Banking on Change front coverThe London Institute of Banking & Finance has officially launched its new book Banking on Change: The development and future of financial services, commissioned to mark its 140th anniversary.

Banking on Change provides insights by experts and influencers from across the financial services industry on some of the central questions facing the finance sector today, including:

  • What will happen in payments, in sustainable finance and in fintech
  • the reforms in regulation that would boost UK bank competition
  • how financial services can help protect our digital identities
  • the role of trade finance in underpinning global trade and avoiding the "financial abandonment" of emerging markets
  • attracting and training diverse talent.

Alex Fraser, Chief Executive of The London Institute of Banking & Finance said:
Banking on Change  has been published at a time of rapid, and potentially dramatic, change and no sector is more affected than financial services. We commissioned experts from across the industry to give their views on its development and on the changes ahead.

"The book provides insights into the evolving mission of financial services, banking technology and its impacts, the changing business models of financial firms, sustainable finance challenges and, last but not least, people and skills. It’s a book that we hope will be of lasting value to everyone with an interest in financial services, for many years to come.”

  • Banking on Change is published by Wiley priced at £35
  • all royalties go to The Institute’s 140th fundraising appeal to provide scholarships to disadvantaged students and to extend financial capability projects in the wider community.
