1. Introduction

1.1 Purpose of this Document

The purpose of this document is to assess the prospects of opening up a new branch of Marfin Popular Bank in the Mall of Cyprus in Nicosia.

It will act as a base document, upon which the Bank's Committee for Premises Management can evaluate the costs, benefits and viability of the Project's implementation.

2. Project definition

2.1 Description of the Project

The idea for this study derives from the upcoming opening of a new shopping centre of unprecedented scale in a prime location in Nicosia, called "the Mall of Cyprus". The Mall which is constructed by the most important conglomerate that is active in Cyprus - the Shakolas Group - is expected to highly affect the shopping habits of the city's inhabitants and of people from other towns. The building itself is by far going to be the largest shopping premise on the island and, in addition to the various shops, it will include a large Carrefour supermarket, a movie multiplex and several restaurants.

Due to the Bank's need and internal policy for having presence at all major geographical areas and important business centers, the Mall can be considered as a vital location for consumer banking. Marfin was first to recognize the importance of having branches in such locations with continuous flow of people, as proven by its small branches in the smaller "Orfanides" shopping centers in Limassol and Nicosia. The experience gained through time and the financial results of the specific branches can be utilized as a basis on valuating the project's potential.

Furthermore the overall corporate strategy of Marfin Popular Bank, as recently set by its new leadership, puts great emphasis on retail banking and on gaining a larger market share in the local market. A branch in the Mall seemingly falls well under this strategy, as the Mall is a place where people of all ages and interests pass by: youngsters going to the movies, families going grocery shopping or casual shoppers. ATM machines will certainly have a high usage in such a prime shopping location, but most of all; the Bank will have the ability to implement more direct marketing campaigns aimed at the end consumer. Banners, commercials and promotions will be exposed to all sorts of people that do not necessarily represent customers of the Bank, as would be the case in a sole Laiki Branch at any other part of the city.
