Code of Ethics

Professional associations of financial advisers fulfill a number of important functions in the financial sector: on the basis of high quality training and qualifications as well as of widely accepted codes of professional conduct, our organizations can build on solid foundation of ethical behavior, competence and technical skills in financial markets. A central goal of EFPA is to promote the development and dissemination of such international professional standards in order to contribute towards the highest level of quality in the professional practice of financial advisers.

EFPA is convinced that every financial adviser is defined by two main features: professional integrity and professional qualification. Ethics and skills are the two dimensions by which every financial adviser should be measured. After all, potential clients must be able to trust the integrated European financial market and its major actors.

Therefore EFPA is promoting the dissemination of a European Code of Ethics.
