To remain competitive and at the forefront of innovation, Europe must be open to cross-border flows of knowledge, ideas, capital and investment. The benefit in doing so ultimately accrues to European citizens and businesses.
Europe rightly strives for high regulatory standards. That said, EFAMA strongly believes our rules need to be well calibrated, so Europe can partake in global competition on a level playing field. Our policy work consistently advocates for a dynamic regulatory environment, which enables European financial markets to remain globally competitive.

Q #1 What is the European Fund Classification (EFC) and why is it different from other classifications?
The mission at the heart of our work on the European Fund Classification scheme is to help investors, and the wider European funds industry, to find and compare similar fund peer groups in a meaningful way. This mission is particularly relevant in an era of rising cross-border fund sales because the EFC enables investors and their advisers to compare funds across different European jurisdictions consistently.
