Jesús López Zaballos
EFFAS Chairman

Dear EFFAS members,

Dear colleagues,

EFFAS actively continues its participating in several European events. EFFAS believes it is important that our voice as representatives of users of financial information is heard. Therefore, we want to thank all the institutions, speakers and participants who have contributed to such events.

The renewal of our office staff has been completed, and therefore I take this opportunity to introduce you today to the complete EFFAS team at the Frankfurt Head Office, in our new offices in the Hamburger Allée.

Finally, we sadly have to inform you that Chris Golden, past EFFAS Board member and Chairman of the EFFAS Bond Commission for more than two decades has passed away. Our thoughts are with his family.

I look forward to meet you all at the next EFFAS AGM in Stockholm.
