The association has grown and has included sub-sectors such as Asset Management, Corporate Banking, Corporate Finance, Corporate Managerial and Financial Consulting, Employee Benefits, Insurance, Investment Banking, Retail Banking, Private Banking, Private Equity, Stock broking, Treasury and Development Finance Institutions (DFIs).

Through ABSIP’s mission statement, “To build leaders that shapes the future of the Financial Services industry and the broader economy”, the ABSIP Bursary is founded in 2013 which aims to support disadvantaged black students who possess academic excellence, an interest to pursue financial services careers and are university students in South Africa. The bursary covers financial assistance according to potential candidate’s academic standings and financial situation.
The ABSIP bursary is only open to disadvantaged black students in the relevant or critical/scarce fields of study. The bursary is made possible by partnerships with Standard Bank Group and the sponsorship commitment of Regiments Capital. In return, successful applicants have the responsibility to maintain good academic performance as well as to participate in ABSIP activities. Apply now for the ABSIP Bursary 2018 – 2019.
