Young Banker of the Year Virtual Final 2020

Event Details

Due to the developments with the Coronavirus and following the Government’s advice, we have decided to showcase this year's talent virtually, and we are delighted to invite our colleagues, members and external communities to join us in discovering our Young Banker of the Year 2020!

This year our Young Banker applicants were asked the following question: 

“What idea would you implement in your organisation  to improve outcomes for customers, colleagues,  and communities? Your idea should reflect your vision for the future of the industry and be consistent with the UN Principles for Responsible Banking.”

From an array of highly impressive applications, and 2 exceptional virtual semi-finals, the judges have chosen 4 candidates to proceed to the Final. The Final will see these 4 candidates present their ideas virtually, to our live audience and answer questions from both our panel of judges and the audience. 

The Judging panel will be chaired by Bill McCall, President, Chartered Banker Institute, and will comprise:

  • Dame Susan Rice, Chairman of the Banking Standards Board, 
  • Simone Dettling, Banking Team Lead, UN Environment Finance Initiative, CCA Global, 
  • Sir Roger Gifford, Chair, Green Finance Institute, and 
  • Karina Robinson, Master of the Worshipful Company of International Bankers. 

The judges will then choose who to annouce 'Young Banker of the Year 2020'.

We welcome you to join us for what will be a highly inspiring event.
