CIIA® for CEFA Holders

To expand the European reach of the CEFA title, EFFAS participated in setting up the global Association of Certified International Investment Analysts (ACIIA®) and in developing the Certified International Investment Analyst (CIIA®) examinations.

CEFA Holders can directly sit the CIIA Final Examinations to get the CIIA Diploma.

To access these CIIA Final exams, the candidate has either to be a CEFA holder or – alternatively – holder of an accredited programme accepted by ACIIA. The candidate also needs to be a member of an ACIIA member association or an individual ACIIA member where there is no member association in their country or region.

Please note that CIIA training is locally organized by the EFFAS accredited National Member Societies. Please contact the participating NMS in your country.

The complete list of countries with a participating NMS can be found HERE.
