The Federation of European Independent Financial Advisers

FEIFA was established following discussions between a number of like-minded and highly experienced advisers and owners of IFA businesses, all of whom felt that there was a distinct need for such an Association - particularly in the global environment that had resulted from the economic meltdown that began to unfold in 2007.

Aims of the Federation

The Federation’s main aims are to uphold and raise standards of professionalism and to enhance the quality of advice provided; with the intention that this ultimately leads to positive and appropriate results for consumers.


​FEIFA exists for the benefit of both its members and consumers. It provides ​a strong voice for the adviser community across Europe and beyond; representing the sector with financial institutions, governments and regulatory bodies as and where relevant.

Due diligence

​The Federation is not available to all advisers and their companies. By only admitting members after a formal vetting and due diligence procedure, FEIFA is then able to provide consumers with an independent assessment of the regulatory and legal status of its member companies. This offers a level of comfort and peace of mind for consumers in any dealings with FEIFA members.


FEIFA provides a number of services that are beneficial to IFA companies, both large and small, and whether network members or not.


Improved terms from selected providers, at no extra cost to clients due to FEIFA’s active Partnership Programme.


The Federation can assist with certain compliance processes, systems and documents.
