ICICI Bank has grown from development bank to a financial conglomerate and has become one of the largest public financial institution in India.ICICI Bank has financed all major sectors of economy.
  14. 14. Kochhar’s strategy to keep ICICI on growth trends • Things have changed quit dramatically for ICICI Bank which today has a asset size of Rs.5.36 lakh crore up from Rs3.79 lakh crore in 2008- 09, when Kochhar took charge. The proportion of low-cost current – account-saving account (CASA) deposits has grown substantially from 28.7 per cent of total asset in 2008-09 to 43.3 per cent in 2012-13. • The focus on better management of risk has led to a dramatic improvement in credit quality and credit cost or the cost of provisions the bank makes against bad loans – declined from 2.2 per cent of total asset to just 0.8 per cent in financial year 2012-13. • A mixed strategy is followed, on one hand cost were being cut and high- cost deposits were being shed. On the other , the branch network was being expanded. Internally ,from a product centric model where segmentation was done on the basis of deposits, home loans ,car loans and the like, the bank moved to customer segmentation.
  15. 15. • For now, as the economy slow down, Kochhar hopes the bank with its distribution network, funding profile, knowledge and skill base, will continue growing at 2-3 per cent higher then the industry average. “The bank’s substantial branch expansion in the past 24 months is expected to result in a more favourable deposit mix going forward. It expects the growth in advance for FY 2014 to be 2-3 per cent above industry growth which at times looks achievable. • Recently, in a seminar on ‘Financial Services –a key driver for economic growth’, she expresses the need to bring “growth and vibrancy” in the economy to make India a financial hub. She insisted that growth and vibrancy in the domestic economy includes stable levels of fiscal deficit and current account deficit and bringing inflation under control. “The next set of initiative would be regarding regulation , legal environment and taxation. It is not only the existence of such regulatory and legal environment that is important but the consistency in policy and taxation law is important ,she said.
  16. 16. Hinting at the need of swift government, Kochhar said, “getting small things like Visa or driving license should be made easier as we in financial sector are dealing with financial regulation and tax constraints

  24. 24. Emolument Chanda kochhar is an incredible overachiever. At a very young age, she was appointed the M.D. of ICICI Bank, a gigantic power house with a market cap of 142,230 crore. Since the day, she took charge (01/05/2009), ICICI has gone places , giving its shareholders a return of 158%. While the growth was tempered in the early years to curb MPAs, it has been on a growth trajectory in the recent past. Now, with a salary of Rs5.12 crore , Chanda kochhar has achieved the distinction of being the highest paid banker in the country. The other top-notch bankers were not on chanda kochhar’s heels. Aditya Puri, the star M.D. of HDFC Bank came within touching distance with an annual salary of Rs 5 crore.
  25. 25. Shikha sharma, CEO Axis Bank took home Rs. 3.45 crore while wiz- kid uday kotak, M.D. kotak Mahindra Bank, had to remain content with a salary of Rs. 2.19 crore In terms of shareholders return, Chanda Kochhar’s ICICI Bank came second with a 51% YOY return while Shikha Sharma’s AXIS Bank came third with a 47% YOY return. For the fourth place, Aditya Puri’s HDFC Bank was tied with a 42% YOY return.
  26. 26. Conclusion Chanda Kochhar’s ability to manage such a huge organization and being it the best profits ever keeping the employees highly contented is the most admiring quality about her. We have heard that a leader is tested during critical times. It shows her decision making power. In year 1991, when country was dwindling under financial pressure from all corner, it was then the concept of privatisation of bank was done. Her abilities in the financial sector were highly appreciated in the company which got her a post of general manager in 1994. It makes this person admired all around the nation. The HR communication qualities of a leader can be seen in the manner she convinced the customers to use the services of privatised bank in the era. .
  27. 27. Looking at the designation changes in Kochhar’s career , it become clear that she had to manage different team at different times and also in quick succession. Being manager of so many companies alone, and patting all of them at the apex in their respective fields also shows her ability to manage parallel work functions. Finally one can admire Chanda Kochhar for the fact that she has not inherited success. She has gone through all the phases of struggle before even leading a single team. For her, many a times excelling at work meant giving up on her personal priorities. “There were so many occasions when I wasn't around for my kids or my husband. But we learnt to work around it.” said kochhar. In many ways her children have motivated too.
