25 Emphasis on Brand Experience Impact Market Penetration Share of wallet Validation Quality Service Value Promise Brand Image Emotional connection with the brand PerceptualExperiential Usage

26 Our Strategy We defined a Brand Personality which we wanted others to perceive about us – “The Caring Bank” This overall Brand Personality is based on “CARE”. Thus the whole communication, products, services and brand experience revolves around this core perception. However the communication strategy, medium and manner may change from segment to segment Initiatives were taken so that people perceive what we want them to perceive, i.e. “The Caring Bank”. This is almost like touching their hearts and souls We achieved such a feat by moulding our identity into their identity, by showing them that we are their own bank, we have to think like them and appreciate what they do 26

27 (continued) We relate care to all branding practices with main areas of concentration being: –Branch Ambiance and Comfort –Products & Services –Communication –HR Development & Training –Community Development & Heritage –CSR & Sports These areas will be further emphasized in relation to the main Brand. However, Marketing Communications will select the right activity according to the target segment. Marketing Communications as a carrier to achieve penetration, all aspects will be explored to finalize a complete and all encompassing symphony of communication targets 27

28 Way Forward A brand strategy has been formed to migrate advertising from “promotion centric” to “brand centric” Capitalize on Bank Alfalah’s customer perception of a modern and a progressive bank Expedite focus on technology based convenience – ATMs, Phone Banking, Branchless Banking, Internet Banking and E- Statements etc. Aggressively pursue database marketing to cross sell more products to existing customers (across consumer & branch banking) Focus on telephone wait time and clarity and transparency of credit card statements whilst improving ATM up time 28
