EFFAS monitors the integrity of its members. Investors’ confidence in the integrity of professional advice is the most important precondition for a well-functioning European financial market.
EFFAS is committed to the pluralism of a federal Europe and therefore does not impose a unified European code of ethics on its members, but instead promotes the Principles of Ethical Conduct. These respect the different cultural and legal frameworks of each EFFAS society, provide a guideline for Member Societies in shaping their own codes of conduct, and ensure that financial analysts and asset managers conduct their professional activities in compliance with internationally recognised standards of professional conduct and the European regulation.
