Banking Industry Update Dec ‘10
Taking a breather, negatives surround…
Banking stocks corrected across the board on the PSU banks ‘bribery for loans’ scam, 2G and MFI loans, liquidity concerns and rising G-Sec yields. However, one has to take a call on whether the sector will keep correcting further. We believe the sector will continue to remain under pressure in the near term where stocks may not give a sharp bounce-back but shall remain around these levels until we are able to see a sharp uptick in credit and deposits growth alongside pressure on yields easing off.

The recent bribery for loans scam concern, mounting pension liabilities remain an overhang on the sector. We expect a reduction in valuation multiples of PSU banks, particularly midcap PSU banks. Their range of 1.5x-2x may shift to 1.4-1.8x. We recommend investors buy large cap stocks like HDFC Bank (higher CASA and corrected), Bank of Baroda (strong asset book) and among other midcaps Oriental Bank of Commerce (cheap valuation) and Development Credit Bank (sharp correction and turning profitable) in current market conditions.

In this we have tried to study the different aspects of the banks. Here in we have considered 4 banks, namely SBI, ICICI, HSBC, Yes Bank. Research Methodology: The research methodology that we adopted was a dual one:- Primary Research Under Primary research we visited the banks, collected data directly from the respected persons and analysed it. Secondary Research Under Secondary Research we took information from the Internet, Books. INTRODUCTION Banking in India originated in the last decades of the 18th century. The first banks were The General Bank of India, which started in 1786, and Bank of Hindustan, which started in 1790; both are now defunct. The oldest bank in existence in India is the State Bank of India, which originated in the Bank of Calcutta in June 1806, which almost immediately became the Bank of Bengal. This was one of the three presidency banks, the other two being the Bank of ombay and the Bank of Madras, all three of which were established under charters from the British East ndia Company. For many years the Presidency banks acted as quasi-central banks, as did their successors. The three banks merged in 1921 to form the Imperial Bank of India, which, upon India's independence, became the State Bank of India. Indian merchants in Calcutta established the Union Bank in 1839, but it failed in 1848 as...

Inclusive Growth in Indian Banking Sector

...Introduction Indian banking system has emerged as a vibrant sector in the Indian economy. Strong regulatory mechanism, inherent strength in the economy, and progressive policy framework which supports, nurtures, and helps in growing the financial institutions. Indian financial services industry is dominated by the banking sector that contributes significantly to the level of economic activity. The banking structure in India is broadly classified into public sector banks, private sector banks and foreign banks. The public sector banks continue to dominate the banking industry, in terms of lending and borrowing, and it has widely spread out branches which help greatly in pooling up of resources as well as in revenue generation for credit creation. The role of banks in accelerating economic development of the country has been increasingly recognized since the nationalization This facilitated the rapid expansion of banking in terms of its geographical reach covering rural India, in turn leading to significant growth in deposits and advances. Eventually, however, the government used banking sector to finance its own deficit by frequently increasing cash reserve ratios (CRR) and statutory liquidity ratio (SLR). Deregulation of the Indian financial system in 1991 followed by various financial sector reforms during the period 1990 through 1998 led to a major restructuring of the Indian banking industry. India has entered high growth trajectory with the initiation of economic......

Mergers & Acquisitions in Banking Sector

...ABSTRACT Recent reports on banking sector often indicate that India is slowly but surely moving from a regime of `large number of small banks' to `small number of large banks'. The aim of this paper is to probe into the various motivations for mergers and acquisitions in the Indian Banking sector. Thus, literature is reviewed to look into the various motivations behind a banks’ merger/ acquisition event. The paper also takes us through the international mergers & acquisitions scenario comparing it with the Indian scene. Given the increasing role of the economic power in the turf war of nations, the paper looks at the significant role of the state and the central bank in protecting customer’s interests vis-à-vis creating players of international size. While, gazing at the mergers & acquisitions in the Indian Banking Sector both from an opportunity and as imperative perspectives, the paper also glances at the large implications for the nation. INTRODUCTION Generally speaking a bank is an institution dealing in money. The origin of the word bank is traced to the Italian ‘banca’, ‘banc’ or ‘banque’, which means a bench. It is stated that in Middle Ages the European money changers and moneylenders displayed their coins on their benches and conducted their business. Hence the term bank refers to the bench on which the business of money changing and money lending was conducted. Hence, the term banking is defined as accepting for the purpose of lending or investment,......

