The QFA Board is a limited company made up of representation from The Institute of Bankers in Ireland (IOB), The Insurance Institute of Ireland (III) and LIA.


The QFA Board was primarily set up:


1. To establish the academic standards for all modules and examinations leading to the QFA Designation.

2. To establish and create awareness of the QFA (Qualified Financial Adviser) qualification which has jointly replaced the IOB's Certificate in Investment Advice, the III's Financial Planning Certificate (ROI) and LIA's Associateship qualifications.

3. To implement the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programme for holders of the QFA designation.
