What We Do
ξυνὸν γὰρ ἀρχὴ καὶ πέρας ἐπὶ κύκλου περιφερείας (Ηράκλειτος)
(In the periphery of the circle, the beginning and the end coincide.)
The CEFA designation was introduced in 1992 as a means of providing a high and uniform standard of training for investment professionals within Europe. The designation comprised seven topic areas based upon the EFFAS syllabus and accreditations of national member society programmes were controlled by the CTQAB (Commission on Training and Qualifications Accreditation Board).
EFFAS helped to develop the internationally recognised Certified International Investment Analyst (CIIA®) examinations – for its graduates, a veritable passport to the major financial markets of the world. The body behind the CIIA® diploma is the Association of Certified International Investment Analysts in which over 55,000 investment professionals are registered world-wide.
