Customer Relationship Management and Profitability of Money Deposit Banks In Nigeria (2006 – 2015) (Published)
The study investigated the customer relationship management and profitability of money deposit banks in Nigeria from 2006 to 2015. Ten banks out of twenty one functioning banks were selected for the study. The specific objective was to ascertain the extent to which bank CRP affect the TR and PAT. Secondary data employed were from the annual reports from banks published in the NSE website. Multiple regression analysis and student t-test were the statistical tools employed, with the use of SPSS for both data analysis and to test the hypotheses formulated for the study at 5% level of significance. The result indicated that CRP has a significant relationship with the total revenue of banks with little or no impact. Since the impact on TR is not much, its relationship with PAT is not significant while the impact is negative. The study therefore concludes that if banks can give more attention to customer relationship management, the revenue base (income from customers) will have a boost and operating overhead will not absorb all the income. As a result, there will be enough retained profit to pool back (reinvest) into the business.
