Our Supporters

We are extremely grateful to the following organisations for their support of the Fellowship programme:


Chartered Banker Institute

The Chartered Banker Institute is the oldest and largest professional banking institute in the world, with over 30,000 members. The Institute was founded in 1875, operates in all UK nations, and has a significant and growing international presence.

Established by Royal Charter, the Institute has driven an agenda of ethical professionalism throughout its existence, promoting professional standards for bankers, providing professional qualifications for retail, commercial and private bankers in the UK and overseas, and offering professional membership to qualified individuals. The Institute has also recently become one of a relatively small and select group of professional bodies to be granted End Point Assessment (EPA) status for apprenticeships in England.

The Chartered Banker Institute is supporting the overall costs of the Fellowship and the venue for our closing Demo Day.