A Stochastic Approach to Indian Banking Sector : Technical Analysis of Private Sector Banks

...A Stochastic Approach to Indian Banking Sector : Technical Analysis of Private Sector Banks Dr. Rahul Rajan Abhilasha Srivastava Abstract The objective of this paper is to present a method for estimating the cost efficiency of Indian banks in order to study the degree of technical and cost performance of the Indian banking sector and to analyze how the banking sector has been affected by technical efficiency and cost efficiency. Initially, the evolution in the technical front in the banks between 2005 to 2012 is measured. For this analysis purpose a sample of 101 Indian banks including 28 public ,29 private and 44 foreign banks operating in India is taken for the period 2005-2012. For analysis purpose both the parametric method of productive efficiency frontier (Stochastic Frontier Analysis ) and nonparametric method (Data Envelopment Analysis) are taken. Introduction The financial system is the lifeline of the economy. The changes in the economy get mirrored in the performance of the financial system, more so of the banking industry. The banking system in India is significantly different from that of other Asian nations because of the country’s unique geographic, social, and economic characteristics. India has a large population and land size, a diverse culture, and extreme disparities in income, which are marked among its regions. There are high levels of illiteracy among a large percentage of its population but, at the same time, the country has a large......

The Indian Banking Industry

...The Indian Banking industry, which is governed by the Banking Regulation Act of India, 1949 can be broadly classified into two major categories, non-scheduled banks and scheduled banks. Scheduled banks comprise commercial banks and the co-operative banks. In terms of ownership, commercial banks can be further grouped into nationalized banks, the State Bank of India and its group banks, regional rural banks and private sector banks (the old/ new domestic and foreign). These banks have over 67,000 branches spread across the country. The first phase of financial reforms resulted in the nationalization of 14 major banks in 1969 and resulted in a shift from Class banking to Mass banking. This in turn resulted in a significant growth in the geographical coverage of banks. Every bank had to earmark a minimum percentage of their loan portfolio to sectors identified as “priority sectors”. The manufacturing sector also grew during the 1970s in protected environs and the banking sector was a critical source. The next wave of reforms saw the nationalization of 6 more commercial banks in 1980. Since then the number of scheduled commercial banks increased four-fold and the number of bank branches increased eight-fold. After the second phase of financial sector reforms and liberalization of the sector in the early nineties, the Public Sector Banks (PSB) s found it extremely difficult to compete with the new private sector banks and the foreign banks. The new private sector banks first...

Evaluating the Performance of Indian Banking Sector

...Enticed by the reform of Indian banking sector in the early 1990s and further slowdown in the economy as a result of global financial crisis in late 2000s, the current study analyzes the performance of Indian banks using data envelopment analysis. The performance is measured in terms of technical efficiency, returns-to-scale, and Malmquist productivity index for a sample of 33 banks, consisting of 19 public sector and 14 private sector banks during the period spanning 1995-96 to 2009-10. The jackknifing analysis, followed by the dummy variable regression model is used to identify the outlier and its possible impact on overall efficiency trends. Findings reveal that efficiency scores are robust in the sense that the inclusion of outlier does not affect the overall efficiency trends. The public sector bank is faintly doing better than the private sector banks in terms of (i) technical efficiency since 2003-04 and (ii) scale efficiency from 2000-01 onwards. There is growing tendency of public banks operating under increasing returns to scale, implying that substantial gains could be obtained from altering scale via either internal growth or consolidation in the sector. The difference in the Total Factor Productivity (TFP) change between these two types of banks is found to be statistically significant in favour of public sector banks. The technological change has been the dominating source of productivity growth, whereas, the contribution of pure efficiency change and scale......

