  7. 7. v Executive Summary Banking industry is one of the most promising industries in our country. Since 1972 the banking sector has been playing an important role in achieving economic growth of Bangladesh. In this age of modern civilization commercial bank is emerging as a driving factor for the economic development of a country. Banks do not make intermediation only to individuals; they also intermediate to the firms in other sectors. So the performance and soundness of the banking sector are very important for almost all sectors, consequently for our economy. To keep the performance of the banking sector high, knowing dynamics of it is very important. This paper aims to analyze the “Measuring Financial Performance Based on Camels Rating on Five Selected Commercial Banks in Bangladesh”. CAMELS rating system is an international bank-rating system where bank supervisory authorities rate institutions according to six factors. It is encountered by six components named capital adequacy, asset quality, management quality, earnings, liquidity and sensitivity to market risk. It is used for banking companies to know about their financial condition, overall soundness of the banks, and predict different risk factors that may contribute to turn the bank into a problem. In Bangladesh, since the early nineties, CAMELS rating have been used for evaluating institution’s financial condition, compliance with banking regulations and statutes and overall operating soundness. The key purpose of the study is to find out overall soundness of the banks and predict different risk factors that may contribute to turn the bank into a problem. This study is based on secondary data. This paper examines the comparative performance of five leading commercial banks, namely, Premier bank, Bank Asia, Dhaka bank, Mercantile bank and Prime bank through CAMELS rating, to understand the camels models and practices and their impact on the banking sector of Bangladesh. The information’s of the research have gathered by the internet from the different related official websites and various thesis paper. I have collected data from different links and then analyzed it. After analysis, I got significant results from this study. From this, now we can get a clear idea that how Banks calculated Camels rating to know about the financial soundness of the banks.

  11. 11. 1 1.1.0 Background of the study The performance of an economy is very much associated with the performance of the financial sector of that economy. The financial sector of our country is gaining strength over the years and its contribution to growth is overwhelming. Banks are considered the main component of our Financial Sector. A good performance of banking sector itself indicates the overall good performance of the sector, which ultimately leads to improved performance of economy. The functions of present day commercial banks have diversified manifold. The banking sectors are treated as the back-bone of an economy. There are several types of banks in Bangladesh. In today’s scenario, the banking sector is one of the fastest growing sector and a lot of funds are invested in Banks. Also today’s banking system is becoming more complex. So, we thought of evaluating the performance of the banks. There are so many models of evaluating the performance of the banks, but we have chosen the CAMELS Model to evaluate the performance of the banks. CAMELS is an acronym for six components of bank safety and soundness And those include – C - Capital adequacy A - Asset quality M - Management quality E - Earnings L - Liquidity S - Sensitivity to Market Risk This paper examines the comparative performance of the commercial banks of Bangladesh namely Prime Bank, Dhaka Bank, Mercantile Bank, Premier Bank and Bank Asia through CAMELS Rating. Performance of the banking sector under CAMELS involves analysis and evaluation of these six crucial dimensions of banking operations. The CAMELS methodology was originally adopted by North American bank regulators to evaluate the financial and managerial soundness of U.S. commercial lending institutions.
