BRAC Bank wins best bank award

Posted by BankInfo on Wed, Sep 18 2013 12:26 pm

BRAC Bank Ltd has won “Best Bank in Bangladesh Award” in the FinanceAsia’s Country Awards for Achievement 2013.

The bank’s managing director and CEO Syed Mahbubur Rahman received the award on behalf of the bank at Country Awards Gala Dinner at Hotel Fort Canning in Singapore recently, said a press release.

BRAC Bank pioneered lending to small and medium-sized enterprises in Bangladesh, which represent the bulk of economic activity but go ignored by the bigger lenders. The bank has contributed to a more inclusive growth model for Bangladesh,” FinanceAsia cited in award note.

The bank’s CEO said: “This is an honour for all of us, all 8,000 people at BRAC Bank as we celebrate 12th anniversary this year. We consider this international recognition as impetus to reach new height.”

“We have set an example locally and globally in financial inclusion through SME Financing. While we continue to focus on SME Banking and maintain our leadership position, we will strive for excellence in other areas too,” he added. This accolade comes as the second international honour for BRAC Bank in 2013 after “Best Managed Bank Award” from The Asian Banker earlier this year.

BB resets limit on banks’ share credit

Posted by BankInfo on Wed, Sep 18 2013 11:24 am

Banks will be able to disburse no more than Tk 3 crore in share credit to any stock dealer as the central bank set the limit in line with a revised law.

The loans will only be allowed for A- and B-category shares, Bangladesh Bank said in a notice yesterday.
The credit amount may cover up to 70 percent of the last six months’

weighted average prices of A-category shares and 60 percent of B-category shares, but that must not cross Tk 3 crore in any case.
The previous limit was Tk 1 crore.

The Banking Companies (Amendment) Act 2013, gazetted on July 22, empowers the central bank to set the credit limit time to time.

However, the banks’ total exposure to the capital market would not cross 25 percent of their total regulatory capital.

The central bank in yesterday’s directive also said the banks which have over-exposure to capital market will have to reduce the exposure by July 21, 2016.

The banks will also have to regularly submit a central bank prescribed report on their investment exposure to the stockmarket within first 10 days of a month, the BB said.
