The International Banking and Finance Institute

The International Banking and Finance Institute, created in 1997, is in charge of the Banque de France’s external cooperation. This includes the organisation of international training programmes, as well as technical cooperation with foreign central banks and supervisory bodies.

The IBFI proposes series of training seminars, typically lasting 2 to 5 days and covering all central bank functions. Topics evolve according to the needs expressed by our partners. The seminars include theoretical and practical presentations, situational exercises and case studies. 

The IBFI also provides technical assistance to foreign central banks and supervisory bodies, by sending Banque de France experts to take part in bilateral or multilateral missions (IMF, World Bank, EU).
