February 2014
 
Jesús López Zaballos
EFFAS Chairman

We began 2014 with renewed enthusiasm and a strong commitment to increase the supply of services to our members. Two new professional certifications in Risk Management and ESG and the launch of the new EFFAS e-learning platform are the first actions to meet this objective in the field of continuing education. On the other hand, in the field of research, we will focus our efforts on the analysis of the implications of the new regulations in Europe and the future of the new alternative financing markets for the European SMEs.
