code of ethics

1 code of ethics


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. Each certificate holder must complain with that code of ethics.

In case of failure by one of the members of EFPA, the Ethics Committee will judge this failure, if needed a certification can be withdrawn.
