However, despite the intense growth in the practices by banks, reports indicate that there are doubts about the effectiveness of relationship management practices in enhancing banks' performance thereby calling for the need to establish the usefulness of relationship management practices embraced by banks.

Specifically, the study examined the influence of complaints management, communications management, customer loyalty programs and personalized customer services on loan portfolio performance of commercial banks. The study was anchored on three theories; the institutional theory, the relationship management theory and the financial intermediation the01y. Using a descriptive research design, the study targeted seven Tier 1 commercial banks in Kenya with bank employees drawn from customer care, sales and marketing, and loans and credit departments from the headquarters.
