Global Trust Bank – Analyst meet update

Nov 8, 2000

Global Trust Bank (GTB)’s operating profit margins improved considerably for the second quarter ended September 2000. The bank’s profit growth was led by low cost of deposits yielding higher interest spread. The profit growth of GTB was however marred by higher other expenses. Investment by the bank in setting up infrastructure (ATMs and branches) and e-initiatives led to increase in other expenses. At present the bank has network of 76 branches and 52 ATMs. It has invested around Rs 600 m in technology improvement and plans to invest Rs 300 m more during the current year. The bank will expand its distribution network through opening up 21 branches and 25 ATMs. The bank’s go slow strategy on opening ATMs has paid it rich dividend through lower cost of installment (ATM cost has fallen by more than 65% from Rs 2.5 m initially).
