of borrowers. 2. All the problems with management and operations of the bank was analysed and hence bank came up with the conclusion of the nationalization.
