IFA Life serves as an “online community” for over 7,000 financial advisers, FEIFA said. Among other things, members can use the site as a platform to network, share best practice, debate industry issues, search for and advertise jobs, and find marketing tips.
In addition, a continental Europe forum allows IFAs to share best practice across international borders. “With an ever-increasing EU-focus on financial regulation and distribution, it makes absolute sense that the main IFA companies operating on the Continent should become a part of this online community,” said FEIFA.
The partnership is the latest in a series of such agreements announced by FEIFA. As International Adviser reported in September, the association joined forces with Sterling Associates – a firm which specialises in the global relocation of financial services workers.
FEIFA, a non-profit trade association for English-speaking advisers, represents more than 300 IFAs advising on assets in excess of €2.5bn ($3.4bn).
