​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​FEIFA is a trade association that represents English-speaking Independent Financial Advisers (IFAs) 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 IFA 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 IFA 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 IFA​s 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.

FEIFA regularly receives media coverage from well renowned industry publications including "International Adviser", which provides up to the minute news for IFAs across the globe. You can see its Editor interview our Chief Executive about our Code of Conduct, the evolution of the Federation and the risks of advising expats for UK advisers​.​​

The Federation is also privileged to be a Partner Association of the Convention of Independent Financial Advisors (CIFA) - www.cifango.org - and a member of FECIF - www.fecif.org - a pan-European trade association that represents in excess of 400,000 individual professionals across the Continent. ​

Please refer to our Role & Services page for further details of the scope of FEIFA and the many advantages the non-profit association offers; from providing information and advice on compliance and regulatory matters to lead generation opportunities and access to industry training and recruitment services, to name a few.

Benefits for consumers

By not automatically accepting all IFAs, and by instigating an appropriate due diligence process with regards to all membership applications, FEIFA ensures that, to the best of its knowledge, any member of the Federation has proven itself to be appropriately regulated and licensed for its ​activities. 

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 see the relevant factsheet on our Downloads & Links​ section.
