When the Imperial Bank of India was formed on 27 January 1921 by the merger of the three presidency banks – the Bank of Bengal, Bank of Bombay and Bank of Madras – Warren became its first Managing-Governor.

As head of the Imperial Bank of India, Warren was instrumental in the founding of the Indian Institute of Bankers and served as its first President in 1928. He resigned in 1928 and returned to England. Warren had been made a Knight Bachelor in 1917 and was subsequently made a Knight Commander of the Order of the Indian Empire in the 1922 New Year Honours list.
