A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank

PART-A 1. INDUSTRY PROFILE INTRODUCTION The banking section will navigate through all the aspects of the Banking System in India. It will discuss upon the matters with the birth of the banking concept in the country to new players adding their names in the industry in coming few years. The banker of all banks, Reserve Bank of India (RBI), the Indian Banks Association (IBA) and top 20 banks like IDBI, HSBC, ICICI, ABN AMRO, etc. has been well defined under three separate heads with one page dedicated to each bank. However, in the introduction part of the entire banking cosmos, the past has been well explained under three different heads namely: History of Banking in India Nationalization of Banks in India Scheduled Commercial Banks in India The first deals with the history part since the dawn of banking system in India. Government took major step in the 1969 to put the banking sector into systems and it nationalized 14 private banks in the mentioned year. This has been elaborated in Nationalization Banks in India. The last but not the least explains about the scheduled and unscheduled banks in India. Section 42 (6) (a) of RBI Act 1934 lays down the condition of scheduled commercial banks. The descriptions along with a list of scheduled commercial banks are given on this page. HISTORY OF BANKING IN INDIA Without a sound and effective banking system in India it cannot have a healthy economy. The banking system of India should not only be hassle free but it should be able to meet new challenges posed by the technology and any other external and internal factors. For the past three decades India's banking system has several outstanding achievements to its credit. The most striking is its extensive reach. It is no longer confined to only metropolitans or cosmopolitans in India. In fact, Indian banking system has reached even to the remote corners of the country. This is one of the main reasons of India's growth

A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank process. The government's regular policy for Indian bank since 1969 has paid rich dividends with the nationalization of 14 major private banks of India. Not long ago, an account holder had to wait for hours at the bank counters for getting a draft or for withdrawing his own money. Today, he has a choice. Gone are days when the most efficient bank transferred money from one branch to other in two days. Now it is simple as instant messaging or dial a pizza. Money have become the order of the day. The first bank in India, though conservative, was established in 1786. From 1786 till today, the journey of Indian Banking System can be segregated into three distinct phases. They are as mentioned below: Early phase from 1786 to 1969 of Indian Banks Nationalization of Indian Banks and up to 1991 prior to Indian banking sector Reforms. New phase of Indian Banking System with the advent of Indian Financial & Banking Sector Reforms after 1991. To make this write-up more explanatory, I prefix the scenario as Phase I, Phase II and Phase III.

Phase I The General Bank of India was set up in the year 1786. Next came Bank of Hindustan and Bengal Bank. The East India Company established Bank of Bengal (1809), Bank of Bombay (1840) and Bank of Madras (1843) as independent units and called it Presidency Banks. These three banks were amalgamated in 1920 and Imperial Bank of India was established which started as private shareholders banks, mostly Europeans shareholders. In 1865 Allahabad Bank was established and first time exclusively by Indians, Punjab National Bank Ltd. was set up in 1894 with headquarters at Lahore. Between 1906 and 1913, Bank of India, Central Bank of India, Bank of Baroda, Canara Bank, Indian Bank, and Bank of Mysore were set up. Reserve Bank of India came in 1935. During the first phase the growth was very slow and banks also experienced periodic failures between 1913 and 1948. There were approximately 1100 banks, mostly small. To streamline the functioning and activities of commercial banks, the Government of India came up with The Banking Companies Act, 1949 which was later changed to Banking Regulation Act 1949 as per amending Act of 1965 (Act No. 23 of 1965). Reserve Bank of Department of Management Studies, M.S.Engineering College. Bangalore Page 2

A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank India was vested with extensive powers for the supervision of banking in India as the Central Banking Authority. During those day’s public has lesser confidence in the banks. As an aftermath deposit mobilization was slow. Abreast of it the savings bank facility provided by the Postal department was comparatively safer. Moreover, funds were largely given to traders.

