Leading financial education provider, ifs University College, has today (15th September 2016) become The London Institute of Banking & Finance.

Following approval of the new name by the Privy Council in June, the organisation has now officially changed its name to coincide with the start of the 2016/17 academic year.

The London Institute of Banking & Finance is an internationally recognised organisation delivering financial education at every level, including qualifications in personal finance for young people, full-time undergraduate degrees, specialist certificates and diplomas and Masters degrees for senior professionals. Its roots stretch back to 1879 when it was established as the Institute of Bankers.

To coincide with the organisation’s new name and brand, a new website -  www.libf.ac.uk, has also been launched today.

Alex Fraser, Principal, The London Institute of Banking & Finance, said:

“The response to our new name from our students, members and industry employers has been extremely positive, with widespread agreement that it provides clarity on our purpose and speaks to our breadth of provision across academic and professional financial education.

“We aim to be a lifelong partner for the industry and for those who work within it, through the provision of outstanding education and thinking, tailored to the needs of business, individuals and society.”
