The AFB has eight technical platforms across which it operates its business. These platforms are aligned with the Senior Managers and Certification Regime. Each platform has a corresponding Advisory Committee which is composed of up to 8 senior bankers representing a diverse cross-section of our membership base. Their purpose is to provide assurance that the AFB is meeting the technical and regulatory needs of the wider membership.
Each Advisory Committee is managed by a Chair and meets 3 times per year and they play a crucial role in supporting annual planning and helping to steer the topics for AFB Panels, seminars, training and publications. These topics form the foundations for the AFB’s programme of events and underpins the AFB’s commitment to serve foreign banks and deliver best-in-class content to our members, helping member banks drive their businesses forward.
The Advisory Committees support the AFB’s proactive policy input and reactive policy responses, as a key part of our interaction with key stakeholders in government and regulatory bodies.