Phase II Government took major steps in this Indian Banking Sector Reform after independence. In 1955, it nationalized Imperial Bank of India with extensive banking facilities on a large scale especially in rural and semi-urban areas. It formed State Bank of India to act as the principal agent of RBI and to handle banking transactions of the Union and State Governments all over the country. Seven banks forming subsidiary of State Bank of India was nationalized in 1960 on 19th July, 1969, major process of nationalization was carried out. It was the effort of the then Prime Minister of India, Mrs. Indira Gandhi. 14 major commercial banks in the country was nationalized. Second phase of nationalization Indian Banking Sector Reform was carried out in 1980 with seven more banks. This step brought 80% of the banking segment in India under Government ownership. The following are the steps taken by the Government of India to Regulate Banking Institutions in the Country: 1949: Enactment of Banking Regulation Act. 1955: Nationalization of State Bank of India. 1959: Nationalization of SBI subsidiaries. 1961: Insurance cover extended to deposits. 1969: Nationalization of 14 major banks. 1971: Creation of credit guarantee corporation. 1975: Creation of regional rural banks. 1980: Nationalization of seven banks with deposits over 200 crore. After the nationalization of banks, the branches of the public sector bank India rose to approximately 800% in deposits and advances took a huge jump by 11,000%. Department of Management Studies, M.S.Engineering College. Bangalore Page 3

A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank Banking in the sunshine of Government ownership gave the public implicit faith and immense confidence about the sustainability of these institutions. Phase III This phase has introduced many more products and facilities in the banking sector in its reforms measure. In 1991, under the chairmanship of M Narasimham, a committee was set up by his name which worked for the liberalization of banking practices. The country is flooded with foreign banks and their ATM stations. Efforts are being put to give a satisfactory service to customers. Phone banking and net banking is introduced. The entire system became more convenient and swift. Time is given more importance than money. The financial system of India has shown a great deal of resilience. It is sheltered from any crisis triggered by any external macroeconomics shock as other East Asian Countries suffered. This is all due to a flexible exchange rate regime, the foreign reserves are high, the capital account is not yet fully convertible, and banks and their customers have limited foreign exchange exposure.

BANKS IN INDIA In India the banks are being segregated in different groups. Each group has their own benefits and limitations in operating in India. Each has their own dedicated target market. Few of them only work in rural sector while others in both rural as well as urban. Many even are only catering in cities. Some are of Indian origin and some are foreign players. All these details and many more is discussed over here. The banks and its relation with the customers, their mode of operation, the names of banks under different groups and other such useful information’s are talked about. One more section has been taken note of is the upcoming foreign banks in India. The RBI has shown certain interest to involve more of foreign banks than the existing one recently. This step has paved a way for few more foreign banks to start business in India. Major Banks in India •

2. COMPANY PROFILE Company History: The HSBC Group is named after its founding member, The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited, which was established in 1865 to finance the growing trade between Europe, India and China. The inspiration behind the founding of the bank was Thomas Sutherland, a Scot who was then working for the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company. He realized that there was considerable demand for local banking facilities in Hong Kong and on the China coast and he helped to establish the bank, which opened in Hong Kong in March 1865 and in Shanghai a month later. Soon after its formation the bank opened agencies and branches around the world. Although that network reached as far as Europe and North America, the emphasis was on building up representation in China and the rest of the Asia-Pacific region. HSBC was a pioneer of modern banking practices in a number of countries. In Japan, where a branch was established in 1866, the bank acted as adviser to the government on banking and currency. In 1888, it was the first bank to be established in Thailand, where it printed the country’s first banknotes. From the outset trade finance was a strong feature of the local and international business of the bank, an expertise that has been recognized throughout its history. Bullion, exchange, merchant banking and note issuing also played an important part. By the 1880s, the bank was acting as banker to the Hong Kong government and also participated in the management of British government accounts in China, Japan, Penang and Singapore. In 1874 the bank handled China’s first public loan and thereafter issued most of China’s public loans. What is HSBC? We are the world’s local bank.

