The Group's members are companies who need effective business continuity arrangements to allow them to recover promptly from business interruptions and problems.
The TBCG's membership is representative of a broad cross section of financial institutions. Our members include building societies, global investment banks, retail banks, insurance companies, a major retailer with a substantial financial arm, fund managers and finance companies.
Whatever the nature of your own organisation there are lessons to be learnt from other ones, which, seemingly, is why, in addition to the London based contingent, there have been regular attendees at the meetings from as far afield as Yorkshire, Gloucestershire, East Anglia, Bristol and Dorset. This geographic spread adds considerably to the exchange of information.
Membership is restricted by the TBCG Constitution by the phrase “it is anticipated the membership organisations will not exceed 75”. The aim of this is to ensure that we can get to know each other and thus feel comfortable discussing problems and concerns with each other.
Membership is corporate, with an annual subscription. Members include (but are not limited to) HSBC, Lloyds, Willis, Marks & Spencer plc, UBS, Santander & BNP Paribas.
Thanks to the active involvement and participation of members in the group’s activities, as well as the hospitality of member organisations, we have, so far, been able to maintain its annual subscription at £50 per annum since its formation.
