Summary

This volume examines the first hundred years of the Institute of Banking’s development within the banking business as a whole, with a particular emphasis upon changes in the staffing requirements of the banks and the importance of professional qualifications in the careers of their employees. The survey includes a description of early attempts to form a professional institute for bankers between the 1840s and the 1870s. By examining the objectives, growth of membership and the extension of the Institute’s activities, this volume throws light upon the changing work and qualifications of bank personnel and offers a case study in the development of a large and important professional group.
