To facilitate the lifelong learning and career progression of financial practitioners, IBF has identified skillsets specific to the financial industry.
Industry practitioners can use these skillsets as professional development roadmaps, to identify the skills needed for their job roles or functions.
Functional skills are competencies based on specific job roles or functions in the financial industry. IBF has identified a suite of functional skills, also known as the IBF Standards.
The IBF Standards are a set of competency standards developed by the industry for financial sector practitioners and currently cover 12 industry segments in the financial sector. They are benchmarked against international standards and represent the key skill sets required for various financial sector jobs.
