Legg Mason latest to join EFPA Spain on advisers' training boost

The global asset management division of Legg Mason has been the latest to partner with the Spanish delegation of the European Financial Planning and Advisory Association (EFPA) for the promotion of continuous training to financial advisers.

The agreement implies the launch of various training courses and educational conferences aimed at preparing advisers for the re-certification of the following qualifications: European Investment Assistant (EIA), European Investment Practitioner (EIP), European Financial Advisor (EFA) and European Financial Planner (EFP).

Through the deal, Legg Mason Global Asset Management will support EFPA Spain's actions aimed at promoting financial advisers' training and certification, while EFPA will help the manager to spread any activity aimed at increasing the presence of new developments in the field of portfolio management and the hiring of any financial instrument. 

Following this latest agreement, EFPA Spain has 71 corporate partners, including some of the main national and global banking entities as well as asset managers.
