French Banking Federation’s mission

The French Banking Federation (FBF) is the professional body that represents all banks operating in France.


The FBF's mission is to promote the banking and financial industry at the French, European and international levels. It defines the profession's positions and proposals with respect to public authorities and economic/financial authorities.

364 member banks

120 permanent employees work at FBF and AFB, in conjunction with more than 350 bankers who take part in commissions and committees. These bodies meet regularly to formulate positions and to launch initiatives.

Decision-making relies on preparatory work by experts from the FBF and technical committees or 80 ad hoc working groups. 1,300 working meetings are held every year.

Discussions with members are also central to the work carried out by the FBF.

Influence in France and across Europe

Located in Paris, the FBF also maintains offices in Brussels and Frankfurt.

The FBF is also present throughout France via a network of 105 regional and departmental committees. This network calls upon the services of 2,500 bankers who regularly meet with local business and government representatives and convey the positions of the industry.
