It gathers professionals in the Belgian finance industry whose activities include the application of fundamental financial analysis (such as sell-side and buy-side equity research, bond research, strategists, portfolio managers, …).
The ABAF/BVFA organizes each year the Award for Best Financial Information, which is considered as a strong tool to improve the quality and quantity of the information provided by the listed companies to the investors.
