FINSIA is the professional body in Australia and New Zealand for the financial services industry.

FINSIA, the Financial Services Institute of Australasia, origins go back to 1886, when the AIBF was established by a group of bankers to drive improvements in professional practice and high standards of conduct.

Working with key stakeholders including the industry and regulators, FINSIA's purpose continues to be to raise professional standards of competency and conduct in financial services. This supports raising trust and pride for FINSIA members to deliver better community outcomes. It is achieved through education, ongoing professional development and engagement within a professional community. Professional practitioners who are members of FINSIA are required to abide by a Code of Conduct, which is supported by disciplinary processes.

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 signalling 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.
