FEIFA - THE FEDERATION OF EUROPEAN INDEPENDENT FINANCIAL ADVISERS

FEIFA is a trade association that represents English-speaking Financial Advisers operating throughout mainland Europe. Whilst it exists to assist such businesses and individuals, it also aims to increase professional and technical standards of advice for the ultimate benefit of consumers.

The Federation provides a strong voice for the adviser community across Europe and beyond; representing the sector with financial institutions and, where relevant, with governments and regulatory bodies.

Membership is not available to all advisers and their companies. We only admit members following a relevant vetting and due diligence procedure.

​FEIFA therefore provides consumers with an independent assessment of the regulatory status of its member companies, who also sign up to a Code of Conduct.

FEIFA offers a valuable service for advisers by helping to establish a favourable operating environment, a forum for discussion and by distributing relevant industry and technical information to assist them in their businesses.

ABOUT THE FEDERATION

FEIFA regularly receives media coverage from well renowned industry publications including “International Adviser” and “International Investment“,
which provide up to the minute news for advisers across the globe.

The Federation is also privileged to be a Partner Association of the Convention of Independent Financial Advisors (CIFA)​ – and a member of FECIF​ – a pan-European trade association that represents in excess of 500,000 individual professionals across the Continent. ​

Our members also sign up to a Code of Conduct, which provides criteria as to the manner in which they should look after and represent their clients.

Prospective clients can verify whether a company is a member of FEIFA by viewing our Member List​ page. If you would like to view the full list of benefits for consumers, please read our factsheet on the Downloads & Links page.
