The Turkish Bankers Association UK (TBA) was founded by İş Bankasi, Ziraat Bankasi, Turkiye Cumhuriyeti Merkez Bankasi and Turkish Bank UK in London in 1990. It is open to those working in the City of London's financial services (as well as its side sectors). The Association has a membership of just over 2,000 finance professionals in London, and a further 4,000 members who were once working in London but have now moved to Istanbul, NY, Paris, Frankfurt, Tokyo or Hong Kong. The Association is a non-profit organization with the mission to establish strong working relations among its members.

The proceeds from the 19th Turkish Bankers Ball were donated to Cancer Research and Children with Leukemia. TPQ's were included in all gift bags that went out to TBA's members.
