Hello evreyone, is someone able to get a graph as in the picture that I attached? Using the dataset down. The scatter plot I got wasn't clear and I am not able to set the name of the point in the graph

A plot like that can be represented by the plot(x,y,'rd') function. rd specifies color red and diamond shape. To add a name to a point on the plot, you may use the text(x,y,word) function.
However, you need two variables. For the list of banks, there seems to be only 1 parameter. If you wish to plot it like in the figure, you need a second parameter so that for each value on the horizontal axis, there is a corresponding value on the vertical axis.

You would have to first clean the data so that there are two columns (ie a name value pair data).
T = readtable('clean_data.csv'); %load csv in tabel format
scatter(T{:,2},T{:,2}) %scatter plot with same x, y values = second column
text(T{:,2},T{:,2},T{:,1}) %text description being the first column
Refer this for adding text descriptions to data points.
For scatter plot, refer this documentation.
