“The only preparation for tomorrow is the right use of today”

The Eastern Caribbean Institute of Banking and Financial Institutes (ECIB) was created out of the need to enhance the human capital in the financial services sector of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union. It was set up as a learning institution, to contribute to the continued development of the study and practice of banking and financial services.

The concept of the Institute was proposed at a meeting of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank with commercial banks in 1995. The banks agreed in principle to the establishment of the Institute and to provide financial support for its operations. ECIB was incorporated as a non-profit institution under the Companies Act of St Kitts and Nevis on August 20, 1996.

The institute provides professional development courses for the staff of institutions across the financial services sector, and assists its members to develop and implement best practices, to enhance their ability to compete in the changing global economy. Among the courses offered by the institute are: Credit Appraisal Techniques (CAT 1); Risk Management; Customer Service Excellence and the University of the West Indies accredited Certificate in Financial services Practice. Other initiatives include an Annual Summer Banking School, a television series entitled “Managing Your Money”, and a quarterly publication the EC Banker.

Mr Errol Allen, Deputy Governor of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank, is the President of the ECIB. The administrative staff is comprised of the Chief Executive Officer, an Administrative Assistant and a Secretary. The offices are located at the ECCB Financial Complex, Bird Rock Road, and Basseterre, St Kitts.

The Institute functions through Local Committees in each of the ECCU member territories. The committees are comprised of representatives from the staff of the banks and other corporate members, who operate on a voluntary basis and combine these duties with their regular work schedules. The chairperson of each committee is a member of management from one of the corporate members.

ECIB is a member of the Caribbean Association of Banking and Financial Institutes.
