Introduction of Askari Commercial Bank Limited- ACBL 1.1 Definition and purpose of Banks Banking is the business of providing financial services to consumers and businesses. The basic services a bank provides are checking accounts, which can be used like money to make payments and purchase goods and services; savings accounts and time deposits that can be used to save money for future use; loans that consumers and businesses can use to purchase goods and services; and basic cash management services such as check cashing and foreign currency exchange. A broader definition of a bank is "Any financial institution that receives, collects, transfers, pays, exchanges, lends, invests, or safeguards money for its customers." Banking services serve two primary purposes: First, by supplying customers with the basic mediums-of-exchange (cash, checking accounts, and credit cards), banks play a key role in the way goods and services are purchased. Without these familiar methods of payment, goods could only be exchanged by barter, which is extremely timeconsuming and inefficient. Second, by accepting money deposits from savers and then lending the money to borrowers, banks encourage the flow of money to productive use and investments. This in turn allows the economy to grow by letting people to purchase cars or houses, and businesses to expand and build the new factories that the economy needs in order to produce more goods and services. Enabling the flow of money from savers to investors is called financial intermediation and this is what banks are established for. 1.2 History of Askari Commercial Bank The banking sector has witnessed a dramatic change during the last ten years with the
