BCLP is partnering with the Association of Foreign Banks (AFB) on their 2021 CEO Programme, an exclusive and carefully curated programme of events open only to the CEOs and branch managers of the AFB’s member banks.

The AFB CEO Programme provides strategic insight and thought leadership on evolving market-facing issues, facilitates delegates’ direct access to regulators and other banking stakeholders, and provides a valuable networking forum among CEOs. BCLP Partners Polly James, Daniel Csefalvay, Adam Jamieson and Tariq Rasheed are delighted to be part of the AFB 2021 CEO Programme with such distinguished speakers including to date Andrew Bailey (governor of the Bank of England), Nikhil Rathi (CEO of the Financial Conduct Authority), Sam Woods (CEO of the Prudential Regulation Authority), Katharine Braddick (director general for financial services at the Treasury) and John Glen MP (economic secretary to the Treasury).

Partner and Co-leader of BCLP’s Financial Services Disputes & Investigations Practice Group Polly James said: “I am incredibly proud of our relationship with the AFB; my colleagues and I are delighted to be able to support the AFB’s important work. As long-term strategic partners of the AFB, we are particularly excited about our sponsorship of the high-calibre CEO Programme, which has so much to offer to those leading banks through these unprecedented circumstances.”  

AFB CEO, Dr Catherine Raines said: The CEO Programme is an important initiative for the AFB – a yearly programme of events that provides strategic thought leadership for the senior representatives from our member banks and delivers exclusive access and networking opportunities. I am delighted to have BCLP as our CEO Programme partner, Polly and her colleagues always add exceptional value and support – we very much value our partnership and look forward to working together.”
