1. 1 Background of the study
Banking system occupies an important place in a nations economy. It plays a pivotalrole in the economic

development of a country and forms the core of the moneymarket in an advanced country. Early banking system served mainly as depositors for

funds, while the more modern system has considered the supplying of credit their main purpose. A Bank not only accepts money or deposits, but it

also lends money andcreates its own credit, Crowther has defined a bank as a dealer in debts- his own andof other people . Sawyers states

, We can define a bank as an institution whose debts(bank deposits) are widely accepted in settlement of other peoples debts to each otherThe

commercial bank has one important characteristic that distinguishes it from allother kinds of financial institutions. This important distinction is that

it alone can holddeposits to be drawn upon by check; it has the power to create and destroy money,within limits, through the use of loans and demand deposits.

Commercial banks lendmoney by creating demand deposits and retire loans by canceling demand deposits.I nternational Finance Investment and

Commerce Bank Limited (IFIC Bank) is a banking company incorporated in the Peoples Republic of Bangladesh withlimited

liability. It was set up at the instance of the Government in 1976 as a jointventure between the Government of Bangladesh and sponsors in the

4. 12 Loan Management Practice of IFIC Bank and guidelines of Bangladesh Bank

Comparing IFIC Banks current loan

management system with Bangladesh Banks guidelinewe see that IFIC Bank lacks some of the best practices in banking industry which can begenerated in the following way

Loan and Credit Policies/ Lending Guidelines: IFIC Bank Limited has no writtencredit policy though it follows some policy. As there is no written credit policy, branch managers sometimes get confused whether

to go with a project or not.IFIC Bank Limited should have a lending guideline available in every branch so thatcredit officers can take quick decision whether to accept or reject a project. Thelending guideline

should include the following- Industry or business segment focus. Types of loan facilities Details of single borrower/ group limit Lending caps Discouraged business type Loan facility Parameters Cross Border risk

Credit Assessment & Risk Grading: Though credit is properly assessed in IFICBank Limited, but there is no risk grading system applied here. It should adopt acredit risk grading system

to ensure account management, structure and pricing arecommensurate with the risk involved.

Approval Authority of the loan: In Bangladesh Banks guideline it is written

thatApproval authority should be delegated to individual executives and not to committees to ensure accountability in approval process. But in IFIC Bank Limitedwe see that every credit goes to

the board via credit committee. As a result, wastage of time occurs and no one is held accountable for a bad loan.

Segregation of Duties:

According to Bangladesh Bank Guideline Banks should aimto segregate the following lending functions to improve the knowledge levels andexpertise in each department:

Credit Approval/ Risk Management

Relationship Management/ Marketing

Credit AdministrationIn small branches of IFIC Bank Limited only single loan

officer do all the jobs like loanmarketing, risk assessing and credit administration.

Internal Audit: IFIC Bank Limited has a segregated internal audit/ control department charged with

conducting audit of all departments as suggested byBangladesh bank guideline.

Preferred Organizational Structure: Currently IFIC Bank Limited does not

followthe preferred management structure as suggested by Bangladesh Bank guideline. Thekey feature in the preferred management structure is the segregation of Marketing/Relationsh

ip function from approval/Risk management/ Administration function.

Approval process: According to Bangladesh Banks best practice guideline,

therecommending or approving executives should take responsibility for and be heldaccountable for their recommendations and approval. The recommended delegatedapproval

authority levels are as follows:

Head of Credit/CRM Executives_________ _Up to 15% of capitalManaging Director/ CEO ______________ Up to 25% of capitalEC/ Board

_________________ ________ All exceed 25% of capitalBut in IFIC Bank Limited we see that every credit proposal goes to Executivecommittee i.e. board.

Figure: F-2: Loan Approval Process of IFIC Bank Limited

Credit and Loan Administration: The Bangladesh Bank guidelines suggest thatCredit administration be strictly segregated

from relationship management/marketin g. As a result the possibility of controls being compromised or issues not being highlighted at the appropriate level can be avoided. The credit administrationhas the following functions-

Disbursement Custodial duties Compliance requirementIn IFIC Bank Limited credit officers under supervision of Branch Credit In-charge or Manager also carry out all the three functions of credit

administration. But CreditMarketing and administration is yet to be segregated.

