Welcome to BAZ
The Bankers Association of Zambia (BAZ) is an industry body representing the 19 registered Commercial Banks in Zambia. These include both Zambian and international banks. The Bankers Association of Zambia is the mandated representative of the commercial banking sector and addresses industry issues such as lobbying, policy influence, and guiding transformation in the sector. BAZ also acts as a catalyst for constructive and sustainable change in the sector, research and development and does engage with critical stakeholders like the Government of Zambia, Bank of Zambia as the Banks primary regulator, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Pensions and Insurance Authority (PIA) and the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission. BAZ works to ensure the banking industry views are put forward when Government determines policy or legislation. The association also ensures the banking system can continue to deliver the benefits of competition to the Zambian banking customers.
