CAIIB RETAIL BANKING MODULE – A: INTRODUCTION
Unit – 1: Retail Banking – Introduction
RETAIL BANKING: “Retail Banking is a banking service which is geared primarily toward individual consumers.” Its main focus strictly lies on consumer markets, unlike wholesale banking.
Extended to Small & medium businesses: Although retail banking is mass-market driven, many of its products may also extend to small & medium sized businesses.
Pure Retail Banking: It is generally conceived to be the provision of mass market banking services provided to private individuals.
Attractive interest spreads: As the spreads are wide and since customers are too fragmented to bargain effectively; Credit risk tends to be well diversified because the loan amounts are relatively small.
Less Volatility: Retail Banking has less volatility in demand & its credit cycle than from large corporates or whole sale banking. Though there are higher delinquencies especially in unsecured retail loans & credit card receivables in retail.
In some banks, Retail Banking is christened as consumer banking because the focus is towards individual consumers.

Telegraph: Telegraph was introduced in the early 1850s that made the process of communication & information exchange faster and also reduced the price differentials among stock markets.
Banking services follow the standard industrial development pattern in which prices decline with the maturity.
Interest Income: The share of interest income has almost remained steady at about 84% & the share of non-interest income also has almost been stable at around 16%. This shows that there were not really any serious efforts by banks to increase the non-interest income through fee-based products or 3rd party distribution models.
PSBs Initiative: Retail Banking as a concept in India has been initiated by the Public Sector Banks and has been nurtured by the foreign banks and new generation private sector banks.
Growth: Retail Banking had grown by a compounded annual growth rate of 30.5% between 1999 & 2004 and was expected to grow at above 30% in 2010.
But still the penetration level of retail banking in India is very low if it were to be compared to the other Asian countries like China, Thailand, Malaysia, etc.

- Generating superior returns on the assets.

Public Sector Banks: In India, PSBs (in general) have adopted the Departmental Approach as their retail banking business model. In this model, the business for retail banking has been built as a part of the overall business plan & not conducted as a separate departmental activity, leave alone SBUs.
Private Sector Banks: While in new generation private sector banks have very clear the business model. They have had set up Strategic Business Units (SBUs) to have clear focus & business objectives.
The set up as a SBU by Private Sector Banks is more of a Management by Objectives (MBO) process. Herein the business model is taken as a modular strategy for achieving targeted profits with a provision to knockdown the module, if the retail plans do not get translated as per the set objectives.
Structure of Retail Banking Models: Banks generally structure their retail banking models mainly on a positioning platform while foreign banks generally do not go by positioning objectives but purely on business objectives.
