Introduction to the department
ABL corporate branch Multan
Branch code (393)
Address: Abdali road Multan
I did my internship of eight weeks in Allied bank, corporate branch Multan from 5th June 2017 to 31st July 2017 in the field of corporate banking.
Corporate banking is custom-tailored financing and banking services for corporations. Corporate banking is typically offered by commercial banks, and entails all the services that can be extended on a financial level to corporate entities to ease day-to-day operations. The products they offer include treasury services, loans and credit, trade finance (such as letters of credit), and employer services (such as payroll).I selected this branch because I was of the view that I can find more learning opportunities in main branch as compared to other branches.
In the same branch different departments of ABL are working. So I got the opportunity to know briefly about three departments.
The banking operations department manages financial and administrative duties.It also oversees and supervises all services and operations of the bank. Moreover, it is responsible for the safekeeping of money and facilitation of the bank’s activities, by ensuring that all functions proceed smoothly.
An operations department is responsible for running business successfully.
The operation banking department perform the functions of account opening, deposits of check, demand draft(DD), pay order(P/O), clearing, telegraphic transfer, collection of bills etc.
The main function of the credit department is to lend money. In the lending process, selection of borrower is the most crucial and vital job for a banker. Before a customer enjoys credit facilities it is important that the applicant should qualify for five Cs.
The five Cs are:
• Character – Intention to pay back the loan
• Capacity – Borrower’s competence in terms of utilizing the fund profitably and generate income
• Capital – Financial strength to cover the risk
• Conditions – General business condition between two parties
• Collateral – Implies additional securities
In addition, objectives of the credit department are managing credit exposure of the bank, maintaining credit risk, compliance of Central Bank Ltd, recovering or collecting dues of retail loans or advances.
Types of loan
In the corporate branch of ABL the different types of loans are given to the customers.
Money market loan(MML)
Finance on import merchandise(FIM)
Payment against documents(PAD)
Short term loan
There are two types of loan in it
Short term loan is for one or less than 1 year. In running and cash financing the customer can take the loan on daily basis and can be adjust when the payment is made by the customer. The markup is charged until the loan is paid.
The difference between running ad cash financing is that security is pledged against cash financing and hypothecation of documents against running finance
Hypothecation: in the case of hypothecation the bank takes the documents of the goods or securities. Both the ownership and physical possession remain with the borrower.
Pledge: In this matter the borrower surrenders the physical possession of the goods, under effective control of the bank. The ownership of the goods however, remains with the borrower.
Medium term loan
This type of loan is for three to five years
Long term loan
This type of loan is for five to ten years
Security is mortgage against the medium and long term loan.
Money market loan
Money market loan is also the short term loan like running and cash financing but the difference is that there is no daily basis transactions are involved.im MML the customer can take the loan one time and disburse it when the time comes. The period is from one week to three months. Basically it gives benefit to both the customer and bank. Its markup is less as compared to other type of loans and the benefit to the bank is that the bank knows that how much markup will earn.
Finance on import merchandise
This is a short term loan extended to an importer for the retirement of the LC at Sight against pledge of imported merchandise. The validity of this finance is capped maximum up to 180 days and the customer is at a liberty, either to adjust it in lump sum or in tranches, within the validity of the finance period. The PAD is got adjusted through FIM and imported merchandise is stored in a warehouse under the custodianship of bank’s appointed guards. The customer deposits the required or desired amount at the bank’s counter and obtains delivery order of pledged goods there-against.
For example: suppose the customer is not able to pay for his order so the bank will pay through FIM. When the goods arrive at the port, the possession will be of the bank. Firstly the customer will pay back the loan and then the goods will come in the possession of customer.
Payment against document(PAD)
An arrangement under which an exporter instructs the presenting bank to hand over shipping and title documents to the importer only if the importer fully pays the accompanying bill of exchange or draft. Also called cash against documents.
When the letter of credit is issued the documents against the loan is kept as a security by the bank. When the stock comes at the port the customer take the documents back and put the stock as the security for the loan.so the PAD convert into the FIM.
The trade department protects consumers from unsafe and poor quality products and creates favorable conditions for exchange of goods.
Allied bank, with its variety of export products and expertise, can help customers mitigate risks involved in export transactions, which in turn, will help their export business flourish. We offer a wide range of import products delivered by our expert trade team who ensures quick and efficient processing of transactions.
Allied Bank provides highly efficient trade finance services for import/export businesses through a large number of authorized branches where trained and motivated staff is available to handle the business on the customer’s behalf
These are short term credit facilities (maturity of up to one year) lent to customers to meet their day-to-day business/working capital requirements and finance their inventories, receivables, etc.
Generally, in addition to collateral security, these facilities also entail security in the form of hypothecation of stocks and receivable/pledge of stocks.
Foreign bill purchase
This loan/facility is provided to exporters against their export bills under LC and a contract to facilitate their cash flow, while they are waiting receipt of their payments.
On behalf of the customers, the Bank issues a guarantee in favor of the beneficiary, against the performance of a particular job/contract, within a particular time.
Application of Classroom Concepts
During my internship period, I got the chance to see the application of many concepts which I have studied during my academic period. I am glad that I have seen the practical use of multiple financial instruments which were previously only studied theoretically.
These are the some procedures and instruments which were used in ABL to manage the financial and accounting Data.
Letter of credit
Check clearing is the process of moving funds from one account to another. … It simply means that the checks, once deposited into the bank, need to be transferred to the clearing system, which then communicates with the other banks that the checks are from.
