What We Do

IFABS 2014 Conference

Welcome to Our WEBSITE!

The International Finance and Banking Society (IFABS) is one of the world’s leading organisations for the promotion of research and understanding of banking and finance.

Established in the UK, its purpose is to raise awareness of the importance of banking and finance for economic development and the wellbeing of members of a society. It achieves this by providing a forum for discussion and critical analysis of the major financial and banking challenges that face the contemporary world.

IFABS provides a set of networking opportunities for academics, research students, policy makers and practitioners to share new knowledge which is underpinned by high quality research. Additionally, IFABS sponsors an annual international conference along with seminars, workshops and training courses throughout the year on current banking and finance issues. Over a relatively short period of time IFABS has gained an enviable reputation and now has a membership of over 2000, which continues to grow.