k) FUTURE GROWTH AND PROSPECTS: Emerging markets will continue to outperform developed economies this year, but policymakers will continue to face the challenge of rising inflationary pressure, said Fred Neumann, managing director and co-chief of Asian Economics Research for the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank (HSBC). He also remains optimistic about Thai economy, saying political uncertainty is only a short-term issue. "Emerging markets re-accelerated in the fourth quarter last year," Neumann said, referring to the HSBC emerging markets index (EMI) quarterly weighted composite indicators based on 20 manufacturing and service sectors derived from the Purchasing Managers Department of Management Studies, M.S.Engineering College. Bangalore Page 27

A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank Index (PMIs) surveys conducted across 16 emerging markets. The EMI rose to 55.7 in the fourth quarter versus 54.2 in the third quarter, he said in a teleconference from Hong Kong. Manufacturing has rebounded especially in China, India, Israel, Poland and Turkey, he explained, adding that India had recorded strongest growth in new exports in the fourth quarter, while China's new exports growth was modest but fastest in three quarters. Neumann said domestic demand in emerging market has been driving growth. Domestic demand outperformed exports last year, and two of the top 10 markets showing export growth were the emerging markets of India and Czech Republic, which reflected continued weak demand from the West. This demonstrates a de-coupling from the West as trade among emerging markets has increased, and if more trade barriers were dismantled, trade between these markets would even rise higher, Neumann added. "I do believe the de-coupling will remain, growth of spending by Chinese consumers is higher than US consumers," he said in response to a question on whether de-coupling would remain in the next few years. However, he warned that the biggest risk was inflationary pressure. If policy-makers are unable to tame inflation to prevent overheating of their economies, it could lead to the bursting of the asset bubble. Then emerging economies would become vulnerable and suffer a slump for many years. Yet, Neumann said he did not think inflation would spiral upward as it did in 2008, when crude oil prices exceeded $100 a barrel, but that the increase would be gradual. He said he expected central banks in Asia to tighten monetary policy rates in order tame inflation. Neumann also said he did not believe that Bank of Thailand would raise the policy rate in the next meeting as it could afford a bit of inflationary pressure in order to let the economy grow. He is also opti?mistic about the future of the Thai economy. "Political headwinds are a short-term problem and the fundamentals of Thai economy is very sound," Neumann said. Thailand is expected to be among the top 30 largest economies in the world, led by China, in 2050, according to HSBC's long-term projections. Thailand should climb by seven places and be ranked at 22 among 30. The size of the economy is expected to be worth $856 billion in 2050 and per capita income should rise to $11,674 from $2,744 in 2010.

3. MCKENSY’S 7S FRAME WORK: There are many management approaches which talk about managing the things and Operation in an organization. One of the famous modes to analyze the pattern of management is Mc 7’s frame work. The 7’s model is better known as Mc Kinsey’s, this is because the two persons who developed this module. Tompetus & Robert waterman has been consultant at Mc Kinsey’s and co. They described that an organization is not that just structured but consist of 7’s elements. This can be distinguished into so called Hard S’s & Soft S’s. The model is very much helpful in viewing the interrelationship of strategy formation and interpretation it focus manger attention to a verification of activities. That may effect the implementation of any strategy as the model originally developed as a way of thinking more broadly about the problem of organizing effectively. It is a judge tool for the implementation of the strategy. The 7’s model is mainly distinguished into two types. 1. Hard S model Department of Management Studies, M.S.Engineering College. Bangalore Page 29

A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank 2. Soft S model The hardest elements are visible and easy to identify as they can be found in a strategy elements, corporate plans, organization charts and other documentation of the company. They are 1. Strategy 2. System 3. Structure The soft element involves difficulty in describing there capabilities, values, and elements of corporate culture. They are. 1. Style 2. Staff 3. Skills 4. Shared values