...The Indian Banking Sector On the Road to Progress G. H. Deolalkar G. H. Deolalkar is formerly Managing Director of State Bank of India. 60 A STUDY OF FINANCIAL MARKETS Overview of Banking and Financial Institutions The Banking Sector The banking system in India is significantly different from that of other Asian nations because of the country’s unique geographic, social, and economic characteristics. India has a large population and land size, a diverse culture, and extreme disparities in income, which are marked among its regions. There are high levels of illiteracy among a large percentage of its population but, at the same time, the country has a large reservoir of managerial and technologically advanced talents. Between about 30 and 35 percent of the population resides in metro and urban cities and the rest is spread in several semi-urban and rural centers. The country’s economic policy framework combines socialistic and capitalistic features with a heavy bias towards public sector investment. India has followed the path of growth-led exports rather than the “exportled growth” of other Asian economies, with emphasis on self-reliance through import substitution. These features are reflected in the structure, size, and diversity of the country’s banking and financial sector. The banking system has had to serve the goals of economic policies enunciated in successive fiveyear development plans, particularly concerning equitable income distribution, balanced...

...Indian Banking – The engine for sustaining India’s growth agenda 5th ICC Banking Summit Kolkata 18 May 2013 Foreword Over the past couple of years, the Indian banking sector has displayed a high level of resilience in the face of high domestic inflation, rupee depreciation and fiscal uncertainty in the US and Europe. In order to stimulate the economy and support growth of the banking sector, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) adopted several policy measures. © 2013 KPMG, an Indian Registered Partnership and a member firm of the KPMG network of independent member firms affiliated with KPMG International Cooperative (“KPMG International”), a Swiss entity. All rights reserved. Asset quality, capital adequacy, financial inclusion and talent management are some of the key issues facing the Indian banking industry, which despite serving the second largest populated country in the world with a total of 87 banks (including 26 public sector banks, 20 private banks and 41 foreign banks), as per the RBI, reaches out to only about half of the country’s households, scripting a nominal global footprint. The rising consumerism from the emerging ‘middle’ India and the higher purchasing power in rural India on account of rising employment provides opportunities for banks to look beyond the traditional customer segments. However, these segments would require flexible operating models which would ensure responsiveness at the last mile and at the same time be viable for the banks.......

Banking Sector Reforms in India

...BANKING SECTOR REFORMS IN INDIA . Introduction: Financial sector reforms introduced in the early 1990s as a part of the structural reforms have touched upon almost all aspects of banking operation. For a few decades preceding the onset of banking and financial sector reforms in India, banks operated in an environment that was heavily regulated and characterized by sufficient barriers to entry which protected them against too much competition. The banking reform package was based on the recommendation proposed by Narsimhan Committee report (1992) that advocated a move to a more market oriented banking system, which could operate in an environment of prudential regulation and transparent accounting. One of the primary motives behind this drive was to introduce an element of market discipline into the regulatory process that would reinforce the supervisory effort of the reserve bank of India(RBI). Market discipline, especially in the financial liberalization phase, reinforces regulatory and supervisory efforts and provides a strong incentive to banks to conduct their business in a prudent and efficient manner and to maintain adequate capital as a cushion against risk exposures. The administered interest rate structure, both on the liability and the assets side, allowed banks to earn reasonable spread without much efforts. Although banks operated under regulatory constraints in the form of statutory holding of government securities and the cash reserve ratio (CRR)......

... Splitting a fund into some mix of shares relating to debt, dividend and capital directly adds value to the company (Gemmille, 2001).Firms has increased their level of debt relative to their profit. As a result, firm debt in general has risen substantially. They found that those firms having lower debt have higher value than the firm, which has high debt. Thus, firm can maximize its value by choosing low debt or zero debt (Kinsman and Newman, 1998). The overall finding is that the relationship between a firm’s debt level and that of its industry does not appear to be of concern to the market (Hatfield et al., 1994). Debt ratios are found to be decreasing in cash flow or profitability and increasing in the investment of the firm in both sectors of countries. underinvestment problem. Stulz (1990) assumes that managers have no equity ownership in the firm and receive utility by managing a larger firm. The “power of manger” may motivate the self-interested managers to undertake negative present value project. To solve this problem, shareholders force firms to issue debt. But if firms are forced to pay out funds, they may have to forgo positive present value projects. Therefore, the optimal debt structure is determined by balancing the optimal agency cost of debt and the agency cost of managerial discretion. Methodological framework This study aimed to provide a status on the extent to which a firm’s capital structure may differ and how value of firm change and it includes......

