The Chartered Banker Institute is a global professional education body for bankers, based in the UK. With more than 30,000, in over 100 countries worldwide, we play a leading role in developing and embedding socially purposeful, responsible, and professional banking.
We are proud to be the oldest banking institute in the world, and 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, we are proud of heritage and our work to create a sustainable banking profession. The Institute was one of the first UK organisations to endorse the UN Principles for Responsible Banking, and the first in the world to launch a Certificate in Green and Sustainable Finance. Through initiatives like these, the Institute aims to build a responsible, professional, and sustainable banking profession, which is accessible to all.
