Industry councils

Steering the strategic direction of the future of finance

FINSIA’s industry councils bring our policy agenda to life and validate the standards of professional attainment expected of FINSIA members.

The councils also determine the eligibility criteria for our higher membership levels and assist in the alignment of our training programs with the educational needs of the industry.

With leading institutional and individual representatives, the councils cover each of the industry verticals that FINSIA represents.
