  • Non-Traditional Bank Services• Logistics definition has its origin in the Greek word ‘ logistiki’ which means financial organization, but in France it has the meaning of channel to transport goods from one location to other.• the logistics definition is the combination of packing, material handling, inventory, warehousing, transportation, security and information.• It controls the sequence of supply which is important for the utilization of location and time.• It determines the path of transporting goods and many important information between the consumer point and the production or source point.• It has the special term production logistics which gives the assurance of the supply of the high quality product in time, with security. 5
  • ..NON- TRADITIONAL BANK SERVICES• Financial leasing..• If you do not wish to purchase an asset by means of installments credit. you may decide to lease the asset only by paying a rental charges over an agreed period of time ,Then you will have the exclusive use of this asset but the asset itself is still belonging under the ownership of the bank.There is NO option to purchase this asset under a financial lease arrangement.At the end of the initial leasing period you may have the option to renew the agreement at a much reduced rate .The bank is responsible for maintenance of the asset, but the customer must insure this asset against fire, theft, and any other normal business risk.What the customer does not have to bear is the problem of the asset becoming obsolete. 6
  • ..NON- TRADITIONAL BANK SERVICES• Hire Purchase..• Hire purchase is an agreement to hire an item for a given period plus an option to purchase after the last installment has been paid.• Until the balance is paid, the bank owns the title of this asset. 7
  • .Principles of Lending• Before you have had the opportunity to develop judgment and experience, there are some basic considerations which can help you to reach your decision.• One easy way to help you to remember is by using a credit technique assessment like C.A.M.P.A.R.I.• Which stand for : Character, Ability, Margin, Purpose, Amount, Repayment, and Insurance. 8
  • .Principles of Lending• CHARACTER..• Age / health. the sole source of repayment for lending to personal customers is often earnings, which normally rely on the continued good health and employment of the customer.2) Personal stability. evidence of the customer ‘s residential status whether the customer is an owner, tenant, or perhaps living with parents, and how long the customer has lived at that address these information may provide some indication of personal stability. likewise, marital status and whether there are any or many dependants, are also indicator, likewise, the type of occupation could be important to your decision, and how long has the customer been in that employment and what position do they hold, how secure is the job. 9
  • .Principles of Lending• CHARACTER..• 3) integrity and honesty, whether we feel that we can trust the customer depends upon our own subjective view also any previous dealings with our bank or other banks can help to identify how honest and trustworthy of the customer has been in the past.4) Personal resources, reasonable indicators can be found by a visit to the customer’s home or place of business and also during conversation. 10
  • .Principles of Lending• CHARACTER..• 5) outgoings, what type of life-style does a customer enjoy and how much does it cost in regular expenditure.6) connections, to check whether it might be a strong family connections or not , we must only bear in mind these connections in mind and never lend if repayment is doubtful. 11
  • .Principles of Lending• ABILILTY..• Providing that the individual has the legal capacity to borrow funds, that they are over 18, then we need to check that they have the ability to manage their financial affairs effectively and will succeed in their aims or not. 12
  • .Principles of Lending• Margin ..• You must decide what return you can expect for the type of borrowing requested.• The greater the risk, the higher the interest rate to be charged.• Commission and fees.• Cross- selling.• Business development opportunity. 13
  • .Principles of Lending• PURPOSE..• We need first of all to ensure that the purpose for which the money will be used is legal not immoral and that there are NO government restrictions on lending.• It may be bank ‘ s policy from time to time to reduce the availability of funds for certain types of lending ex., weapons trading.• Therefore, at this stage we must think carefully about the following questions,• Why is loan needed?• Does it in the customer’s best interest ?• Does it against bank’s policy or any government regulations? 14
  • .Principles of Lending• AMOUNT..• With regard to personal loans for customer durables, ex., carpets, furniture, videos, TVs, weddings, holidays, guidelines are laid down to help you determine minimum and maximum amounts for certain types of lending.• Therefore, you will need to establish whether the amount required is correct, reasonable, enough, suitable. 15
  • .Principles of Lending• REPAYMENT..• Technically, most bank lending on overdraft and loan is repayable on demand.• However, it would be unrealistic to expect such immediate response from a customer and usually agreement is reached on the timescale for repayment.• Ex. Customer needs one million USD, repayment after five years, purpose to spend one month holiday in Australia - - the expected answer that you will never see this customer again.• Therefore we must think carefully about the source of repayment ex., sale of assets, cash generation, profits, other customer’s income, can repayments be met without strain.• Finally we must check whether the repayment amount ( principle amount + interest + fees + charges ) Vs. period of timescale are both within guidelines. 16
  • ..Principle of Lending• INSURANCE..• If the proposition does not seem appropriate without taking security, which should have to be realized on the failure of the debtor, then you should not lend in the first place.• Security should be considered only as a safety net, not as a prime point of consideration in whether to lend.• Security is merely an insurance against unforeseen events that adversely affect what would otherwise have been a good proposition , for ex., civil war, strikes, or any similar kind of FORCE MAJUIRE.• In addition you might need to consider whether life insurance or similar insurance against unemployment or sickness might be helpful for both the customer’s as well as the bank ‘s benefits.• Any security taken should be :-• Easy to take realize.• Easy to value.• Easy to charge ( for the bank to obtain a good title). 17
