The Chartered Banker Institute is a global professional education body for bankers, based in the UK. Established by Royal Charter, we are a not-for-profit educational charity with a mission to enhance and sustain socially purposeful, responsible, professional banking in the public interest. We do this by developing and supporting bankers’ education and professional development throughout their careers, in particular in the areas of:
• Core banking skills, including credit and lending, and risk management.
• Professional ethics, culture and conduct.
• Digital finance
• Green and sustainable finance, aligned with the UN Principles for Responsible Banking and UN Sustainable Development Goals.
• Bank management and leadership.

We are the largest UK professional body for bankers, with more than 30,000 members – individual banking professionals who make an ongoing commitment to developing their customer-focused ethical professionalism.

We are proud to be oldest banking institute in the world, and proud to be the only organisation in the world approved by the UK’s Privy Council to award the “Chartered Banker” designation to members meeting the highest standards of professionalism. Founded in 1875 as the Institute of Bankers in Scotland, our work today is as important as it was 140 years ago. Our global impact and influence continues to grow, with members and students in over 100 countries worldwide.

The overarching theme for this year’s conference will be “responsible banking and the implementation of international standards”. It will consider among other things, how well banks are embedding the UN Principles of Responsible Banking in their organisations, how responsible banking links to the Chartered Banker Institute’s Professional Code of Conduct, and what responsible banking means for the education, training and development of bankers.
