Hampden & Co Assistant Banking Manager Matthew Nimbley reached the final of the Chartered Banker Institute’s ‘Young Banker of the Year 2021’ after rounds of intense competition and the testing of his idea by a panel of industry experts.

This year, young bankers from around the world were asked to present an idea they could develop in their organisation that could improve outcomes for clients, colleagues, and communities, reflecting their vision for the future of the industry, whilst being consistent with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Matthew reached the final with his proposal for a ‘Hampden & Co E-Statement’, an idea based on guiding clients towards more environmentally-friendly spending behaviours.

Speaking on his achievement, Matt said: “To have represented Hampden & Co in the final was an incredible honour and one that I will always be proud of. For the first time in its history, the competition was international; welcoming applications from across the globe. It has been the greatest achievement of my career so far.”

The Young Banker of the Year awards were launched in 1987 to recognise and reward those who reflect the qualities of client-focused, ethical professionalism promoted by the Institute and expected by society.
