In light of recent news around Travel Strikes on the 13th and 14th of December affecting most operators and the underground, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our Young Banker of the Year Grand Final which was due to take place on Tuesday 13th December. 

The Final will now take place on Tuesday 21st March 2023.

If you were booked to attend the Final in December you will have received an email regarding your booking. Your registration will still remain valid but please email [email protected] if you are unable to make the new date.
