Preface:
By the grace of ALLAH the Almighty and the benevolence of Prophet MOHAMMAD (Sallal-laho Alaihe Wa Alehi Wasallam), we have been able to present this project report. After studying about Financial Institutions theoretically one desire to develop practical skills either by working in an organization or by doing project work on an organization. Financial Institutions are crucial for the economic well being of a country. They play an important role in the development of the country. Banking industry has always played a vital role in the success of economies. The practice is carried out since primitive ages. Multinational banks are now dealing in money and are laying the foundations for countries to stand on their own feet. The project work proved to be extremely helpful in learning about the functions and operations of a bank and how different kinds of procedures at bank are carried out. Although, this single project work is not enough to know delicately about every aspect, but somehow it had the initial touch of being in a practical world. Banking is both a sacred and sophisticated profession. In Pakistan United Bank Limited has always been in the forefront of this profession and stands on 2nd position in ranking of commercial banks.

During this project work at United Bank we tried our level best to acquaint our self with the operations of the bank and as a result learnt a lot. What we have learnt during our project at UBL is being presented here for the readers. We are very grateful to many people, whose help and support at different stages of our work enabled us to write this report. I would like to thank all the staff members of United Bank Limited especially Mr. T. J. Shariq, whose interview help us a lot in our project work. We believe that the process of learning never stops. This report is the first step towards the long journey of acquisition of knowledge .May Allah
be with us in all tests of times.

Dedication:

To our Parents & To our Teachers

Its representative offices are in Tehran, Kazakhstan, and China. It has joint venture with National Bank of Pakistan in United States of America by the name of United National Bank Limited.

Historical Background:
The decision to establish UBL was taken in June 1959 and the company was registered on July 24, 1959. United Bank Limited started the operations on November 7, 1959. On 9 th November 1959 the Gazette of Pakistan notified and included UBL in its list of scheduled banks operating in Pakistan. The bank continued its operations as private banking company until 31st December 1973 when it was nationalized by the government of Pakistan. (Regime of Butto) The bank was working as nationalized bank when the government decide to privitize some banks. So the privitization program started in 1991. 51% of the smaller Muslim Commercial Bank successfully sold. Thereafter, via an employee buyout, the smallest Allied Bank sold. Privitization of the larger but more problematic United Bank

successfully attempted 3 times between 1991 & 1996. Meanwhile its condition continued to deteriorate and the market share fell from 27% to 7%. At the end of the year 1996 the bank had: Negative Equity Heavy and continuing operating losses du to: Overstaffing, 21,500 employees Overbranching, 1,701 branches NPLs (Non performing loans), 60% of total loans

A lack of systems and controls across the board. Demoralized staff, declining deposits and market share.

Now the management decide to take some preventive steps to make the performance better and to put united bank on a progressive track once again. So they made a strategy consisting of three phases: Phase One: (Jul Dec 97) Stem the Bleeding

Phase Two: (Jan Jun 98) Create Key Building Blocks

Phase Three: (Jul 98 Onwards) Consolidate and position for growth

So according to the strategy they first focus on key people. They made strong board of directors by hiring people from Private sectors and also took CEOs from major local and foreign companies. They change 33 key positions and identify internal seniors to retain and drive change. They downsize the staff from 21,500 to 8,525 in order

to cut the costs. They reduce the number of branches from 1,701 to 1,112 and focus on rationalization of branches and zones. They arrest the NPLs and block 80,000 deposits in default. They start rebuilding oversease network. They facilitate the recovery of bad debts by setting up specialized remedial management units. They implement technology plan by making the zones or regions PCbased. They then build oversease franchises, develop strategies, staff up, clean out NPLs and improve the services. They deepen corporate banking efforts and implement SME strategy to protect top consumer relationships. Due to all these steps the market share quickly increase from 7% to 10% and the performance improved. The overall purpose was to reposition it for privitization. In 2002 the government of Pakistan sold it in an open auction, main sponsers include Abu Dhabi group and Best Way group having 25.50% of its shares each. While the balance is held with the government of Pakistan and the general public. In 2002 it merged its operations in the UK with those belonging to National Bank of Pakistan to form United National Bank Limited, of which it owns 55%, with National Bank of Pakistan owning the remainder. Since its privatization the bank has been successfully turned around and remains a robust and strong performer in all major segments of its operations.
