NTB is expanding its branch network. One of my nephews has been promoted as the Manager for Embilipitiya Branch. It will be opened in this month

Today he told me that they opened few branches recently and first day deposit target of Rs.100 mln and every branch has achieved the target. Their strengths according to him are;
1. 365 day banking.
2. Late hours banking - they opened their branches till 6.00 pm.
3. Doorstep banking.
Can these strengths make the NTB strong? I am in favor, how do you feel?

For short term NTB is useless.There are lot of shares easily giving 10% return.For NTB it may take weeks or months.

I felt that Customer Service and Care department is pretty mediocre just like any other government bank. Shocked
Pretty faces and smiles may win initially but will customers stay longer is the case. Cool

This is my personal opinion, when i was in big trouble, when some of the banks refuse to help, i felt NTB took huge risk for me, so am loyal to them as customer.

I appreciate your loyalty as I have interest in NTB.
But my experience with them was horrible.

Yes, your personal experiences matter most. But, look those factors mentioned in the message are not new. All has been there and are not competitive determinants.
It's not small bank any more, so no base effects advantage. It's roughly equal size of DFCC & NDB, both now commercial banks

In banking, most important deposit is not fixed deposit, it's checking & savings...
Those deposit targets are individually excellent, but in the industry, they are not vast. Look at the big picture

NTB was good at customer service in getting the customers but later experience was not that good. Like Kithsiri said the " pretty faces" aka dumb blonds mostly the Inner circle manageress do not know the technical side of things. Also they have lowered the foreign currency selling prices more than other banks. Have an account with them since they gave a higher rate for money from overseas clients. Their online portal deposit rates are lower than the actual rates given at branches so the online portal is not helpful as well apart from checking balance. Shifting to HNB soon. They operate in a niche so not sure about the expansion strategy. Seylan may be a better option than NTB if looking for a good return if you are looking at mid range banks.

As per my experience,Followings are the few weeknesses that NTB has to rectify

Most of branch managers are not qualified enough to be a branch managers. they have just years banking exprience in other banks and don't have much paper qualifications. So they are very bad at customer service and good follower of their top managers. Some senior Managers also not qualified (not all but dept like IT ) and As a result of this, branch managers never get good advices from their senior managers to maintain a long lasting customer base.

another weakness is that They just go behind the FDs and they don't keep much weight on other banking products which are more profitable to bank such as current accounts and savings accounts. As per my personal experience their customer service for current account holders is very bad. Most of CA holders end up big fight with bank.

Customers' satisfaction is not easy task. Human's talent, approach & traits vary from person to person. Staff may be well qualified & smart in appearance but poor customer relationship keep all plus points at bay. Waiting time & extensive paper work in attending certain dealings make the customers uncomfortable. This is not limited to NTB, happening most of the banks located in major cities. What I personally noticed that the weight given on human training & development is insufficient.
