Islami Bank, 6518 SCB, 12150 AB Bank, 5897 BRAC Bank, 3717 Prime Bank, 13759CHAPTER-4: My Work Experiences at SCB As an intern I started my internship program at Standard Chartered Bank form October 10th in Transaction Banking department, which is a part of Wholesale banking under the directed supervision of Mr. Maruf Ahmed. During my internship I have performed duties that are assigned my by supervisor. Through out my internship program I performed many tasks that enriched my practical knowledge.

Brief descriptions of my duties are given below: TB financial Reporting: From the Wholesale Banking Balance sheet I used to repare the TB financial update report every day. In Transaction banking (TB) department, individual employee deals with individual corporate customer. Some customer use over draft, trade loan, fixed loan, revolving loan or go for different kinds of deposits like saving account, custody call or fixed deposit, so for this reason TB department assigned me to prepare report on Daily Assets, Contingent and Liability Balance. I used to prepare it on excel sheets and all the instructions were provided by them. After that I used to prepare a summary report.

E-procurement Reporting: SCB Transaction Banking department buy different types of hardware, software and stationary from various vendors. Sometime they buy it on credit. So when any claim used to come for the payment I had to upload that claim into the MIS of SCB by mentioning the name of vendor, vendor code, number of items, item id, price, purchasing date, payment date so that the accounts department can see that and make necessary steps to pay the due. Visa Fees Collection: Standard Chartered Bank is the only bank in Bangladesh that collects DV visa fees.I had an experience to work at SCB DV immigration Visa Fee Collection centre for 7 days when I was shifted to Gulshan North branch. There I had to instruct customers, how to fill up the deposit forms and keep a record of it.

And every day after 4. 00 pm, I had to count all deposits form, recheck it and prepare mail so that the manager, Mr. Muraad Pasha, can mail it to the US embassy. Summary of Bank statement: Sometime customer of TB wants to know the total amount credited or debited from opening date to present date to a particular account. But SCB bank statement contains account information for one year.

So to provide this information in case of those accounts that are maintained more that one year, couple of time I had to prepare summary of bank statement in an excel sheet. To do that SCB employee helped me to get the excess of individual transaction of a particular account and than I copy all the credited or debited amount according to the request of customer and made an excel sheet so that my supervisor can mail it to the concerned account holder. Salary of Different Local Organization: Different Corporate customers have different types of accounts in SCB and through those accounts they pay alaries, bonuses, commission, and overtime to their employees and worker. So every month I hade to make an excel sheet mentioning organization name, type of account, account number, amount of salary, bonuses, or commission is paid, number of worker getting salary, bonuses or commission and their name. Utilization Report: Standard Chartered Bank’s letter of credit gives its client’s assurance when they are dealing with unfamiliar suppliers.

As the transaction banking (TB) department of SCB deals with corporate clients, so they need to maintain a proper record of the flow of letter of credit among corporate clients.SCB every year gives a limit in letter of credit amount for their corporate clients. As an intern of TB I used to prepare a utilization report two or three times a week that sums up how much limit for letter of credit has been used by different corporate clients up to that specific date. Letter writing: I had an experience of writing letters to 200 local organizations including Independent university Bangladesh regarding SCB’s Short Notice Deposit (SND) Account. Lastly, I had an experience of doing photocopies, printing, organizing files, scanning, and arrange meeting rooms for my supervisor and my department.

Chapter 5: Problems Identified Even though the financial condition of Standard Chartered Bank is improving every year and it is going strength to strength, but there is always room for improvement. During my three month internship I identified few problems and Weaknesses of SCB witch can lead them to lower profitability. These problems are listed below: ? SCB has more and high fees and charges compared to its rivals. Such as minimum balance fee, ledger fee etc. As a result, Standard Chartered Bank is not being able to attract new customers as rapidly as rivals due to certain attributes of their product/ service packages. Long cues, non – functioning ATM machines or very few number of ATM are notable weaknesses as well.

