The Federation of European International Financial Advisers (FEIFA) has announced membership growth in excess of 10% so far this year.
"We are very pleased to see that our services and message are being heard and appreciated by an increasing number of companies," FEIFA's CEO, Paul Stanfield, explained.
The Federation puts this growth down to a number of factors: "First, we have been able to focus a little more time on membership growth in recent months and this has helped to stimulate some potential member firms to complete all of the due diligence requirements," Stanfield said.
"Second, we are working more closely with the Nexus Global network to ensure that all of its relevant firms understand the benefits of FEIFA membership, and this is now bearing fruit for all concerned.
"Third, Brexit has created great uncertainty, of course, and we have been able to assist our members in this regard, and will obviously continue to do so."
The seven companies that have joined FEIFA as new members in 2019 are GPI Europe, Harrison Brook, SJB, Imperius Wealth, EBG, AVC Advisory and Susanka.
FEIFA is a non-profit trade association that supports and assists English-speaking advisers and advisory firms across Europe. It also has a range of affiliations with all of the relevant international life companies, major asset managers, and the key international pension and trust companies. It works with these entities to provide significant professional development and training services to its membership.
