London Institute of Banking & Finance (LIBF) awarding body
What we're all about
The London Institute of Banking & Finance (LIBF) is one of the main awarding bodies for professional qualifications in the finance sector – including for banking, mortgage advice, financial advice and trade finance. You can study directly with LIBF or, for some qualifications – like CeMAP® – you can choose to buy additional support for your studies through one of LIBF’s accredited learning support providers or trusted partners. Please visit our website to find out more. You are recommended to do your research before signing up for extra support with any third-party provider to make sure their provision meets your needs.
LIBF is also a university college, providing degrees in banking and finance for those who want to work in the sector, and the awarding body for GCSE and A Level equivalent qualifications in personal finance, helping thousands of young people become more financially savvy every year.
We exist for a very simple reason – to advance banking and finance by providing outstanding education and thinking, tailored to the needs of business, individuals, and society.
Our focus is on lifelong learning; equipping individuals with the knowledge, skills and qualifications to achieve what they want throughout their career and life.
We provide a balance of experience, insight and thought leadership into today’s financial world, delivered by industry leaders, thinkers and members of our community.
And because we’ve been at the heart of the sector since 1879, we create connections and build partnerships between people and business that make banking and finance more accessible and understood, and enhance social inclusion through better financial capability.
We are The London Institute of Banking & Finance, lifelong partners for financial education.