? Another important issue for Standard Chartered Bank is their lower interest rate for all depository account compare with all local banks. This creates a negative image for customers for opening an account for higher income. ? SCB is heavily dependent on Head Office for decision making. I think they should decentralize their decision making process by giving more decision making power to other branches operating in Bangladesh. ? SCB has fewer branches than its domestic competitors do.

For instance, SCB has only 26 branches in Bangladesh whereas Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited has 176 branches in Bangladesh. ? Not enough promotional activities. SCB should promote their product and services more so that individual and corporate customer can know more about it. ? Most of the Branches are situated are urban areas. As a result SCB has not that much good market share like other local banks.

I think they need to adopt a strategy of establishing few branches in rural areas and providing services according to their needs. ? In today’s world, Human Resource Department is considered as vital department for an organization.Despite being a multinational bank, SCB has only 12 employees in their Human Resource Department in Bangladesh. These employees are bound to recruit, training of around 1300 employees of SCB Bangladesh. This is really inadequate and risky in the management especially for a foreign bank. 5.

1 Recommendation Consumer banking industry has been treated as a prospective financial sector in Bangladesh. More and more banks and non-bank financial companies are entering in the industry. The industry became so attractive that multinational bank like The Standard Chartered Bank has entered the market and wants to lead the market.However, the entrance of banks like SCB has brought revolutionary changes in banking services. They are helping people to get loans and investing money into diversified portfolios.

Sophisticated services like ATM, phone Banking etc. has been brought by this new generation banking. Standard Chartered Bank is such an organized bank that there are very few things to recommend them. There are a number of renowned bankers in every department who are continuously working to improve the service quality. Their product development team launches attractive financial products each year to pull away customers from the competitors.According to my analysis Standard Chartered Bank is better in almost every respect from the other foreign banks.

Nevertheless, some of the recommendations for better performance might be: Control of non-interest expenses To maintain the quality, Standard Chartered Bank incurs comparatively higher amount of noninterest expenses. They can cut down the cost in some areas. For e. g. the envelope they use is a costly one.

They can use it for correspondence purpose but for normal transaction purpose they can use the brown envelope. For internal office purpose they can use normal paper instead of offset paper.Reduction of charges Single most important thing to attract the customer for Standard Chartered Bank is to reduce the charges. There is an existing perception prevails in the customers’ mind that this bank charges illogically higher service charges. For e. g.

if a customer wants to issue a credit card he might choose Prime Bank’s credit card because the charges for a silver Master card is Tk500 per year whereas at Standard Chartered Bank the charge for same is Tk1,000. Lease financing They can start lease financing since it is now one of the profitable financial services. There are customers who prefer lease to avoid taxes.Prime, DBBL, Premier has lease financing scheme which is a very profitable one. Standard Chartered Bank can invest in transport sector or they can provide lease for capital machinery’s to their corporate clients.

Few Branches SCB has fewer branches than its domestic competitors do. For instance, SCB has only 26 branches in Bangladesh whereas Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited has 176 branches in Bangladesh. SCB also has lower no. of ATM booth than that of Brac Bank, DBBL. Chapter 6: Conclusion Now a day business does not mean just selling and purchasing the products or services.

This is very important to conduct the business in an organized and effective manner. Now questions arise that how we can make this business process effective. Advertising can be a bigger solution in this sector. More then that maintaining a satisfactory level of customer satisfaction might make the whole selling process a lot more progressive. As we all know in the business world things move on the will of Impression.

Standard Chartered is the world’s one of the best leading Bank’s. And it the duty of this Bangladesh corporate office to hold that same image and continue with the Business.To enrich and maintain a better reputation is the only solution to make a business more progressive. As this is a global Bank and more appropriate to say these entire Bank’s product is being sold globally, so this should be very much likely that Bangladesh Corporate office should also maintain the same image and continue with the Business. Standard Chartered Bank definitely satisfies their corporate customers and to maintain this scenario in a more efficient and prospective manner the Bank can surely accept this project in a cordial manner.