Style refers to the employee’s shared & common ways of thinking & behaving unwritten norms of behavior & thought. Style also refers to the way management behaves &collectively spends its time to achieve organizational goals. There are various ways of leadership style which can be adopted. Sharing leadership is key to the white stag philosophy of leadership, because overtly promotes the distribution of the function of the leader among the group. An individual style in interacting with others is an outward sign of the substance within experience, we can really tell a lot about people’s capabilities by looking at them but it is better to watch them in action. Leadership style in HSBCBANK: It has been observed in HSBC BANK that the behavior of superior towards the subordinate is much decent & pleasant. The superior motivate the fresher who are working under them. The superior tells the subordinate what exactly he has to do, the objective of the work is clearly defined to them, any difficulty in accomplishing the task the superior can be consulted & he/she guides in a proper direction. It is also observed that while speaking to their subordinate, superiors move very friendly & affectionately & moreover the views of subordinates are considered for decision making. As a fresher I observed that the superiors respect our efficiency & they view us an important participant in the objectives of the company as well as relationship with subordinates. The superior in charge periodically conducts meetings with their subordinates & set the tasks ahead, periodically seminars are conducted to get the new updated information. SO THE LEADERSHIP STYLE FOLLOWED IN HSBC BANK IS PARTICIPATIVE STYLE.

Department of Management Studies, M.S.Engineering College. Bangalore Page 33

A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank ➢ STRATERGY:

The word strategy has been derived from Greek word “Strategos” which means general. Strategy is the pattern of objectives, purposes, or goals stated in such a way as to define what business the company is in or are to be in & the kind of company it is or it is to be strategy is a systematic action & allocation of resources to achieve company aims. Strategy of HSBC BANK: HSBC BANK seeks to perform its role in the social sector through a dedication, not a profit group they are the social initiative group. The strategies include the following initiatives:  This is in recognition of the fact that resources being limited, the efficient use is imperative if the maximum number is to be benefited.  Cost effectiveness 

The initiative drawn must be scalable; scalability implies the ability to draw upon the important elements, it should be possible to do so at national level, even if the program itself is not directly scalable it should be possible to take away significant lessons from it in order to enrich work in other settings.



In order to achieve the achieve the desired objectives or goals in there focus areas, the SIG (SOCIAL INTIATIVE GROUP) tends to support reasonably larged sized initiatives so that issues such as cost effectiveness, scalability & impact assessment can be dealt directly

➢ SYSTEMS:

In McKinsey’s 7s model, systems means any procedures & processes such as manufacturing processes, management information system, budgeting & control processes. In HSBC BANK the branch managers, relationship managers, & business development executives are periodically reviewed of their performance and each branches are ranked as per their branch performance & based on performance the branches ranked. Management information system: This is an interlocking frame work of hardware of people and procedures. The strategic day to day running of the business repairs the speedy collection and flexible interval of information. This help in day to day activities of trading for buying & selling of shares. ➢ SHARED VALUES:

Department of Management Studies, M.S.Engineering College. Bangalore Page 34

A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank Are the values shared by the members of an organization, shared values means that the employees share the same guiding values. Values are things that you would strive for even if they were demonstrably not profitable. Values act as an organization’s role in the larger community in which it functions. The organizations main values are stated in its VISION & MISSION STATEMENTS. So it is the responsibility of every employee of the organization to share these values, so that every employee of the organization can give their best for the achievements of these values. ➢ STAFF:

Staff means that the company has hired able people, trains them well as per the job specifications & assign them the right jobs. It is also observed that staff is given adequate trainings to get exposed to recent techniques in their respective areas. The staff members are also often job rotated to get exposed to various new tasks. Selection, training, reward, recognition, retention, motivation & assignment to appropriate work are all key issues. So it means how an organization effectively recruits, trains their people & assigns them the right job. Human capital is very important at HSBC; the numbers of employees are increasing rapidly. HSBC BANK had just 445 employees in 1997, but in year 2002 the figures stood at 7700, &presently the strength has increased to 14000 employees. Training is a big thing at HSBC; each employee spends at least 69 hours during the year recharging himself. As a rapidly growing organization HSBC BANK gives opportunities to induct PG students from various graded business schools across the country. HSBC is very proud of its ability to nurture the individuals & to develop in them new talents which they possess. “If we are in the verge of completing the management education and believe that the amazing world of banking is for us, there is no better place to start OUR CAREER IN HSBC BANK” (1) Receiving Teller's Department (Teller) - Receives, receipts for and proves deposits, distributes checks to bookkeepers and other departments, prepares exchanges for clearing houses, and turns cash over to the paying teller at end of day.

