In October 2015 it announced the details of this strategy. Under “Strategy 2020” the bank has set four strategic goals, updated performance targets and also priorities for the corporate divisions. The four strategic goals include first – to become simpler and more efficient, second – to become less risky, third – to become better capitalized and fourth – to run the bank with more disciplined execution. Besides reorganization of the operating business has been done under this strategy effective from January 1, 2016.

Financial year 2015 was unsatisfactory for the bank and it has therefore realigned its strategic plan for the next five years. One of the key things to achieve under this strategy is improve the bank’s capital position organically. Even the results of the first quarter of fiscal year 2016 have shown decline of 22% in revenues in comparison to the last year which reflect the bank’s concern over the slowing global economy.
