The International Academy of Business and Financial Management™ is an independent, non-regulated worldwide professional society of financial practitioners. We are a not for profit regulatory organization that recognizes the highest in educational, experience, ethical, and continuing education standards as dictated by the Ibanez US Supreme Court decision on financial credentials.
IABFM™ has members and chapters registered in more than 145 countries providing brand recognition for the association and for our individual designations. Our greatest recognition comes from the use of our designations on business cards and email signatures of our thousands of members worldwide. However, other 'formal' recognition is broadly and readily available.
In the last three years alone IABFM™ has been chosen by the Greek Ministry of Finance, Chinese Government, Capital Markets Authority of Saudi Arabia, Dubai Stock Exchange (Dubai Financial Market), Kuwait Ministry of Trade and Industry, Singapore Monetary Authority, Qatar Financial Centre, Central Bank of Oman and others to provide training to their employees and authorized partners. IABFM™ is also formally recognized or registered with regulators worldwide.
In 2009 IABFM™ added to our formal status or global recognition with the approval as an approved training organization for the Capital Market Authority in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and for the Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA) under the Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority.
In the United Arab Emirates, IABFM™ has recently registered with the Knowledge and Human Development Authority as a professional association and training organization, which gives the IABFM™ authority to issue diplomas and professional certificates locally in the GCC. IABFM™ is registered similarly with the Ministry of Finance in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the PAAET (Kuwait Public Authority for Applied Education & Training), and various authorities in China.
The International Academy of Business and Financial Management and it's membership is recognized by two very distinguished US-based bodies.
The American National Standards Institute. The International Academy of Business and Financial Management is a member of The American National Standards Institute (www.ansi.org). ANSI is an US institute that oversees the creation, promulgation and use of thousands of norms and guidelines that directly impact businesses in nearly every sector. ANSI is also actively engaged in accrediting programs that assess conformance to standard.
IABFM has been a member of ANSI for a number of years as such memberships add to our growing global credibility.
