The European Banking Federation (EBF) embodies the united voice of banks established in Europe. Created in 1960 to represent, defend and promote the interests of the European banking sector, the Federation has always remained committed to its overall aim: creating an integrated single market for financial services throughout the European Union.
The EBF members (national banking associations from 32 countries) benefit from this forum where best practices are exchanged, legislative proposals are debated and common positions adopted. The EBF is therefore a partner of choice for the European institutions in laying out their legislative initiatives. The EBF also actively promotes the positions of the European financial services in international fora.
