Hear from previous winners, finalists and contestants about the wide range of benefits that you can experience if you apply for Young Banker of the Year 2021. 

"I am delighted the judges have bought into my vision and selected me as winner of this prestigious competition. The principles for responsible banking aim to help the banking industry make a positive contribution to society. This is what I’ve set out to achieve with my proposal of a financial solution for people living with serious injury and severe medical conditions. I am positive that this will help further the conversation for offering focused banking solutions to this under-served segment and also highlight the wider societal benefits to be derived from serving this vulnerable sector. I’d like to thank the Chartered Banker Institute for giving me and the other contestants a platform to voice our ideas on how to improve the future of our industry."
