The Institute of Professional Financial Managers (IPFM), established in 1992, provides an organization for professional, financial managers. The IPFM set out to fill the niche market between the accountancy and treasury management professions.
There has been a steady growth in the membership with several hundred applications each year. The total number of members registered is over 10,000. Members have come from over 40 countries.
There has also been a steady demand from members to be representatives in their own countries. There are over 30 such representations around the world.
IPFM has established links with reciprocal bodies in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Ghana, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, South Africa, UK, USA and Zimbabwe. These bodies accept our members as their members on payment of the appropriate fee. In most instances, there is no need for our members to complete application forms other than the one on joining the IPFM.
The IPFM provides educational services to Cameroun, Cambodia, China, Gambia, Kenya, Nigeria, Russia, Swaziland and Zimbabwe. These usually take the form of our approving the educational structures of local bodies and issuing certificates and diplomas.
Membership ranges from the Associate class through to the Doctoral Fellow class. Membership of the Institute confers the following benefits:
