Commenting on his election, Steve Pateman said:

“I’m deeply honoured to be appointed as the President of the Institute. There are many areas where our voice should be heard - we live in a global community and it is right that we look outwards and face into the challenges that arise from Covid-19, as well as climate change.

To that end, the key strategic areas I would like my term to focus on are how we can help the banking sector play its part in supporting the economic and social recovery and changes that will flow from Covid-19, and how we can help the banking sector achieve the global commitments on reducing the adverse impact of climate change.

I would also like to pay tribute on behalf of all Fellows and Members of the Institute, to my immediate predecessor Bill McCall.  We should be very proud that the Institute has managed to successfully transition itself towards a digital Institute throughout this global pandemic. This will be a legacy of Bill's Presidency.”
