What we do


“We want to enhance the dialogue between the finance industry, businesses, policymakers and society.“<<
Dr. Bettina Orlopp, Chair of the Association of Banks in Hessen

Our tasks are diverse and we adapt our focus to reflect the relevant issues of the day.

  • Political lobbying: the role of intermediary between banks and policymakers is one of the core tasks of the Association of Banks in Hesse.
  • Events: we organise regular dialogue between the financial industry and representatives from the world of business, politics, society and academia & research.
  • Economic education: for many years the Association of Banks in Hesse has been committed to supporting teachers by holding advanced training seminars on economics and finance in close cooperation with the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management. We also promote the continuing education of bank employees by hosting training events that address financial, economic and social policy issues of topical interest. In addition, we regularly present awards to particularly successful students.


“We focus on issues of relevance to banks and society as a whole, such as digitalisation, sustainable finance and economic education.“
Sarah Schmidtke, Managing Director of the Association of Banks in Hesse
