The Federation of European Independent Financial Advisers (Feifa), a trade association that represents English-speaking financial advisers operating throughout mainland Europe, has partnered with UK investment firm Jupiter Asset Management.
The partnership will involve Jupiter helping Feifa members with their professional developing through training and participation with annual conferences.
Jupiter is now the 37th member of Feifa’s partnership scheme.
Feifa chief executive, Paul Stanfield, said: “Jupiter meets our criteria of affiliating with high quality, well-regulated investment houses.
“In addition, Jupiter is keen to assist with regards to our professional development work and has already worked with us in this manner, providing highly beneficial presentations to a number of our member firms.”
Jupiter and Feifa have already worked together at the latter’s Masterclass seminars at the end of 2018 and are looking to do more of the same in 2019.
International Adviser understands that Feifa will be announcing a new partnership next week.
Jupiter’s national development manager, Chris Johns, will head up relationships with Feifa members.
Johns said: “As we have grown, our strong culture has been essential in keeping our entrepreneurial, talent-driven spirit.
“We believe in active fund management, working together to share investment ideas, yet ensuring our fund managers take individual responsibility for their own portfolios.
“We recognise that the advisory environment is always changing and we aim to serve it where and when we can and work in partnership with our strategic partners.
“To this end, the relationship with Feifa is key in Europe.”
