Vision of ICICI Bank

Over the last few years, the ICICI Bank has taken rapid strides in
developing new businesses in line with its proposition to offer complete
financial services to both corporate and retail customers.
ICICI Bank is committed to enriching this valuable resource which in turn,
will allow it to bring innovative practices to the world of financial services
in India. With technology playing the key role mainly.
The vision is to develop ICICI Bank into an organization that is
empowered by bright and talented individuals, working in teamsandriding
on the backbone of world class technology.

History
The ICICI Bank was originally promoted in 1994 by ICICI Limited, an
Indian financial institution, and was its wholly owned subsidiary. ICICI's
shareholding in ICICI Bank was reduced to 46% through a public offering
of shares in India in fiscal year 1998, an equity offering in the form of
ADRs listed on the NYSE in fiscal year 2000, ICICI Bank's acquisition of
Bank of Madura Limited in an all-stock amalgamation in fiscal year 2001,
and secondary market sales by ICICI to institutional investors in fiscal
year 2001 and fiscal year 2002. ICICI was formed in year 1955 at the
10

initiative of the World Bank, the Government of India and representatives


of Indian industry. The principal objective was to create a development
financial institution for providing the medium-term and long-term project
financing to Indian businesses. In the 1990s, the ICICI transformed its
business from a development financial institution offering only single
project finance to a diversified financial services group offering a wide
variety of products and services, both directly and through a number of
subsidiaries and affiliates like ICICI Bank. In 1999, the ICICI become the
first Indian company and the first bank or financial institution from nonJapan Asia to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

MARKETING STRATEGIES
Market Strategy of ICICI Bank:
ICICI Bank uses the concept of Universal Banking
In universal banking, large banks operate extensively in networks of
branches, provide many different services, hold several claims on firms
(including equity and debt), and participate directly in the corporate
governance of firms that rely on the banks for funding or as insurance
underwriters. It means the ability to offer i.e. sell and underwrite all the
types of products and services to any set of clients, either through a
single or through a group of companies. The practice of Universal
Banking varies across several countries. India faces a very high
regulatory burden although now a conglomerate structure of the universal
banking has already been permitted .Many international players like ABNAMRO, Citigroup, HSBC, Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan Chase, Lehman
Brothers have realized the benefits of Universal Banking. The ICICI Bank
has also joined these international players. The ICICI Bank functions as a
universal bank through itself and its associate companies in the areas of
corporate finance, commercial banking, personal banking, investment
banking, asset management, investor services and insurance. The
11

Universal Banking provides competitive advantage in the current scenario


through large product suite, diversified resource base, Economies of
scale and scope, Optimization of human and financial capital.
In a span of just four years, the ICICI Bank has emerged as a consumer
banking behemoth. With a retail book of over Rs 56,000 crores (Rs 560
billion) and a market share that is the envy of competition -- it has a share
of over 30 per cent The ICICI Bank today has reached a commanding
position.
The bank boasts of the widest integrated technology platform in the
country and only a fourth of its business takes place at its branches and
subsidiaries.
Its legacy of non-performing assets (NPAs) -- for which it has been rated
below its peers earlier -- is now almost history with net NPLs (nonperforming loans) down to 2 per cent.
Armed with a much stronger balance sheet, the ICICI Bank is
aggressively foraying into overseas markets and also has an eye on the
rural India.
Rural India is an opportunity, somewhat premature, but in the next 12-18
months the banks strategy will be seen there. Bank is looking at new agri
lending as something that is directed; it's a viable business proposition,
but it has to be driven very carefully. The bank can't have branches there
because that is not workable in terms of costs.
The solution to this problem is to partner with the micro-credit institutions,
corporate providing inputs or buying products from the farmer and selfhelp groups.

Major Steps Taken:


12

In 2001 ICICI acquired the Bank of Madura (est. In 1943). The Bank of
Madura was a Chettiar bank, and had acquired the Chettinad Mercantile
Bank (est. In 1933) and the Illanji Bank (est. in 1904) in the 1960s.
In 2007 ICICI amalgamated the Sangli Bank, which was headquartered
in Sangli, in Maharashtra State, and which had 158 branches in
Maharashtra state and another 31 in Karnataka State. ICICI also received
permission from the government of Qatar to open a branch in Doha and
from the US Federal Reserve to open a branch in New York city. ICICI
Bank Eurasia opened a second branch in St. Petersburg.
In 2008 the ICICI Bank launched iMobile, a comprehensive Mobile
banking solution. iMobile is considered to be a breakthrough innovation in
the Indian Banking which allows a customer to do all possible
transactions through a GPRS-enabled mobile phone easily and
conveniently.

