Mamunur Rashid, M. Kabir Hassan

Abstract


Bangladesh is a moderate Islamic country. There are six full pledged Islamic banks providing services to wide range of customers. This study is designed to examine the impact of demographic disparities on the bank selection criteria applied by diversified customers of domestic Islamic banks in Bangladesh. We have run regression analysis after controlling for four demographic groupings such as Gender, Marital Status, Age and Educational Qualification. The beta scores were taken for identifying the influential factors chosen by the customers of Islamic Banks. Mostly, non-Islamic factors such as Corporal efficiency, Core-Banking services, Confidence, etc. were given higher weights by majority of the respondents. The report recommends introducing complete E-Banking solution, to increase advanced marketing efforts and to hire experienced human resources for better Islamic Banking activities in Bangladesh.
