ACIIA, Association of Certified International Investment Analysts, groups a network of National Member Societies, such as ABAF/BVFA, which represent investment professionals in their respective countries and regions.
The objective of ACIIA is to promote a flexible, internationally recognized professional qualification, called CIIA or Certified International Investment Analyst certificate. This qualification examines candidates at a high standard about both global topic areas and local regulations, combined with market practices, that are necessary to pursue a career in the investment profession.
In doing so, ACIIA strives to:
- Encourage and provide a forum for the creation and interchange of ideas and information in the finance and investment field.
- Support and promote the interests of the investment community.
- Promote ethical behaviour in the industry.
Since it’s inauguration, ACIIA membership has grown to 23 associations worldwide. The members are spread throughout Asia, Europe, Central and South America, the Middle East and Africa and encompass a wide variety of languages, cultures and business customs.
Through our EFFAS membership, ABAF/BVFA represents EFFAS in the General Meeting and Board of Directors of ACIIA.
