UK Finance is the new financial services trade association launched on 1st July 2017. It was formed by the integration of the British Bankers’ Association, Council of Mortgage Lenders, Payments UK, The UK Cards Association, Asset Based Finance Association and Financial Fraud UK.

UK Finance aspires to be a world-class trade association, and currently represents the UK-based activities of around 300 members across retail and commercial banking, mortgage, cards/payments, investment/wholesale banking, private banking, payments and asset based finance. It works at the highest level with industry, government, regulators and the media. In 2014, the financial services sector contributed over £100bn in GVA in the UK, more than 5% of the total. And this if anything understates the importance of the sector to the UK economy, as it continues to have a more than £30bn trade surplus in financial services and pay over £70bn in tax per annum.

Responsibilities of UK Finance include representation of members and advocacy on behalf of the sector, being the first point of contact for key stakeholders including government, regulators, media and user groups on matters affecting members. UK Finance’s goal is to ensure that the UK retains its role as a global leader in financial services. UK Finance has c.200 staff and has recently moved to new premises in Angel Court, Bank, London.
