The Chartered Banker Institute is the oldest banking institute in the world, and the only remaining banking institute in the UK. It is the only organisation to award the ‘Chartered Banker’ designation to qualified members.
The Institute's vision for the financial services industry is one of professionalism. CBI believes that integrity, responsibility and ethical behaviour, coupled with a commitment to maintain professional competence through Continuing Professional Development, are the hallmarks of a Chartered Banker.
The Institute develops and promotes professional standards for bankers and provides world class professional qualifications for the financial services industry in the UK and overseas.
The Institute offers a range of qualifications from the Professional Banker Certificate to Chartered Banker, its flagship professional level programme. It also provides regulatory qualification programmes in Mortgage Advice and Investment Advice that are recognised as appropriate by the Financial Services Skills Council.
Qualifications are designed to be flexible with a range of entry and exit points and are available on a distance-learning basis with support offered through the CBI Academy.
