RETAIL BANKING NOTES FOR CAIIB 2024:
MODULE – A: INTRODUCTION
Unit – 3: Applicability of Retail Banking Concepts and Distinction Between Retail and Corporate/Wholesale Banking
OUTSOURCING: End to end outsourcing, partial outsourcing, predominant outsourcing and in-house sourcing are some of the common strategies that are employed in the banking sector.
Regulatory prescriptions are one of the major determinants of outsourcing or lack of it in these banks.
Foreign Banks: In some foreign banks, both front-end & back-end operations are outsourced and, in some others, the back-end operations are outsourced while the front-end operations such as sourcing of HNI clients are done through captive resources.
Outsourcing has been classified into four broad classifications (envisaged by the Boston group). These were defined based on the technology & customer interface capabilities of the banks. The classifications are as follows:
Important Topic:- CAIIB RETAIL BANKING STUDY MATERIAL
- Horizontally Organised Model
- Vertically Organised Model
- Predominantly Vertically Organised Model
- Predominantly Horizontally Organised Model
Horizontally Organised Model: This is a modular structure that uses different process models for different products and offers product-wise end-to-end solutions.
Vertically Organised Model: This model provides functionality across products with customer database orientation as well as where a centralised customer database is used across the products.
Predominantly horizontally organised model is mostly product-oriented with common customer information for some products. In a Vertically organised model, predominantly, common information is available for most of the products there are.
Most of the Public Sector Banks employs a Horizontally Organised Model as the standard norm while the new private sector banks generally follow a Vertically Organised Model.

Overall segmentation game plan of the bank, branches are usually classified into the following Centres to have a clear business focus:
- Resource Centres,
- Profit Centres,
- Priority Centres and
- General Centres.

Liability products: These are offered to retail banking customers under three spaces are – 1. Savings Accounts, 2. Current Accounts and 3. Term Deposit Accounts. Product differentiation: The differentiation among the liability products is best achieved by adding different value propositions in the products. (For example Value from a plain vanilla account to a value enriched account.)
Retail Products: The financing of Retail Assets forms a major component of the retail banking model of banks and banks adopt different process models for retail asset products.
Not all the Public Sector Banks are in the credit card business because of its big volume game and because it needs process efficiencies.
In the development process: In the process of development, geography is not given importance but branch type & center and business potential are given due importance.
Centralized Retail Assets Processing Centres: The common form of process models is Centralised Retail Assets Processing Centres where all the retail loans (that are sourced at the branches and marketing team) are processed at a single point and assets are financed through that centre or processing is alone done at the centre and financing is done at the branches.

Tangibilisation Process: Opening of account, Issue of Cheque Book, ATM Card/Debit Card, Pass Book, PIN Mailers for the Cards are the stages in the process of tangibilisation (Centralized Processing).
Process time is a major differentiator in the efficacy of operations of retail banking. Process Time is both business-sensitive as well as customer sensitive.
Standalone pricing for different products & services forms the basic structure.
Important Determinants: There are 2 determinants of Price Structuring i.e quantum & volume. It (Structuring) also involves price bundling in which holistic pricing is offered across a specific bundling of products & services so that the T. price proposition becomes more attractive than the standalone pricing for the individual products in the bundle.
This form of structuring is a cross-selling strategy that is used to entice the customer to avail more products from the banks so that profitability per customer is enhanced.
The technology models that are generally adopted by banks are In-House Models, Outsourced Models, Partially In-House & partially Outsource Models.
