About the Banking Standards Board

Chaired by Dame Colette Bowe, the Banking Standards Board is funded by the industry to hold the industry itself to account by providing independent challenge and support to member banks and building societies as they seek individually and collectively to raise standards of behaviour and competence. The BSB is neither a regulator nor a trade body. It has no statutory powers and does not engage in lobbying on behalf of the industry. The BSB works closely with bank and building society boards, staff, customers, investors and a wide range of stakeholders to raise industry standards, increase the trustworthiness of all banks and building societies operating in the UK and strengthen the UK’s position as a global financial centre.