  12. 12. 2 1.1.1 Research background and motivations A number of studies have been done relating to Camels rating and exploited on the implication of such measures of banking institutions. Therefore, this study has aimed at filling the gap on Camels rating of private commercial banking institution. 1.1.2 Statement of the Problem This report has been titled as “Measuring Financial Performance Based on Camels Rating on Five Selected Commercial Banks in Bangladesh”. This rating system is designed to take into account and reflect all significant financial and operational factors examiners assess in their evaluation of a camels rating performance. 1.2.0 Objectives of the report This assignment examines the Camels rating in the area of banking sector. The main objective of the study is to measure financial performance based on Camels rating of commercial banks in Bangladesh. a) To explore about CAMELS rating frame work. b) To understand the financial performance of the banks. c) To describe the CAMELS model of ranking, banking institutions, so as to analyze the comparative of various banks. d) To analyze 5 banks to get the desired results by using CAMELS as a tool of measuring performance. 1.3.0 Methodology Research Design: Descriptive research will be followed to cover the topic at hand. According to the instruction of my supervisor, I would like to prepare information about the assignment. So the assignment is descriptive in nature. Population Size: The population for this study is the all commercial banks that operate inside Bangladesh. Here 56 commercial banks in Bangladesh are considered as population. Sample Design: The sample design comprises 5 commercial banks. These 5 Commercial banks are selected randomly from 56 commercial banks in Bangladesh
  13. 13. 3 Sources of Data: This study is purely based on secondary data. This paper examines the comparative performance of five leading private sector commercial banks, namely, Premier bank, Bank Asia, Dhaka bank, Mercantile bank and Prime bank through CAMELS Rating, to understand the camels models and practices and their impact on the banking sector of Bangladesh. The financial data of selected banks have been collected from the financial statements of the respected banks. The financial statements have been collected from the Official Websites of selected banks. To determine this, financial statements for the fiscal period 2013 to 2015 are evaluated. Data Analysis: The collected data for analyzing financial performance based on Camels rating on five selected commercial banks in Bangladesh. Data is presented using tables and graphs among other data presentation tools. Collected information has then processed & compiled with the aid of MS Word 2016. Various graphs and tables will be used through Microsoft Excel 2016 for calculation and putting up in the report. 1.4.0 Limitation of the study Every study has its distinct limitations. Preparing this report, I have faced some certain limitations to collect the information which are as follows:  Limited sources of data, only the website. Insufficient supply of relevant books and journals and lack of structured information.  The data used for his study is the published annual reports from time to time. Therefore, the quality of this research depends on reliability of data published in those reports.  Time constraint for preparing the report in appropriate manner.  Lack of proper experience in the explored area while preparing the standard report.  Time and resource constrains.  The study was completely done on the basis of ratios calculated from the balance sheets.  It was not possible to get a personal interview with the management employees of all banks under study. In spite of these limitations it can be said that such limitations are common to almost all data based study. Appropriate methodology, proper research design and appropriate statistical techniques have been used to overcome many of these limitations.
  14. 14. CHAPTER TWO Literature Review
  15. 15. 4 Banking sector has played a crucial role in the development of the economy. Various scholars have made several studies on the performance of banking sector in the using CAMELS model. The Camels rating is a supervisory rating system originally developed in the U.S. to classify a bank's overall condition. It's applied to every bank and credit union in the U.S. and is also implemented outside the U.S. by various banking supervisory regulators Some of the important studies reviewed for present paper are as under: Federal Reserve System of United States implemented The Uniform Financial Institutions Rating System (UFIRS) in 1979 in the US banking institutions. UFIRS was recommended worldwide later on. UFIRS was known internationally as CAMELS rating system globally. Dang, Uyen. 2011, The camels ratıng system ın bankıng supervısıon a case study by examining its balance sheet, as well as, profit and loss statement on the basis of each component, thus observing the institution's dynamic aspect. Doumpos & Zopounidis said that " In the new globalize financial system, as with all new financial markets and products, the banks' economic situation can rapidly change than in the past. As a result of the new situation, supervisory authorities were led towards changing their way of approach and assessment, paying more emphasis on ways to overcome and manage risks. As a result of this new situation that was created through the development of the financial system, a further area of assessment was added, that of the initial S, indicating market risk. This took place in 1995 by the US Federal Reserve (Fed) and the Comptroller of the Currency (Hafer, 2005), who replaced CAMEL with CAMELS and added a management assessment system scale from 1 (optimum) to 5 (worse) for risk management. Prasuna (2003), analyzed the performance of Indian banks by adopting the CAMEL Model. The performance of 65 banks was studied for the period 2003-04. The author concluded that the competition was tough and consumers benefited from better services quality, innovative products and better bargains. Dr. Sneha S. Shukla (2015) study the analysis financial strength of public and private sector banks: A CAMELS approach. His study was mainly based on secondary data drawn from the annual reports published by banks. His report analyzed the financial health of public and private sector banks in the CAMELS parameters. His findings of the study revealed that the financial health of public and private sector banks.
