Stay tuned for more updates and upcoming events from the Institute of Financial Integrity and Sustainability (IFIS) as we continue to foster dialogue and promote best practices in the financial sector.
Since 2009 a number of our founders saw the need to foster fairness, transparency, responsibility and accountability in the financial sector. Financial market players are best served by an open and active debate of the issues of integrity.
Ten years on, integrity, sustainability and trust have become driving factors for lasting success in the financial markets and mutual acceptance by all stakeholders – market actors, regulators, governments, clients and civil society at large.
