In these and all other matters;
My word is my bond.

The Vision

A banking and finance industry that
meets the community’s needs and has its full confidence thereby fulfilling its integral role in society.

The Leadership Circle

A series of events for senior leaders and those identified as future leaders in the industry. The essence of the Leadership Circle is personal storytelling.

The intimate format involves a panel that varies from 2 – 4 leaders from banking and finance discussing times in their professional lives when their moral compass was challenged and how they navigated their way to an ethical solution. The discussion is followed by an informal Q&A.


Please contact us if there are any speakers and/or subjects you would like discussed in a public forum with the BFO signatories and we will do our best to make it happen.
