Founded in 1977 as the Institute of Bankers Malaysia (or Institut Bank-bank Malaysia (IBBM)), it transformed into AICB in 2014 and today, has over 35,000 members. The Institute is governed by a council of representatives from Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM), The Association of Banks in Malaysia (ABM), and the Malaysian Investment Banking Association (MIBA).
