Luxembourg Institute for Global Financial Integrity calls for members

The Luxembourg Institute for Global Financial Integrity (LIGFI), an independent non-profit association, is now active and engaged in recruiting members and partners within and outside the global financial sector.

Created in May 2009, LIGFI aims to serve as a center of excellence and a forum through empirical research and constructive and open dialogue with the purpose of encouraging widespread use of the principles of integrity of fairness, transparency, responsibility and accountability. The bottom line is to restore trust and confidence in the financial sector worldwide, especially among investors, shareholders and other stakeholders who are directly or indirectly affected by financial activity.

LIGFI calls for banks, other financial services and service providers to the financial sector to join the association and participate in activities to develop and promote business standards and practices based on professional excellence, ethics and integrity.

Members will be called upon to financially support the LIGFI association through membership dues and/or grants and to shape and actively participate in its research work addressing corporate financial governance and market integrity.

The Luxembourg Institute for Global Financial Integrity therefore invites all financial sector stakeholders to join as members or partners and to contribute to the challenging undertaking that LIGFI is committed to assume as a non-profit association and industry association.

In order to encourage a constructive and open dialogue, LIGFI has launched a blog on its website ( and looks forward to communicating with all parties having diverse opinions and perspectives on the issues facing the financial sector worldwide, national financial centers and jurisdictions.
