Policy & Research

The Chartered Banker Institute conducts and supports research by academics, regulators and practitioners into areas of particular interest to the Institute and its members, including:

  • Professional Standards
  • Ethics and Integrity
  • Culture, Conduct and Behaviour
  • Banking Standards
  • Banking Regulation
  • Education and Training of Bankers

Our work to enhance and sustain ethical and professional standards in banking both informs and is informed by the evidence-based research we conduct ourselves and with our research partners. Most of our research findings are made freely available and disseminated widely to stimulate public debate on the issues raised. 

We believe that a strong banking profession, committed to high ethical and professional standards, can be a force for social good, and our aim is to enhance and sustain the banking profession in the UK, European Union and other regulatory consultations seeking to ensure that our members' voices are heard.
