is a statistic show the bank`s the company`s account growth:
SWOT analysis of Habib Bank Limited
Strength, weakness, opportunities and threats
of Habib Bank Limited, this kind of analysis plays a critical role for managers
to run the company and absorbent the strength, know how deal and disabling the
weaknesses, take advantage of the evolving market opportunities, and invent
strategies and way to effectively overcome the threats and eventually turning
them to strengths for the Bank.
Strengths: HBL is the oldest and the one
having the most experience, it is the only Pakistani bank, and one of the
biggest Asian banks in Oman. Habib bank was not as old as the other banks in
Oman, but it was able to come across the competition of the banking regional
market. The bank`s managers tend to concentrate on client banking instead of
the product concerned with banking. The bank offers products and services that
are designed especially to customers with individual needs. HBL`s products also play an important role as
a strength. Habib Banks branches in Oman offers diverse products to match all customers’
needs. This gives the customer the option of choosing the product that suits
its needs and field the customer wants to investment, whether he was an
employee with salary or trader. The largest private bank in Pakistan is Bank Habib
limited, expanding its growth in Oman gives the Pakistanis in Oman and the
Omani investors in Pakistan a huge amount of services and facilities. The
network of the bank is large it has largest number of branches in Pakistan between
the private banks, and it has 8 branches across the sultanate.
Weaknesses: The communication between the bank and
customers about the terms and conditions services and products is weak,
especially that the rules vary from Oman to Pakistan. The routine of the
banking job is boring by nature, this may make employees not enthusiastic to
work. The online services do not offer all what the customer needs, many treatments
require the customer to physically attend the branch. The ATM machines of HBL are
not widely available in Oman, specially out of Muscat, this make the forced to
use another`s company`s ATM machine. Many technological advanced services are
still not available, the bank still uses some traditional ways which slow up
the operations. Feedback of customers is missed, HBL in Oman is need of those
feedbacks to develop and enhance its performance. As mentioned before the bank
lack the modern technology in some sections which leads to poor IT running
Opportunities: Due to features of the bank and
high development it is witnessing, the bank is gaining a huge amount of
investments by foreigners, which gives the bank better potential for development.
What also gives the bank bonus in attracting customers and investors, is the Islamic
system it uses which is raising market. Oman`s advanced technological gate and
the working plans for Habib bank to develop its E-banking systems gives new and
huge opportunities to bank. The return of deposit is a service that, attracts
customers, HBL increases its deposits by offering such facilities. HBL has
focused lately in advertisement to show the products it offers.
Threats: The staff of HBL lacks training and
experience this is more obvious at managerial and officer levels. The competition
between the banks is rough in the banking market, especially by international
banks. Other international banks offer good deals and services to their
clients. The high decrease in the prices of gas and oil, leads to changes in
the Omani currency. https://www.slideshare.net/AvinashAdvani2/habib-bank-swot-analysis
Any bank desires to produce services in high quality to its
customers with an affordable fee, this can be achieved through applying
strategies and conditions to accomplish competitive advantage. The bank will get
more clients and investments, or suffer from growth increasing due to
conditions it provides. The customers services, quality of the products offered,
after financing treatments and current account facilities, are all factors that
influence the competitive advantages of as good services with low prices, via
not exchanging currency since Oman and Pakistan exchange investments.
Bank Habib`s Oman comparative advantage vary from form the ones
applied and followed in Pakistan, USA for example, because the advantages are
generated form the market environment. HBL Oman desires to be the rational
customer choice, to unsure its continuation and satisfaction.
when the effects of comparative advantage are moderately
counterbalance by flawed replacements, higher limitations for the most reduced
cost makers will in the long run advantage investors through prevalent returns
or furnish the bank with more assets for marketing. innovative work or authoritative foundation upgrades
to help future development.
Comparative advantage can
be gotten from economies of scale, more effective inward frameworks, area in
geologies with low work or low property costs. These don’t generally suggest
the bank can create a superior item or administration, but instead they can
offer services or products at a lower cost. With regards to worldwide exchange
financial matters, relative points of interest are controlled by circumstance
cost, and any part has comparative advantage at something. HBL has concentrated lately on developing the E-banking online
services and take advantage of that as comparative advantage. The internet
business stage, its merchant relationship and its transportation organize give
a level of scale and effectiveness that is troublesome for retail contenders to
Manufacturing processes: Likewise, with past monetary downturns a few CEO`s have
multiplied down on fetched decrease to secure edges. Sadly, past endeavors to
streamline through reshaping and outsourcing may have disposed of a
considerable lot of the clearer chances to lessen cost. In the meantime,
proceeded with customer disappointment is constraining brokers to rethink their
way to deal with benefit levels. The coming year
will probably observe expanded endeavors around the advancement, streamlined and
reliable procedures, and improvement of preparing and pay to strengthen
appropriate deals practices.
of asset: As the ramifications of the entry of many Omani companies and its
chaperon concentrate on bank wellbeing and soundness turn out to be all the clearer,
banks will probably hope to move to consistence as the ordinary business
action, as opposed to as a progression of segregated administrative reactions.
Generally, Bank Habib will keep on improving its hazard administration
capacities. One region that seems, by all accounts, to be expanding in
significance is the requirement for more viable administration of innovation
based hazard, regardless of whether in view of maturing heritage frameworks or
developing digital dangers. Bank innovation and business pioneers ought to
think about making a move to secure the operational steadiness of their working
stages notwithstanding these dangers.
