Lifelong partners for financial education


At The London Institute of Banking & Finance we believe on being the lifelong partners in financial education for all our stakeholders.

In March 1879, a small group of bank workers came together, they were united by a commitment to provide leadership on banking practice that would be available to everyone working in the sector. In 1987 we gained our Royal Charter and became the Chartered Institute of Bankers, in 2010 we gained Taught Degree Awarding Powers (TDAP), and in 2013 we were granted University College title.

Leveraging on our heritage of more than 140 years, we established our first international regional office for GCC and MENA with the vision to share quality British education through bespoke programmes, qualifications, and degrees designed for the region to support the regional banking community competency development, while growing our international alumni. Our programmes range from technical banking to future banking topics, always delivered in a unique blended learning methodology to assure that knowledge gained during our programmes is ready to be applied to maximize the return on investment for our clients.