  16. 16. 5 Bangladesh Bank introduced CAMEL Rating System in 1993 as an integral part of Offsite Supervision System. Initially, report was prepared on the half-yearly basis for all banks. Subsequently in 1999, Board of Directors of BB advised to prepare the reports of State-owned Commercial Banks (SCBs) on quarterly basis. Due to the emergence of the banking sector and changes in the economic scenario, BB Management updated the previously practiced CAMEL based Supervision System to "Guidelines for Determination of CAMELS Rating for the Banking Companies" which was developed by supervision consultant Ms. F. P. Santos employed under the Central Bank Strengthening Project Cell (CBSP). The new system was approved by the Governor on 26.01.2006. The revised rating system was first exercised on June ‘06 to evaluate the performance of banks as of 30/06/2006. In the new system, Sensitivity to Market Risks has been added to the previously practiced system to observe how the banks manage the market risks such as interest rate risk, foreign exchange risk, commodity prices, equity prices etc. Mohammad Kamrul Ahsan (2016) performance Measuring financial based on CAMEL: A study on selected Islamic banks in Bangladesh. His study focuses on domestic Islamic banks measuring financial performance based on CAMEL rating model.

CHAPTER THREE Theoretical Review 3.1.0 Camels Rating 3.2.0 Composite of Camels Rating 3.3.0 Camels Numerical Rating: Rating Description 3.4.0 Capital Adequacy 3.5.0 Asset quality 3.6.0 Management quality 3.7.0 Earning Quality 3.8.0 Liquidity 3.9.0 Sensitivity to Market Risk 3.10.0 CAMELS Rating System of Bangladesh
  18. 18. 6 3.1.0 Camels Rating Camels is a rating system generally used by the government policy circle, regulating bodies regulating commercial banks, that is, central banks and non-governmental policy research centers for the purpose of assessing the soundness of a savings association or a bank. As regards to the background of introducing CAMEL, it was originally adopted by the regulators of North American Commercial banks and it covers five areas of performance, namely, Capital Adequacy, Asset quality, Management quality, Earning ability and Liquidity. In the early 1970s; federal regulators of the US developed CAMEL rating system to appraise the performance of the Commercial banks. Later in 1979, the uniform financial institution’s rating system was adopted to provide federal regulatory agencies with a framework for rating financial condition and individual banks. Since then, the application of CAMEL has spread up dramatically in respect of examining the financial strengths of one of the basic constituents of money market i.e. commercial banks. In 1995 the Federal Reserve and the OCC (Office of the Comptroller of the Currency) replaced CAMEL with CAMELS, adding the "S" which stands for Sensitivity (sensitivity to market risk, especially interest rate risk). CAMELS Rating has been considered as one of the widely used tools for judging capital adequacy, asset quality, management quality, earnings ability, liquidity and Sensitivity to market risk of the financial institutions including commercial banks by the principal regulators all around the world. In addition to this, State Banking departments as well as the Farm Administration use the CAMELS rating system to evaluate the soundness of financial institutions as follows. The abbreviations are as follows: C = Capital Adequacy A = Asset Quality M = Management Quality E = Earning L = Liquidity and S = Sensitivity to market risk. 3.2.0 Composite of Camels Rating Composite of camels ratings are based on a careful evaluation of an institution's managerial, operational, financial, and compliance performance. The six key components used to assess an
  19. 19. 7 institution's financial condition and operations are: capital adequacy, asset quality, management quality, earnings, liquidity and sensitivity to market risk. The numerical ratings assigned to the criteria are: Table:1.1 Rating Scale Rating Range Rating Analysis Rating Analysis interpretation 1 1.0-1.4 Strong Sound in every respect, no supervisory responses required 2 1.6-2.4 Satisfactory Fundamentally sound with modest correctable weakness, supervisory response limited. 3 2.6-3.4 Fair (watch category) Combination of weaknesses if not redirected will become severe. Requires more than normal supervision 4 3.6-4.4 Marginal (some risk of failure) Immoderate weakness unless properly addressed could impair future viability of the bank. Needs close supervision. 5 4.6-5.0 Unsatisfactory (high degree of failure evident) High risk of failure in the near term. Under constant supervision/cease and desist order. 3.3.0 Camels Numerical Rating: Rating Description 1. STRONG: It is the highest rating and is indicative of performance that is significantly higher than average. 2. SATISFACTORY: It reflects performance that is average or above; it includes performance that adequately provides for the safe and sound operation of the banks. 3. FAIR: Represent performance that is flawed to some degree. It is neither satisfactory nor unsatisfactory but is characterized by performance of below average quality. 4. MARGINAL: Performance is significantly at below average; if not changed, such performance might evolve into weaknesses or conditions that could threaten the viability of the bank. 5. UNSATISFACTORY: Is the lowest rating and indicative of performance that is critically deficient and in need of immediate remedial attention. Such performance by itself, or in combination with other weakness, threatens the viability of the institution.
