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 Charter can be found here.
The British Bankers’ Association has supported the development of this Charter alongside a steering group of 24 other financial services organisations, as well as the Building Societies Association and the Association of British Insurers.
Eric Leenders, Executive Director of Retail Banking of the British Bankers’ Association said:
“As the population ages all aspects of society are having to adapt to the challenges of dementia. The Dementia Friendly Financial Services Charter demonstrates how banks are developing ways to ensure that people with the condition can continue to run their own finances. This work represents a key milestone in the Prime Minister’s dementia agenda, and the BBA look forward to continuing their work with the Alzheimer’s Society on this important issue”.
