It aims to help rebuild public confidence in banks and bankers by developing and embedding high ethical, professional and technical standards.[1] In 2011, the Institute led the establishment of the Chartered Banker Professional Standards Board (CB:PSB), [2] which develops and supports UK the implementation of industry-wide professional standards which set out the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours expected of all UK bankers.
