The BBA is now integrated into UK Finance. Please go to www.ukfinance.org.uk for new content and updates from UK Finance.
Material published by BBA prior to 1st July 2017 is still available on this website.
From 1 July 2017, the finance and banking industry operating in the UK will be represented by a new trade association, UK Finance. It will represent around 300 firms in the UK providing credit, banking, markets and payment-related services. The new organisation will take on most of the activities previously carried out by the Asset Based Finance Association, the British Bankers’ Association, the Council of Mortgage Lenders, Financial Fraud Action UK, Payments UK and the UK Cards Association.x
The European regulatory agenda is critical for the BBA’s members. Following the financial crisis a substantial reform programme has been implemented covering the spectrum of banking activities and market infrastructure. Given much of this originates from the EU, the BBA engages constructively with EU institutions to make the case for the Single Market and growth-focused regulation that increases financial stability, combats protectionism and helps ensure the competiveness of the banking sector that operates in the UK.
The UK’s place as the world’s leading international financial centre cannot be taken for granted. As competitors continue to grow and liberalise their markets the EU must take into consideration the changing nature of global competitiveness. With our members, we work closely with counterparts in Europe and in the business community to engage effectively with stakeholders to ensure awareness of these issues are high up on the agenda.
