We exist for a very simple reason – to advance banking and finance by providing outstanding education and thinking, tailored to the needs of business, individuals, and society. Our focus is on lifelong learning; equipping individuals with the knowledge, skills and qualifications to achieve what they want throughout their career and life. We provide a balance of experience, insight and thought leadership into today’s financial world, delivered by industry leaders, thinkers and members of our community. And because we’ve been at the heart of the sector since 1879, we create connections and build partnerships between people and business that make banking and finance more accessible and understood, and enhance social inclusion through better financial capability. We are The London Institute of Banking & Finance, lifelong partners for financial education.

The Global Banking Education Standards Board (GBEStB) is a voluntary, industry-led initiative inaugurated during the World Conference of Banking Institutes in 2017, supported by 25 of the world’s leading banking institutes and representing over two million banking professionals worldwide. The GBEStB brings together the resources of these banking institutes to create and provide internationally agreed ethical and professional standards for high-quality and consistent education of bankers. The Board believes that developing and supporting the implementation of global standards for the education and professional development of bankers will enhance and sustain ethics and professionalism in banking worldwide. Our work will support a banking profession, one upon which customers, clients and communities can consistently rely. It will also facilitate the global mobility of banking professionals and complement the work of regulators and supervisors creating a robust, ethical culture in the industry that contributes to the stability of the financial system. The GBEStB’s first standard, Ethics Education and Training for Professional Bankers was published in April 2018.