Global Market Strategy:


The global opportunity spectrum is changing dramatically, and in the next
three years, the banks global business will contribute one-third of the
book top line and bottom-line. Today it's about only 10-12 per cent. The
NRI (people living abroad) is a great customer and the other is the Indian
corporate who is globalising -- either in the trade business or is setting up
businesses abroad.
Banks USP (unique selling proposition) is a unique technology; it can get
customers to talk to his constituents online. The NRI is an interesting link
because today he has tremendous needs in India; he wants to remit
money, purchase a commodity, buy a home, especially the H1 visa guys.
This year 10 per cent of the home loans will be lended to NRIs.

13

In the United Kingdom the ICICI bank have a partnership with Lloyds
Bank and are present in 30 branches there, promoting joint products, and
they get new customers.
In the United States the ICICI bank have a tie-up with Wells Fargo and
their customers can start a remittance into India from any channel.

Advertising Strategy:
Amitabh Bachchan as brand ambassador of ICICI:
Under the agreement, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan endorsed and promoted all
the products and services offered by ICICI and its Group companies for a
period of two years.
During his term as the brand ambassador, he played a key role in all
major brand and product communication by ICICI. He endorsed the ICICI
brand through corporate and product campaigns on television, print and
outdoor medium. Mr. Bachchan also participated in select events such as
14

new product launches, various campaigns, and customer reward


programmes etc.

ShahRukh Khan as global brand ambassador of ICICI:


After Mr. Bachchan the ICICI Bank has decided to resort to the celebrity
endorsement route to promote its brand. Almost two-and-a-half years
since superstar Amitabh Bachchan endorsed the ICICI brand, the
company has signed up Shah Rukh Khan as its global ambassador. Shah
Rukh Khan whose increasing global popularity gives synergy to the
growing global presence of ICICI Bank.
Shahrukh Khan is a truly global Indian who embodies the Indian winning
spirit in a true sense. The energy and innovation which Shahrukh Khan
represents coupled with his popularity both in India and abroad make him
the ideal choice for the ICICI Bank, particularly as the Bank makes its
global forays. Within a short span of four years, the ICICI Bank has
established its presence in 12 countries including UK, Canada, US and
the Middle East.

15

Competitors of ICICI Bank:


Its nearest competitors in the private banking sector are HDFC Bank and
AXIS (UTI) Bank.
As compared to ICICI Bank HDFC is frenetically seeking to shrug off the
image of being a one-product company (home loans), by using synergies
that exist with its bank to foray into various areas like e-broking, mutual
funds, and insurance. For ICICI Bank, it is imperative that it moves away
from the high-risk, low-return business of project finance.

ICICI is still puny when compared to HDFC but the objective is very
clear : grow the business, even if it has come at HDFC's cost. Kalpana
Morparia, Executive Director, ICICI, maintains that they got into home
loans simply because it's one of the safest businesses to be in, given the
low default rates. ''Besides, the market is growing and there's space for all
those who wants to enter.

AXIS Bank:
In the case of Axis Bank, retail loans have declined from 30 per cent of
the total loan book of Rs 25,800 crores in June 2006 to around 23 per
cent of loan book of Rs.41,280 crore (as of June 2007). Even over a
longer period, while the overall asset growth for Axis Bank has been quite
high and has matched that of the other banks, retail exposures grew at a
much slower pace.

Why ICICI Bank Leads:


ICICI bank envisaged retail banking as a key area of strategic emphasis
for it with the share of the retail business (both on the funding and
asset sides) growing strongly year after year the share of retail
business, particularly retail assets.
It appears to be following a business strategy that is quite different from
the high-volume and commodity-style approach of AXIS Bank and HDFC
Bank. That strategy also has its pluses in terms of the relatively higher
margins in some segments of the retail business and the in-built credit
risk diversification (and mitigation) achieved through a widely dispersed
retail credit portfolio. ICICI Bank has been able to maintain the quality of
its loan portfolio for a decent time period now.

invested in capital market instruments such as shares, debentures and


other securities. The income earned through these investments and the
capital appreciation realised are shared by its unit holders in proportion to
the number of units owned by them. Thus a Mutual Fund is the most
suitable investment for the common man as it offers an opportunity to
invest in a diversified, professionally managed basket of securities at a
relatively low cost. The flow chart below describes broadly the working of
a mutual fund:

CHAPTER-1
RESEARCH

Objective of Research:
There were basically two objectives of the Market Research that was
conducted among the valuable customers of ICICI Bank. These two
objectives were:

1) To know about the customers perception about Market Linked


Investments;
This was done to find out that what the customers think about various
kinds of market Investments.
2) To find out the knowledge of customers about the various product
offerings of ICICI Bank.
This was done to find out that how much knowledge do the customers
have about the various products of the ICICI Bank of Delhi City.

