About us

FINSIA recognises the current challenges facing the financial services sector, the appetite for change and the need for a professional industry body to help restore pride and trust in the financial services community by raising standards of professionalism.  

FINSIA is the right vehicle to drive change. 

This is a great opportunity to be a part of this change and the change starts with you.

Our history

FINSIA’s origins go back to the first meeting of the Australian Institute of Banking and Finance (AIBF) on 21 July 1886 when more than 250 bankers met to promote "the dissemination of professional knowledge and sound banking practice".

The establishment of the Securities Institute of Australia in 1966 was similarly driven by the need to build professionalism within the stockbroking industry.

These two leading institutes merged in 2005 signaling a new era for financial services: one industry represented by a single professional association — FINSIA.

Our 125th anniversary edition of InFinance provides further detail about our history.