4. SWOT analysis: A SWOT Analysis is a strategic planning tool used to evaluate the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats involved in a project or in a business venture or in any other situation requiring a decision. It involves monitoring the marketing environment internal and external to the company. The technique is credited to Albert Department of Management Studies, M.S.Engineering College. Bangalore Page 36

A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank Humphrey, who led a research project at Stanford University in the 1960s and 1970s using data from the Fortune 500 companies. •

Strengths: attributes of the organization that is helpful to achieving the objective.



Weaknesses: attributes of the organization that is harmful to achieving the objective.



Opportunities: external conditions those are helpful to achieving the objective.



Threats: external conditions those are harmful to achieving the objective.

The aim of any SWOT analysis is to isolate the key environmental factors that are important to the marketing plans of the organization. SWOT groups key pieces of information into two main categories: •

Internal factors - The 'strengths' and 'weaknesses' internal to the organization, i.e., its strategies and its position in relation to its competitors.



External factors - The 'opportunities' and 'threats' presented by the external environment and the competition.

Strengths and Weaknesses: financial, intellectual, locational, Customer service, Efficiency Competitive advantages, Infrastructure, Quality, Staff, Management, rice Delivery time, Cost Capacity etc,.

Incapability of Customers: HSBC only provides 2 types of account opening of which one is PVA (Power Vantage Account) under which an aqb of 1 lakh is to be maintained & the second one is Premier Account, under which an aqb of 25 lakh is to be maintained. This is sometimes beyond the reach of a middle class person.

Tough Competition:

A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank As there are so many banks having almost same kind of schemes, so it’s tough to compete with.

2

Unawareness: Majority of population is not aware of HSBC brand name and even because of other banking facilities which are much cheaper than HSBC’s services, so it’s hard to convince people.

3

Changing Scenario: Our market scenario is changing day-by-day i.e. our market is fluctuating, so this makes investor hard to invest.

6. LEARNING EXPERIENCE The ten weeks summer project have helped me in learning a lot. This program helped me in understanding the various aspects of banking industry. The training, at HSBC bank was a new and challenging experience. It always remains as a dream, to get an opportunity to take up such study at a private banking sector. Unlike private sectors, the employees working in Public/Government sector do not have the right to take decision by themselves. Department of Management Studies, M.S.Engineering College. Bangalore Page 42

A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank It was a great knowledge based and an excellent training program had in HSBC bank. While at training exposure was gained on the working environment and also the decision making process. It was a great learning experience working with the professional personalities. I collected all the required information of the second part of the Part A that is Company profile and this gave me knowledge about the organization like their mission, vision, their background, history etc... The Part B of the project it was more like a practical experience. The staff member’s encourage and guided me in understanding the internal aspect of the bank like how their bank structure is, their various department and their functions. They gave me a complete insight into their strategies-like what is strategy they are adopting now and in the future to achieve goals of the company. The bank structure which prescribes the formal relationship among various position & activities were clearly defined. HSBC bank develops such kind of relationship which creates confidential understanding between the staff and department. The members in the bank were friendly and co-operative, disciplined, and prompt in their work. They make performance appraisal once in a year for promoting the employees. Decision is taken by taking the views of all the concerned employees who are affected by that decision. Employee’s suggestions are well-come and rewarded. They conduct training and development programs after identifying need for that. They organize both internal and external training. The style which company is following is participative in nature. The decisions were made in the company and the report will be submitted to all departments. The staff members were well co-ordinate and supportive with each other. I learnt what is the present position of the bank through the SWOT analysis. It is very much necessary to understand the theoretical concepts of the subject. These will make an ease for the study and also helps to work efficiently. But during the training period it is needless to say that the theoretical knowledge gained at class room is entirely different from actual practice within the organization. To conclude we may say that, to study the complete organization, pertaining to the nature of the business that they carry, nature of the work flow, ten weeks is very short, there was Department of Management Studies, M.S.Engineering College. Bangalore Page 43

A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank a time constraints. It is a great memorable experience for me that getting experience in Corporate Environment. The project has given an opportunity to learn those practical skills. The project had helped to get familiar with the working environment which is most essential to start the career.