Sustainable Banking -an Indian Perspective

...SUSTAINABLE BANKING -AN INDIAN PERSPECTIVE Abstract ------------------------------------------------- The contribution of financial institutions including banks to sustainable development is dominant, considering the crucial role they play in financing the economic and developmental activities of the world. In this context, the urgency for banks to act as responsible corporate citizens in the society, especially in a developing country like ours, need be hardly overemphasized. Their activities should reflect their concern for human rights and environment. Since banking sector is one of the major stake holders in the Industrial sector, it can find itself faced with credit risk and liability risks. Further, environmental impact might affect the quality of assets and also rate of return of banks in the long-run. Thus the banks should go green and play an upbeat role to take environmental and ecological aspects as part of their lending principle, which would force industries to go for mandated investment for environmental management, use of appropriate technologies and management systems. This paper explores the developments of environmental concern in Indian banks, their environmental impact, and their role in the economy as a driving force for more proactive policies toward sustainable development. 1Introduction Banks and financial intuitions have played major role in the economic development of the country and most of the credit- related schemes of the......

...BANKING CHALLENGES IN THE 21ST CENTURY Dr. Muhammad Anwar Hassan, Vice Chancellor, Preston University, Mr. Muhammad Humayun Khan, Chief Manager, State Bank of Pakistan, SBP BSC (Bank) Peshawar, Mr. Rashid Qazi, Vice President, PICIC Commercial Bank Ltd. Peshawar, Mr. Badar Hussain, Area Head North, MCB Peshawar, Mr. Tabraiz Hassan Butt, Regional Business/Operational Chief Peshawar, Fellow Bankers, Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen! First of all I would like to congratulate the administration of Preston University Peshawar for organizing this Seminar. It was the earlier part of the 1990s when the inherent weaknesses of the banking structure were recognized and a comprehensive reform process in the banking industry was initiated. The underlying objectives of the initiatives were to ensure and create a level-playing-field environment of competition in the market and to strengthen the governance and supervision of the financial institutions. In fact, the reforms were targeted to adopt a market-based indirect system of monetary, exchange and credit management to ensure the efficient allocation of financial resources. Today, 15 years later, it would no longer be an exaggeration but a fair statement that the landscape of the banking system in Pakistan has changed. The country has made a significant progress in implementing financial sector reforms and has achieved a more competitive market structure with expanding market share of private sector banks. Moreover, significant gains......

...Pakistan’s Banking Sector Current Situation and Critical Issues ISHRAT HUSAIN Pakistan’s banking sector reforms which were initiated in the early 1990s have transformed the sector into an efficient, sound and strong banking system. The most recent comprehensive assessment carried out jointly by the World Bank and the IMF in 2004 came to the following conclusion: “ for reaching reforms have resulted in a more efficient and competitive financial system In particular, the predominantly state-owned banking system has been transformed into one that is predominantly under the control of the private sector. The legislative framework and the State Bank of Pakistan’s supervisory capacity have been improved substantially. As a result, the financial sector is sounder and exhibits an increased resilience to shocks.” The major changes that have occurred in the banking sector during the last decade or so can be summarized as follows: a) 80 percent of the banking assets are held by the private sector banks and the privatization of nationalized commercial banks has brought about a culture of professionalism and service orientation in place of bureaucracy and apathy. b) The banks that were losing money due to inefficiencies, waste and limited product range have become highly profitable business. These profits are, however, being used to strengthen the capital base of the banks rather than paying out to the shareholders. The minimum capital......
