The aim of the Lafferty Councils is to help our members serve their customers better, improve profitability and thereby generate long-term shareholder value.

Councils are independent forums where senior bankers and other industry leaders meet their peers in confidential sessions and work together to identify best practices and brainstorm the future of the industry. Each member also receives a tailored package of products and services — including access to global research databases, newsletters, management reports, research reports, conferences, online workshops and concierge services. Members are supported by a permanent secretariat for assistance on a day-to-day basis.

Current Councils include:

  • The Brexit Council
  • International Retail Banking Council
  • International Cards and Payments Council
  • Global Merchant Services Council
  • Retail Banking Councils for Africa

Councils have two identities for our members:
1. The council meetings that take place twice year
2. The tailored products and services provided to each member

The Councils director is Caroline Hastings — who is also available to assist members. Michelle Loftus specialises in the Brexit Council.
