The members of the EFFAS-EBC are individuals, attending either on behalf of EFFAS or EFFAS society member or on their own behalf.
Members are individuals interested in the bond markets and related activities such as the derivatives markets, fund management, settlement systems, market analysis and other areas generally subsumed under the title "Bond Market Professional".
The membership of the EFFAS-EBC is thus wide-ranging and varied, with a natural bias towards analysis.
We currently have 75 members from some twenty different countries and all walks of the business.
Membership is free, pro-bono and new members are welcome.
If you wish to join the EFFAS-EBC or to attend meetings on an observer basis, please feel free to contact the Secretariat.
