European Banking Federation
Set up in 1960, the European Banking Federation (EBF) is the voice of the European banking sector. It represents the interests of over 5000 European banks, large and small, from 29 national Banking Associations, with assets of more than EUR 20 000 billion and over 2.3 million employees. This is a partnership of the banking associations of each of the member states. It promotes the united voice of the banks of the European Union (EU) and of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries.
It represents the interests of some 3000 banks, with total assets of more than 10 000 billion euros. It was set up in 1960 to represent the interests of banks at Community level.
Since its inception, the Federation has maintained an ongoing dialogue with the European Commission and with other European institutions, with the aim of ensuring that the experience and the views of banks are taken into consideration by all appropriate bodies.