PART-B CHAPTER-1 1. GENERAL INTRODUCTION Customer Satisfaction: Customer satisfaction is equivalent to making sure that product and service performance meets customer expectations. It is the perception of the customer that the outcome of a business transaction is equal to or greater than his/her expectation. Customer satisfaction Department of Management Studies, M.S.Engineering College. Bangalore Page 44

A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank occurs when the acquisition of products and /or services provides a minimum negative departure from expectations when compared with other acquisitions and when the marginal utility of a transaction is equal to or greater than preceding acquisitions. Customer satisfaction occurs when the perception of the reward from the purchase of goods or services by the customer meets or exceeds his/her perceived sacrifice. The perception is a consequence of matching past purchase and consumption experience with the current purchase.

Customer Service and Satisfaction: When we talk about customer service and/or satisfaction, we talk about creativity. Creativity allows us to handle or diffuse problems at hand or later on rather in the process of conducting the everyday business. We talk about how, or what, does the organization have to do to gain not only the sale but also the loyalty of the customer. We want to know the payoff of the transaction both in the short and long term. We want to know what our customers Want? We want to know if our customers are satisfied. Satisfaction, Of course, means that what we delivered to a customer met the customer’s Approval. We want to know if customers are delighted and willing to come Back, and so on. Fleiss 2 and Feldman 3 present examples of that delightfulness in their writings. Fleiss has written about Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and Feldman has discussed excellence in a cab ride. As important as delightfulness is, some of us minimize it, or even totally disregard it. At this point, we fail. Some of the issues that will guarantee failure in sales, satisfaction, and loyalty are: Employees must adhere to a rigid chain of command Employees are closely supervised Conflict—in whatever form—is not allowed Rewards are based on carrot-and-stick principles Wrong objectives are measure.

We must understand customer expectation levels concerning quality. We must also understand the strategy for customer service quality, and next we must understand the measurement and feedback cycles of Customer satisfaction. The customer is the person or unit receiving the output of a process on the system. In fact, it is worth emphasizing that a customer can be the immediate, intermediate, or ultimate Department of Management Studies, M.S.Engineering College. Bangalore Page 45

A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank customer. Also, a customer may be a person or persons, or a process or processes. Customer satisfaction, however, is when the customer is satisfied with a product/service that meets the customer’s needs, wants, and expectations. There are at least three levels of customer expectations about quality: Level 1. Expectations are very simple and take the form of assumptions, must have, or take it for granted. For example, I expect the airline to be able to take off, fly to my destination, and land safely. I expect to get the correct blood for my blood transfusion and I expect the bank to deposit my money to my account and to keep a correct tally for me. Level 2. Expectations are a step higher than that of level 1 and they require some form of satisfaction through meeting the requirements and/or specifications. For example, I expect to be treated courteously by all airline personnel. I went to the hospital expecting to have my hernia repaired, to be in some pain after it was done, to be out on the same day, and to receive a correct bill. And I went to the bank expecting the bank teller to be friendly, informative, and helpful with my transactions. Level 3. Expectations are much higher than for levels 1 and 2. Level 3 requires some kind of delightfulness or a service that is so good that it attracts me to it. For example, an airline gives passengers traveling coach class the same superior food service that other airlines provide only for first-class passengers. In fact, I once took a flight where the flight attendants actually baked cookies for us right there on the plane. When I went to the hospital, I expected staff to treat me with respect and they carefully explained things to me. But I was surprised when they called me at home the next day to find out how I was doing. And at my house closing, the bank officer, representing the bank holding my mortgage, not only treated me with respect and answered all my questions about my new mortgage, but just before we shook hands to close the deal, he gave me a housewarming gift.

Customer satisfaction surveys help to: Improve customer, client, or employee loyalty.

