A. Manimekhalai, MD & CEO of Union Bank of India (UBI), wants Union Bank of India to surpass other Public Sector Banks and take the third-largest Public Sector Bank position in a time of few years. Union Bank of India may even take into consideration buying a bank along the route. Manimekhalai, who became UBI’s first female leader on June 7th, emphasised that the bank has set “RACE” as its aim for the year.
- RACE stands for:
- Grow RAM (retail, agriculture, and MSME) loans,
- Improve Asset quality,
- Boost CASA (current account, savings account deposits), and
- Increase Earnings.
- The MD of Union Bank of India wants the bank to rank among the top three PSB lenders, be the industry leader in a few niche markets, and be a contender in government-sponsored programmes.
- Regarding the fundamentals of being one of the top three PSBs, the bank’s profitability and net interest margin should rise, the non-performing asset ratios should drop, and the capital to risk-weighted asset ratio must rise.
- These are the fundamental criteria that Union Bank of India is considering and targeting.
