There are different opinions that how the word „Bank‟ originated. Some of the author‟s
opinion that this word is derived from the word „Bancus‟ or Banque‟, which means a
bench. The explanation of this origin is attributed to the fact that the Jews in Lombard
transacted the business of money exchange on benches in the market place; and when
the business failed, the people destroyed the „bench‟. Incidentally the word „Bankrupt‟s
said to have evolved from this practice.

Some of the authors are of opinion that the word „Bank‟ is derived from the German
word back, which means „joint stock fund‟. Later on when the German occupied major
part of the Italy the word „Back‟ was italicized into „Back‟.

Definitions of Bank

"A financial institution, which deals with money and credit. It accepts

Deposits from individuals, firms and companies at a lower rate of

Interest and gives at higher rate of interest to those who need them.”

A financial establishment which uses money deposited by customers for investment,
pays it out when required, makes loan at interest, exchanges currency, etc.

J.W Gilbert in his principles and practice banking defines a banker in these words:

“A banker is dealer in capital or more properly, a dealer in money. He is intermediate
party between the borrower and the lender. He borrows of one and lends to another”.

                                                                                      Page 4

These are payable to the customer when ever they are demanded. When a banker
accepts a demand deposit, he incurs the obligation of paying all cheques etc, drawn
against him to the extent of the balance in the account. Bankers in Pakistan do not allow
nay profit on these deposits, and customers are required to maintain a minimum
balance, failing which incidental charges are deducted from such accounts.

money, and the depositor is issued a cheque book for withdrawals. Profit is paid at a
flexible rate calculated on six monthly bases under the Interest Free Banking System.

the bank‟s earnings. It is striving to market new clients and retain the existing relationships
and build market share through offering superior services, competitive pricing and wide
product range to valued corporate clients.

Commercial & Retail Banking

NBP has the largest retail client base in the country with one of the highest retail portfolios.
The bank‟s retail strategy focuses on its extensive branch network and leveraging the
customer base. In 2009 however due to the high interest rate environment and pressure
due to non performing loans, the consumer advances registered decline.

Despite an ailing economy and adverse macroeconomic factors, the Commercial & Retail
Banking Group (C&RBG) closed 2009 with the key performance indicators being positive.
The absolute domestic deposits base increased by 22% with emphasis on growth in low
cost deposits. As a major initiative in this direction the bank launched CASA Deposit
Mobilization Scheme in late 2009 aimed at mobilizing Current / Saving Accounts through
incentivizing employees. With the increase in NPLs, the focus on recoveries has been
heightened, along with prudent growth in advances.

SME financing is an area of good future potential. Due to negative impact of high inflation
& interest rates, power shortages, fluctuation in commodity prices and reduction in export
orders, this sector suffered considerable pressure that reduced the repayment capacity of
the borrowers for existing loans and also their willingness to go for fresh financing. Due to
these factors SME loans registered decline.

Commodity support prices were raised by the Government to provide much needed
support and encouragement to the growers and as a result the loans under commodity
operations witnessed robust growth during 2009 and increased by 110%. These loans are
fully backed by GOP guarantee.

objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the
effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes.

In order to restructure the Audit & inspection Group in line with international best practices
a detailed strategic plan has been evolved wherein time-bound action plan was chalked
out to implement four pronged strategy to bring about a quality change in the functioning of
audit and to change its approach from traditional procedure-based audit to a more
sophisticated Risk Based & Value Added Audit & Management Consultancy. To achieve
these goals we are hiring qualified staff, arranging appropriate training programs,
encouraging audit functionaries to acquire professional qualifications, re-engineering
systems, policies and structure of internal audit in line with our objective of undertaking
risk-based and value-added activities.

management policies and procedures are subject to high degree of supervision and
guidance to ensure that all risk categories are systematically identified, measured,
analyzed and proactively managed.

market risk. Operational Risk Management Unit has been established that supplements
Credit and Market risk units for comprehensive risk management. Our risk management in
terms of adoption of Basel II guidelines is advancing smoothly where consultants have
been appointed to assist the bank in developing a robust framework for managing risk.

We have our internal filtration systems and approval hierarchy to ensure that proper
authority and responsibility is established whilst reducing the lead processing time of the
credit application. The bank has proper monitoring system with Credit Administration
Department (CAD) to further improve risk management function.

Compliance is an independent function that identifies, assesses, advises, monitors and
reports on the Bank‟s compliance risk, i.e. the risk of legal or regulatory sanctions,
financial loss or loss to the reputation which the bank may suffer as a result of its failure to
comply with applicable laws, regulations, and codes of conduct and standards of best
practices. The bank has accelerated its efforts proactively to strengthen compliance
culture in the bank. During 2009 we have revised Compliance Review Program (CRP) to
incorporate relevant changes in rules, regulations and changing dynamics to help senior
management in identifying and assessing risk. In view of development of Compliance
Review Program, Exception Reporting Mechanism has improved and now senior
management receives report of violations promptly. Immediate corrective measures are
initiated to secure the bank‟s interest.

capture the market. There two products Advance Salary and Gold loan are their own
products. National bank of Pakistan is penetrate, because NBP is the first bank in
Pakistan which offering these services in both rural and urban areas.

Rivalry among competitive firms

The NBP offering very low charges on demand draft and give other additional services
to the customers.

Potential entry of new competitors:

there are banks with quality services and low charges. So there is no threat to NBP from
potential entry and NBP is also a public sector bank because of that no other new bank
not takes over it.

Potential Development of substitute products:

ATM which substitute presenting cheques at counter and encash it. The NBP is lacking
in this field. It must improve in this field to compete the competitors.

Bargaining Power of Suppliers:

The suppliers are customers they supply the money to banks. Now they must offer good
services, quality, and safety. Low charges etc to customers.

In this field NBP is very good. B/C at offers good quality services to customers. They
charge low charges on remittances. So that‟s it is competitions other banks.

                                                                                 Page 41
