The International Banking Federation was formed in March 2004 to represent the combined views of a group of national banking associations. Please see 'IBFed Members' for the list of member banking associations.
The countries represented by the Federation collectively represent more than 18,000 banks with 275,000 branches, including around 700 of the world’s top 1000 banks which alone manage worldwide assets of over $31 trillion.
The Federation represents every major financial centre and its members’ activities take place in every time zone. This worldwide reach enables the Federation to function as the key international forum for considering legislative, regulatory and other issues of interest to the global banking industry.
