International Banking Institute (IBI)

Since the global financial crisis (GFC) of 2007 the focus of the International Banking Institute (IBI)* has been to respond to the changing demands of the banking sector. Prominent areas of research for our members include risk, systemic risk, governance, capital adequacy and bank failure. We also look to emerging trends and developments within the sector with interdisciplinary research and programmes within financial technologies (fintech) with the Schools of Computing and Mathematics.

IBI members comprise a mixture of experience and youth and this is helping to propel the research we do. We marry reports for regulators and industry with high quality academic papers to inform the academic community, industry and the public.

*IBI was formerly the International Institute for Banking and Financial Services (IIBFS) and the Centre for Financial Services (CFS). IBI has a long history dating back to the formation of CFS in 1995 that transformed into IIBFS in 1997 when it obtained substantial sponsorship from the financial industry to develop a research unit focusing on issues confronting the sector. In the late 90s, the banking industry was facing rapid technological change from the start of the online revolution, players in the sector were reconfiguring via mergers and regulation was struggling to keep pace with the waves of change washing across the sector. Therefore for the first 12 years of its life the primary foci of IBI were strategy, technology and regulation.
