It’s exciting to work with the team at FINSIA that has a real focus on developing new ways of building capability and professionalism within the banking sector. Having a passion to think differently and to focus on what developing people will mean in terms of better customer experience will help restore trust and pride in the sector. That’s why I see such value in the collaboration between FINSIA and the Chartered Banker Institute to develop a suite of qualifications that fit the aspirations of people strategies and also work to build up credits towards Chartered Banker status.
FINSIA has a range of professional qualifications covering all areas of financial services, each one designed to:
- Be flexible

In terms of mindset, I think the Chartered Banker is excellent in that it hones your focus on your accountabilities as a banker particularly with respect to customer outcomes, understanding your compliance and regulatory obligations and having ethical frameworks to apply sound judgement.
As Chartered Bankers, I think we are well placed to role model professional standards in the industry amongst those we lead and work with.
FINSIA, its members and staff, have a fabulous history of being leading advocates, thought leaders and drivers of professional standards.
At a time when the financial services industry is facing unprecedented change, with heightened community expectations, a challenging competitive environment and regulatory landscape, building professionalism across our industry and supporting our members to be the best they can is critical.
