AFB works hand-in-glove with members and stakeholders to anticipate relevant industry trends and analyse and share technical and market data and intelligence. We work in partnership with key experts including some of the leading global law firms and consultants to deliver specialist knowledge and guidance at over 70 high value practice events every year. We offer accredited training, best practice seminars, peer to peer networking and operational support. We cover a wide range of issues such as critical third parties, diversity & inclusion and climate risk.
This practical expertise and training adds significant value that can be directly implemented at each member firm. AFB provides a unique opportunity to meet your peers from other foreign banks to share experiences and best practice.
AFB has an extensive Resource Library and publishes summary papers after each practice roundtable summarising the discussions and findings, which are held under the Chatham House Rule. The library also houses Briefing papers which focus on particular topics of interest to members.
We have two “standard” Conferences each year: the Financial Crime Compliance Conference and the Policy Conference. We may also arrange other, topic-based, conferences as and when the need/opportunity arises.
The AFB holds a number of Networking Events each year including the Mansion House Lunch and Black Tie Annual Banquet. We also hold a number of bespoke events to facilitate networking of specific member segments.
AFB Practice Roundtables are designed so members can have open discussions on key topics with experts in the field of banking, Government, Policymakers and Regulators. These sessions are held in-person for approximately 30 members, limited to one member per bank.
Seminars are open to large groups of members of 100 or more, who meet in a “theatre” style format on a topic-by-topic basis to listen to expert speakers giving a thorough overview of a specific theme with time for Q&A.
AFB provides training courses for its members on banking related topics, with a specific focus on what is important to foreign banks operating in the UK – Including the Leadership Programme, Financial Crime Compliance (AML) Diploma, and more.
The AFB has a comprehensive publication library including Policy Roundtable Summaries, Webinar Recordings, Briefing Papers, Surveys, Policy Consultation Responses, Submissions, Expert Panel Output Papers (now discontinued) and other publications of interest to the AFB membership.
