Setting the Prices:

PRICE

Allied Bank sets the prices for its products in the following manner:

22

1.

Selecting the Pricing Objective:

The pricing objective should be set according to what customers can easily pay. As Allied Bank is now focusing towards consumer markets, it chose penetrating pricing as its pricing strategy. It sets a low price for its products and services and a high interest rate as compare to its customers to get the maximum market share.

  • 2. Determining Demand:

The nature of demand for banking services is elastic. There are a huge number of commercial banks operating in Pakistan and this demand for commercial banking is increasing as the number of customers is growing day by day. So for meeting the demands of its customers and to have a large market share, Allied Bank keeps the prices low for its customers.

  • 3. Estimating Costs:

Allied Bank adopts Target Costing for their offers and terms to its target customers. They analyzed the environment for commercial banking to establish its desired functions and the price at which the products will sell given its appeal and competitor’s prices. The main objective of Allied bank for estimating costs is to bring the final cost projections for its products and services into the target cost range.

  • 4. Analyzing Competitors’ Costs, Prices and Offers:

Before setting prices for any of its product or service, Allied Bank analyze the costs, prices and offers of the 4 Giants i.e. its competitors. Allied Bank customers’ enjoy the highest interest rates on their transactions as compared to any other bank. Also Allied Bank is the only bank in Pakistan which does not charge a person some extra money if he\she withdraws money from another bank’s ATM. while all its competitors charge some amount upon withdrawal from other ATMs rather than their own ATMs.

  • 5. Selecting a Pricing method:

Allied bank adopts Target Return Pricing method for determining the price that would yield its target rate of return on investment (ROI). Allied Bank enjoys long term relations with its customers by providing them banking facilities at the highest interest rate than any other commercial bank in Pakistan.

23

Suppose the bank has invested 2million rupees in providing the ATM facility and wants to set a price to earn a70 percent ROI, which is 14,00,000 rupees. The target-return price is given by the following formula:

Target-return price = unit cost + desired return × invested capital

Unit Sales

= 250 + 0.70 x 20000000

70000000

= 250 + 0.2 = 250.2

The bank will realize this 70 percent ROI provided its costs and estimated sales turn out to be accurate. But what if sales do not reach 70000000 customers? The bank can prepare a break – even chart to learn what would happen at other sales levels.

Fixed costs are 50000000 rupees regardless of sales volume. Total costs equal the sum of fixed costs and variable costs.

The total revenue and total cost curves cross at 62000000 customers. This is the break- even volume. It can be verified by the following formula:

Break-even volume = fixed cost

Break-even Chart

(price – variable cost)

= 50000000

(250.2 – 242.13)

= 6200000

24

6. Selecting the Final Price: Selecting the final price for any of any of its product

6. Selecting the Final Price:

Selecting the final price for any of any of its product or service requires Allied Bank to keep in view the following things: policies set by State Bank of Pakistan, KIBER rates etc. It gives 15% interest for every transaction amounting 1 million rupees.

PLACE

Allied Bank has 735 online branches all over Pakistan. Its headquarter is located in Karachi. The bank is providing its services in the remote areas as well.

Selecting a location for a new branch requires the following things:

Analysis of competitors in that location.

Number of potential customers.

There should be enough space for expansion if it’s required in future.

25
