FEIFA is a Trade Association that exists for the benefit of consumers and of its Members, who are English-speaking Independent Financial Advisers (IFAs). It provides a strong voice for the IFA community across Europe and beyond; representing the sector both with financial institutions and, where relevant, with governments and regulatory bodies.
The Federation is not available to all IFA companies. By only admitting Members following a relevant vetting and due diligence procedure, FEIFA provides consumers with an independent assessment of the regulatory status of its Member companies. Our Members also sign up to a Code of Conduct.
FEIFA provides a service to IFAs by helping to establish a favourable operating environment, a forum for discussion and by distributing considerable industry and technical information to assist them in their businesses.
Please see our Role & Services page for further details of the scope of FEIFA, or for further information on the Membership benefits for IFAs please see the Members' Benefits Factsheet on our Downloads page. Benefits for Consumers

Our Members also sign up to a Code of Conduct, which provides criteria as to the manner in wihch they should look after their clients. Prospective clients can check whether a company is a Member of FEIFA by viewing our Member List page.
