As a UK headquartered bank with a major presence in India, we are focussed on creating avenues that facilitate knowledge sharing across the two countries. We've worked closely with the Indian authorities and the British government, to support talented Indian professionals to benefit from UK universities' world class expertise and in turn inform the development in India's fast growing financial services industry. The programme will strengthen further cooperation between India and the UK (the world's largest exporter of financial services) and help improve industry capability in both countries as India seeks to scale up its financial sector capabilities".

The objective is that the fellows return to their professional positions of influence and continue engagement with the UK to strengthen cooperation between the two countries in their field of work. The fellowship will offer a high quality professional development opportunity which will provide specialist skills to encourage innovation and help improve industry capability in India.
