In early 1988, a group of enthusiastic senior bankers saw the need to form an association to promote professionalism in the industry, for a forum to meet and discuss topics relating to the banking industry and also to help upcoming bankers to broaden their knowledge and skills. As a result, the Association of Professional Bankers – Sri Lanka (APB) was established in July 1988.  Bankers welcomed the formation of the Association, fulfilling a long-felt need in the industry. Over the years the APB has made a steady progress and been the most representative organisation of banking professionals in Sri Lanka with a membership of over 1,200.

The mission of APB is to sustain the highest standards of professionalism and integrity among bankers, and to influence the achievement of the highest ethical standards and governance in the banking industry.

The APB functions as a forum that brings together banking professionals/leading personalities in business administration and local/global banking, and stimulate intellectual discussions in the contemporary banking scenario. In addition, it provides many opportunities for the bankers to network through regular evening presentations, quiz programs, APB’s annual convention, talent shows, members’ get-together, sports events, religious events, etc.   

In addition, several banking publications such as the APB’s bi-annual journal ‘The Professional Banker’, the quarterly newsletter/e-journal ‘The Professional Banker’, booklets/publications on special banking topics issued by the APB enhance the professional knowledge of its members, as well as the entire banking and finance industry professionals.
