The European Federation of Financial Analysts Societies (EFFAS)[1] is the federation of analysts associations in Europe. EFFAS comprises 27 member societies representing more than 14,000 investment professionals. EFFAS was founded in 1962 and the headquarters is located in Frankfurt, Germany.

Besides its European training programme CEFA (Certified European Financial Analyst) EFFAS also grants the Certified International Investment Analysts (CIIA) designation, ensuring professional qualification by offering global as well as local market knowledge within its examination structure. As a global designation the exams can be taken in different languages. Through the national member societies EFFAS provides a full range of services for capital market experts.

CIIA Certification[edit]

EFFAS participates in further developing the Certified International Investment Analyst (CIIA) examinations, a financial analyst designation recognised globally. Analysts who belong to European analyst associations that are members of EFFAS, are eligible to participate in the final CIIA examination, if they pass the foundation and the national exams, or if they hold the Certified European Financial Analyst diploma (CEFA).
