ABAF/BVFA is a professional non-profit organization and was founded in 1958.
Our aim is to be the centre of expertise for the community of finance professionals in Belgium, i.e. corporate finance professionals, private bankers & investors, PE houses, family offices. We build a common knowledge base on financial analysis, reporting, valuation and communication and thereby want to raise the professional standard for investment professionals in those domains.
In that way, we want to contribute to the improvement of the quality, adequacy and correctness of financial, corporate and non-financial information provided to investors.
We are member of EFFAS, the European Federation of Financial Analysts Societies, a pan-European group of national societies, that is continuously in contact with the economic and financial authorities in order to facilitate the modernization and best knowledge of capital markets. Thanks to our collaboration, we can keep our Belgian companies informed about the latest standards for the finance industry.