  20. 20. 8 3.4.0 Capital Adequacy The dimension of capital adequacy is an important factor to help the bank in understanding the shock attractive capability during risk. That means, capital adequacy enables a bank to meet any financial unexpected condition due to FX risk, credit risk, market risk. Capital adequacy protects the interest of depositors of a bank. Examiners assess institutions' capital adequacy through capital trend analysis. To get a high capital adequacy rating, institutions must also comply with interest and dividend rules and practices. Other factors involved in rating and assessing an institution's capital adequacy are its growth plans, economic environment, ability to control risk, and loan and investment concentrations. The adequacy of capital is examined based upon the two most important measures such as Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) or Capital to Risk-weighted Assets ratio, and the ratio of capital to assets. 3.4.1 Capital Adequacy Ratios The capital adequacy is estimated based upon the following key financial ratios, and to be considered as good banks in world they must meet certain criteria detailed below: Table: 1.2. Capital Ratios Analysis Capital Adequacy Ratios 𝑻𝒊𝒆 𝑰 𝑪𝒂𝒑𝒊𝒕𝒂𝒍 + 𝑻𝒊𝒆𝒓𝑰𝑰 𝑪𝒂𝒑𝒊𝒕𝒂𝒍 𝑹𝒊𝒔𝒌 𝒘𝒆𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕𝒆𝒅 𝒂𝒔𝒔𝒆𝒕𝒔 Debt-Equity Ratio 𝑇𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝐿𝑖𝑎𝑏𝑖𝑙𝑖𝑡𝑖𝑒𝑠 𝑇𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝐸𝑞𝑢𝑖𝑡𝑦 Equity capital to total assets 𝑇𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝐸𝑞𝑢𝑖𝑡𝑦 𝑇𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝐴𝑠𝑠𝑒𝑡𝑠 3.5.0 Asset Quality The dimension of asset quality is an important factor to help the bank in understanding the risk on the exposure of the debtors. In this paper, this parameter is measured by the Non-performing loans to total loans ratio. This ratio assures to cover the bad and doubtful loans of the bank. This parameter will benefit the bank in understanding the amount of funds that reserved by the banks in the event of bad investments. Popular indicators include non-performing loans to total loan,
  21. 21. 9 non-performing loans to total equity, and total investments to total assets ratios. The asset quality is estimated based upon the following key financial ratios. Table:1.3. Asset Quality Ratios NPLs to total loans 𝑵𝒐𝒏 − 𝒑𝒆𝒓𝒇𝒐𝒓𝒎𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒍𝒐𝒂𝒏𝒔 𝑻𝒐𝒕𝒂𝒍 𝒍𝒐𝒂𝒏𝒔 NPLs to total equity 𝑁𝑜𝑛 − 𝑝𝑒𝑟𝑓𝑜𝑟𝑚𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑙𝑜𝑎𝑛𝑠 𝑇𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝑠ℎ𝑎𝑟𝑒ℎ𝑜𝑙𝑑𝑒𝑟 𝐸𝑞𝑢𝑖𝑡𝑦 Total Investments to Total Assets 𝑇𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝑖𝑛𝑣𝑒𝑠𝑡𝑚𝑒𝑛𝑡𝑠 𝑇𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝐴𝑠𝑠𝑒𝑡𝑠 3.6.0 Management Quality Management quality reflects the management soundness of a bank. The management acts as a safeguard to operate the bank in a smooth and decent manner and is called excellence management or skilful management, whenever it controls its cost and increases productivity, ultimately achieving higher profits. Management quality is basically the capability of the board of directors and management, to identify, measure, and control the risks of an institution ‘s activities and to ensure the safe, sound, and efficient operation in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. The management quality is estimated based upon the following key financial ratios. Table:1. 4. Management Quality Ratios Total Advance to Total Deposit Ratio 𝑻𝒐𝒕𝒂𝒍 𝒍𝒐𝒂𝒏𝒔 𝑻𝒐𝒕𝒂𝒍 𝑫𝒆𝒑𝒐𝒔𝒊𝒕 Profit per Employee 𝑃𝑟𝑜𝑓𝑖𝑡 𝑎𝑓𝑡𝑒𝑟 𝑇𝑎𝑥 𝑁𝑜. 𝑜𝑓 𝐸𝑚𝑝𝑙𝑜𝑦𝑒𝑒𝑠 3.7.0 Earning Quality The quality of earnings represents the sustainability and growth of future earnings, value of a bank’s lucrativeness and its competency to maintain quality and earn consistently. Earnings and profitability are examined as against interest rate policies and adequacy of provisioning. The earning quality is estimated based upon the following key financial ratios.
