One of the goals of our Association is to build a home base for the international financial community as the profession of financial analyst has become a global one. The introduction of the EURO has made transnational sector analysis a standard, shifting away from traditional country based approaches. To this purpose international cooperation between different analyst societies has been started already years ago. In this context ABAF-BVFA is part of both the European federation “EFFAS – European Federation of Financial Analysts Societies” and the worldwide association “ACIIA- Association of Certified International Investment Analysts”. Within these federations local societies actively work together on different topics like financial analysis training-updates, IFRS taxonomy, ESG and Integrated Reporting.
