What are the IBF Standards?

IBF works closely with the industry to develop the IBF Standards.







The IBF Standards provide practice-oriented development roadmaps for financial sector practitioners. They outline the competencies required in the different industry segments, as well as possible career pathways.

The IBF Standards currently cover 12 industry segments across the financial sector and comprise both accreditation and certification components.

Financial institutions and finance professionals are encouraged to use the IBF Standards as a guide for training and development. The IBF Standards are available here.
