With members and students in more than 50 countries, the global community of Chartered Bankers continues to grow and expand. In Ireland the designation is jointly awarded by The Institute of Banking and the Chartered Banker Institute (Scotland).

Chartered Bankers are recognised as highly qualified professional bankers, well equipped for a management career or leadership role in banking. 

On completion of the Professional Diploma in Banking or the Graduate Diploma in Financial Services graduates will be invited to become a Chartered Banker (subject to relevant work experience in banking and/or financial services). Designates are entitled to use the designation ‘Chartered Banker’.