1.4 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY Data Collection Techniques: This project consists of two parts. The first part is a study of the banking industry, HSBC Bank using secondary data sources. This secondary information has been sourced from the internet and from business related magazines and newspapers. The second part of the study has been done using an exploratory research process and a structured questionnaire was developed for this purpose. For the collection of primary data this was the only method used. The reason I used this method is because a need was felt for the free influx of information about the products. Also this method allowed the use of skills gained in class. Sample Design: The population considered for the purpose of the survey was people residing in Bangalore. Sampling Technique Used: Since the information required was not of a very technical nature and also looking at the scope of the project and the extent of the target segment, the sampling technique employed was Convenience Sampling. I administered the questionnaires.

Sample Size:

Department of Management Studies, M.S.Engineering College. Bangalore Page 48

A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank I have restricted the sample size to 50 respondents. This was done keeping in mind the time constraints and the fact that I felt that this number would be enough to serve the information needs required to show the trends.

1.5 LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY •

The study was confined to Bangalore city only



The time constraint was that the respondents gave only limited time for the data collection.



Due to limited time period and constrained working hours for most of the respondents, the answers at times were vague.



The finding of this study was based on the assumptions that the respondents have diverged true and honest information.



Sampling size is restricted to 50 respondents only.



The study also limited due to various constraints like time, manpower resources and financial availability and also primary data.



Making accurate predictions relating to customer behavior is very difficult.



The views and responses of the respondents may change over a period of the time.



The bias of the respondents may have introduced errors in the survey findings.

3.2 SUGGESTIONS A. Best play in a buoyant environment

Favorable macro, buoyant Market

related

revenues and a benign environment for asset quality. 1) HSBC as a player focused on maintaining and /or improving Market share in

key

business segments, particularly retail lending- Will, in our view, benefit immensely form a positive operating Environment. 2.) Pricing power in consumer financing segment profitability against potential shocks.

Department of Management Studies, M.S.Engineering College. Bangalore Page 70

A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank 3.)

HSBC enjoys a dominant market position across customer Categories in retail

lending. The strong market position and robust Demand for consumer financing vests significant pricing power With HSBC is believed either by allowing a hike in lending rates, Negotiating higher subvention form manufacturers of cutting Distribution costs. 4.) Strong pricing power and a balance sheet that is significantly biased towards retail lending buffers HSBC profitability from in the bank's funding cost. 5.) In line with consensus, we recommend buy HSBC for growth Reasons and not for the relative valuation appeal. It is not so much about HSBC but about their respective operating metrics and growth conditions. Market has rewarded both strategies: HSBC broad-based strategy allows capturing value across the Value chain in a customer segment; and HSBC like other large players in the private sector, enjoys favorable conditions arising from a restrictive regulatory/policy Environment towards new entrants and foreign banks and slow Pace of reforms for state-owned banks is believed.

4.CONCLUSION: Thus, HSBC has been able to use technology to provide value-added service to its customers during the last few years. For HSBC, technology is an integral part of their business. However, their overall progress could have been smoother but for certain internal and extraneous factors and also a pressure on spread due to a competitive market (Annual report, 2000 –01). E-banking has become a necessary survival weapon and is fundamentally changing the banking industry worldwide. Today, the click of the mouse offers customers banking services at a much lower cost and also empowers them with unprecedented freedom in choosing vendors for their financial service needs. No country today has a choice- whether to implement E-banking or not given the global and competitive nature of the economy. HSBC have to upgrade and constantly think of new innovative customized packages and services to remain competitive. The invasion of banking by technology has created an information age and commoditization of banking Department of Management Studies, M.S.Engineering College. Bangalore Page 71

A Study on Customer Satisfaction Towards HSBC Bank services. HSBC have come to realize that survival in the new e-economy depends on delivering some or all of their banking services on the Internet while continuing to support their traditional infrastructure. The rise of E-banking is redefining business relationships and the most successful banks will be those that can truly strengthen their relationship with their customers. Without any doubt, the international scope of E-banking provides new growth perspectives and Internet business is a catalyst for new technologies and new business processes.
