The National Securities Commission (CNV) of Argentina has granted recognition to the international professional certifications promoted by the Argentine Institute of Finance Executives (IAEF), in collaboration with the SpanishInstitute of Finance Executives (IEAF) and the European Federation of Financial Analysts Societies (EFFAS).
The CNV through the General Resolution 706 dated 09/14/2017 has granted recognition to the three training courses promoted by the Instituto Argentino de Ejecutivos de Finanzas (IAEF), being our Certified European Financial Analyst CEFA one of the qualifications receiving the distinction.
As of 2013, there is a new framework in Argentina. The local regulator CNV (Comisión Nacional de Valores) put in force a new Capital Markets Law (26.831 - "Ley de Mercado de Capitales") which requires registration at the CNV prior to becoming a financial analyst, wealth manager, financial advisor, or similar profession.
As of January 2017, the Comisión Nacional de Valores (CNV) takes an Examination of Suitability to market agents as a mandatory requirement to access the registration.
With the CNVrecognition, CEFA holders are enabled to carry out professional financial advisory activities and accredit the qualification requirements settled by the laws of Argentina.Professionals who pass the CEFAexaminations areautomatically compliant with the requirement demanded by the regulator to registered agentsand therefore exempted from the Examination of Suitability required by the National Securities Commission of Argentina.