Loan and Credit Monitoring: To minimize credit losses, monitoring procedures andsystems should

be in place that provides an early indication of the deterioratingfinancia l health of a borrower. Early identification, prompt reporting and proactivemanagemen t of Early Alert Accounts are prime

credit responsibilities of all relationship Managers. An early Alert Account is one that has risks or potentialweakness of a material nature requiring monitoring, supervision or close attention

bymanagement.In IFIC Bank Limited credit monitoring is also done by credit In charge or branchmanagers. As a result Early Alert Accounts do not get that much attention as needed.

Loan and Credit Recovery: According to Bangladesh Bank guideline the recoveryunit (RU) of CRM should directly manage accounts with sustained deterioration.

Credit Risk Management (CRM): Oversight of the banks credit policies, procedures and controls relating to all credit risks arising from corporate/comm

ercial/institutional banking, personal banking, & treasury operationsis called credit risk. Credit Risk management is handled by Credit approval Authority,Internal Auditors, Relationship

Management/Marketi ng (RM), Credit AdministrationDepart ment etc.

Incentive Program for loan: The BBk guideline also encourages Banks to introduceincentive

programs for the Recovery Unit Account Managers to bring down the NONPerforming Loans (NPLs) IFIC Bank Limited currently has no incentive program as itdoes not have any Recovery Unit.

Chapter SixConclusion and Recommendatio ns

6. 1 Conclusion

A banker can not sleep well with bad debts in his portfolio. The failure of commercial banksoccurs mainly due to bad loans, which occurs due to inefficient management of the loans andadvances

portfolio. Therefore any banks must be extremely cautious about its lending portfolio and credit policy. So far IFIC Bank Limited has been able to manage its credit portfolio skillfully and kept the classified

loan at a very lower rate. But all things around us are changing at an accelerating rate. Today is not like yesterday andtomorrow will be different from today. Given the fast changing, dynamic

global economyand the increasing pressure of globalization, liberalization, consolidation and disintermediation , it is essential that IFIC Bank Limited has a robust deposit and loanmanagement

policies and procedures that are sensitive to these changes.

6. 2 Recommendation s
To improve the Deposit and loan Management

culture, IFIC Bank Limited should adoptsome of the industry best practices that are not practiced currently. These are:

ATM Card/Credit card facility should be increased not only in Dhaka and

Chittagongcity but also in all over the country.

More branches should be established to compete with other commercial banks.

IFIC Bank Limited should have a clear

written lending guideline that should includeIndustry and Business Segment Focus, Types of deposits and loan facilities, SingleBorrower and group limit, Lending caps, Discouraged Business Types, Loan

FacilityParameters and Cross boarder Risk.

It should adopt a credit grading system and the borrowers risk grades should beclearly stated on credit application.

Approval authority should be delegated to individual executives rather thanExecutive Committee/ Board to ensure accountability. It should has the followings:* Credit Approval / Risk Management* Reltaionship

Management / Marketing Management* Credit Administration etc.

The organization structure should have to be changed to put in place the segregationof the Marketing/

Relationship Management function from Approval / Deposits andLoan Management / Administration function.

An Early Alert Account system should be introduced

to have adequate monitoring,supervisi on or close attention by management.( An early Alert Account is one thathas risk and potential weaknesses of a material nature)

There should be a Recovery Unit to manage directly accounts with sustained deterioratio n. To encourage Recovery Unit incentive program may also introduced.

To minimize credit loan losses, monitoring procedures and systems should be in place that provides an early indication of the deteriorating financial health of a borrower.

Timely corrective action should be taken to address findings of any internal,external or regulator inspection/audit.

Development of the standard of living of the limited income

group by offeringconsumer credit scheme should be brought.

It is needed to boost up mobilization of savings both from urban and rural areas.

Model of participatory banking should be developed.

It is needed to develop competitive, most modern scientific and social welfareoriented banking institution on the country.

To ensure stability and sound growth while enhancing the value of shareholdersinvestme nt.Above all the Bank should ensure a high level of transparency and ethical standards in alloperations and a congenial atmosphere

which will attract competent work force. It should besocially responsible making effective contribution to national development.