  22. 22. 10 Table :1.5.

Liquidity means the ability of the bank to fulfill its obligations, primarily of depositors. Bank can maintain adequate liquidity position either by increasing current liabilities or by converting its assets in to cash quickly. The Liquidity is estimated based upon the following key financial ratio. Table :1.6. Liquidity Ratio Liquid Assets to Total Assets 𝑳𝒊𝒒𝒖𝒊𝒅 𝑨𝒔𝒔𝒆𝒕𝒔 𝑻𝒐𝒕𝒂𝒍 𝑨𝒔𝒔𝒆𝒕𝒔 3.9.0 Sensitivity to Market Risk The sensitivity of the market risk is evaluated by banks through changes in interest rate, foreign exchange rates and equity prices. The changes in these variables influence bank's earning ability. So, sensitivity to market risk measures how adversely the bank is affected by such changes. The sensitivity to market risk is estimated based upon the following key financial ratio. Table :1.7. Sensitivity to Market Risk Ratio Price Earnings Ratio 𝑴𝒂𝒓𝒌𝒆𝒕 𝑽𝒂𝒍𝒖𝒆 𝒑𝒆𝒓 𝑺𝒉𝒂𝒓𝒆 𝑬𝒂𝒓𝒏𝒊𝒏𝒈𝒔 𝒑𝒆𝒓 𝑺𝒉𝒂𝒓𝒆
  23. 23. 11 3.10.0 CAMELS Rating System of Bangladesh In Bangladesh, since the early nineties, the same 5 components of CAMEL have been used for evaluating the five crucial dimensions of a bank’s operations that reflect in a comprehensive fashion an institution’s financial condition, compliance with banking regulations and statutes and overall operating soundness. Recently, Bangladesh Bank has upgraded the CAMEL into CAMELS effective from June, 2006. After inserting ‘S’ or ‘sensitivity to market risk’, it is presumed that this off-site supervision technique of central bank would make it a more effective tool in rating banks. The present system requires that a bank’s condition and performance be regularly appraised according to predetermined stress testing on asset and liability and foreign exchange exposures, procedures, rules and criteria and on the basis of the results obtained through risk-based audits under core risk management guidelines. A single CAMELS rating for each bank is the result of both off-site monitoring, which uses monthly financial statement information, and an on-site examination, from which bank supervisors gather further “private information” not reflected in the financial reports. These examinations result in the development of "credit points" ranging from 0 to 100. As noted above, the six key performance dimensions - capital adequacy, asset quality, management quality, earnings, liquidity and sensitivity to market risk - are to be evaluated on a scale of 1 to 5 in ascending order. Following is a description of the graduations of rating: Rating 1 indicates strong performance: BEST rating. Rating 2 reflects satisfactory performance. Rating 3 represents performance that is flawed to some degree. Rating 4 refers to marginal performance and is significantly below average and Rating 5 is considered unsatisfactory: WORST rating.