Before assigning the project:


Being unknown from the Banking sector and its various procedures I had
given training about the ICICI Banks core products, different schemes &
policies going on currently. I had received training about the various
product offerings & Mutual fund schemes so that during my survey I can
convince the valuable customers of ICICI Bank.

Research Work:
51

In the survey work the method of Questionnaire is being used. The


questionnaires are then studied properly to find out about the various
valuable customers of ICICI bank & their knowledge about the product
offerings of ICICI bank.

Field Work:
I conducted a survey for two weeks among various valuable customers.
The survey was about market investment policies. I made the customers
aware of various Mutual Fund schemes & Insurance Plans of ICICI Bank.
I gave them information about the Equity market and the market risks
present in todays scenario. Many customers are convinced about
investing their money in ICICI mutual funds.

Step by step procedure of the survey:


1) Scheduling appointments:
Making telephone calls to all the customers for the appointments.
Many a times customers were busy, sometimes they told me to
reschedule the appointments. Many of the customers were high
profile customers so they were busy all through the week thats why
it was a tough job to take appointments. It proved a challenge for
me to get appointments.
2) View of the customers:
I interacted with all the customers to know about their views related
to the market investments & the risks associated with them. I asked
them that what kind of knowledge they possess about Insurance
Policies such as Life stage pension plans & how much they know
52

about the various schemes of the ICICI bank. I came to know How
they previously invested their money in different schemes & what
kind of profit they gained earlier.
3) Lack of knowledge:
After this interaction I came to know that some of the people do not have
adequate knowledge about market risks & how to achieve superior
returns. Many people were confused about the proper investments &
their returns. They were confused about the securing their future using
various investment plans. Some of the customers were happy by not
investing in the schemes as they thought that they will loose their
principal amount because they do not have proper knowledge.

4) Explanation:
Then I explained them about the market risks & returns. I told them
about the various profitable policies of the ICICI bank and how
those policies can be properly used. I explained them to take the
help of wealth managers of ICICI bank for the proper investments. I
made them aware about the efficiency and capabilities of the
wealth managers of ICICI bank. I convinced them that the
investments made by the ICICI bank are much more secure &
profitable.

5) Query solutions:

53

I solved their queries about the various policies & schemes. I told
them that why the policies & schemes of ICICI bank are more
profitable as compared to policies of other financial institutions.
6)

Agreed for Investment:


After the solution of the queries some of the customers get

convinced to invest in the Mutual funds of ICICI bank.


Limitations of the Study
Shortage of time was the biggest road block in the way of the study.
Most of the customer were hesitating in providing their personal as
well as general data.
It was a quite fagging job to travel in summer in Delhi and to obtain
data from the consumers.
Due to some of the customer's personal relations with ICICI Bank staff
possibility of biased results can not be ruled out.

RESULTS & DISCUSSION
Challenge:

63

Basic challenge of ICICI is the business growth by addressing the more


lucrative and growing segment of middle-class consumers and emerging
corporate.

Objective of ICICI Bank:


Our objective of creating a universal bank providing end-to-end financial
services, clearly required solutions which were based on new-generation
technology, offered end-to-end functionality and were highly flexible and
scalable. Finacle offered all this and much more.
Chanda Kochhar
Joint Managing Director
ICICI Bank Limited

Main challenge faced by the company is retention of clients as well as


increasing its number of clients. The major objective of the survey was to
increase the awareness among customers about the products of ICICI
Bank and about the recent policies and schemes of ICICI bank.

Possible Solution:
Strategic adoption of technology to ensure that ICICI transforms into a
universal bank, which will provide fast and efficient customer service
besides offering the whole gamut of banking and financial services.
64

The retention of clients can be done with better relationship building,


proper interaction and proper care of clients. By understanding the basic
needs of the customers & by analysing the financial situation of the
customers the clients can be easily retained. The approach of the
company should not be product centric. It should primarily focus on
clients and their needs. The risk appetite of the customers should be
calculated properly. The company should understand that when and
under what circumstances the clients need money. The company should
target on fulfilling the short as well as long term goals.
The company should review the portfolio of clients time to time. By proper
monitoring and rebalancing the portfolio at regular intervals the clients
should be retained without any problem.
From the survey ICICI bank gained the knowledge about their various
customers & that there is lack of knowledge among some customers.
Through this survey the customers came to know about the schemes &
policies of ICICI bank and also various product offerings of ICICI bank.
With the help of my survey it was found that most of the customers were
interested in investing their money in Real Estate. Principal protection is
their main target & the main risk according to the Clients is Capital loss.
They expect superior returns from the portfolios in which they invest. And
a lot of the clients were interested in taking the help of the Wealth
managers from ICICI bank.
