To achieve Trusted Partner status, an organisation needs to be able to demonstrate training programme(s) that support students studying towards The London Institute of Banking & Finance qualifications and meets its high quality standards, underpinned by robust policies and procedures; committing to an on-going programme of development to ensure these standards are maintained.

Having first forged links more than 50 years ago as the Institute of Bankers and the Malta Institute of Bank Officials respectively, The London Institute of Banking & Finance will continue to provide its industry-leading Diploma for Financial Advisers (DipFA®) to ifs Malta’s members and work to promote new programmes, such as the Professional Diploma in Banking & Finance, Chartered Associateship and Masters in Banking & Finance, to further enhance the skills and professionalism of banking and finance professionals on the island.

Kenneth B. Micallef, President at ifs Malta, said:

“Since its inception, ifs Malta has always had a close and special relationship with The London Institute of Banking & Finance and over the years many Maltese professional bankers have studied the Institute’s qualifications. This has undoubtedly contributed to the development and success of Malta’s financial services sector. It is, therefore, with great satisfaction that we are renewing this long-standing partnership and continue offering the Institute’s renowned qualifications to meet the ever-changing needs of our dynamic financial services sector.”

Martin Day, Managing Director Corporate and Professional Qualifications, at The London Institute of Banking & Finance, said:

We are looking forward to working closer with our colleagues at ifs Malta and building upon on our strong relationship to provide relevant qualifications to the banking and finance community so that they can continue in their mission to meet the needs of both the local and international financial services industries.
