Code of Conduct

In February 2007, the Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP) adopted the code of conduct for promoting the risk management profession. 

 

The Israel Association of Valuators and Financial Actuaries (IAVFA) adopted GARP's code of conduct and see it as our code of conduct.

 

IAVFA's code of conduct is comprised of 5 Principles and Professional Standards:

 

​Professional Integrity and Ethical Conduct

IAVFA's members pledged to act professionally, ethically and with integrity, to exercise reasonable judgment in the provision of risk services while maintaining independence of thought and direction, not knowingly to misrepresent details, not to engage in any professional conduct involving dishonesty or deception, and not to compromise our integrity.

 

​Conflict of Interest

IAVFA's members pledged to act fairly in all situations and must fully disclose any actual or potential conflict and to make full and fair disclosure of all matters that could reasonably be expected to impair our independence and objectivity.

 

Confidentiality

IAVFA's members pledged not to make use of confidential information for inappropriate purposes, to maintain the confidentiality of both our work and our client, and not to use confidential information to benefit personally.

 

Fundamental Responsibilities

IAVFA's members pledged to comply with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations (including this code, when in the case of conflict, the law overcomes this code), always strive to understand the needs and complexity of the client, to be diligent about not overstating the accuracy or certainty of results or conclusions, to clearly disclose the relevant limits of the results or conclusions, and not to outsource or delegate the ethical responsibility to others.

 

General Accepted Practices

IAVFA's members pledged to collect, analyze and distribute value and risk information with the highest level of professional objectivity, to execute all services with diligence, to be familiar with current generally accepted valuation and financial actuarial science practices, and to make a distinction between fact and opinion in the presentation of analysis and recommendations.

The Israel Association of Valuators and Financial Actuaries (IAVFA) is a professional organization, an institution for professional training and a body which specializes in placing professional employees in the financial sector in Israel. IAVFA strives to voluntarily regulate the professions of valuation and financial actuarial science in Israel, both by setting pre-qualification requirements, ethical principles for practitioners in these professions, and by training and certifying quality professionals for these professions. IAVFA provides both placement services in order to integrate its credentialed members in leading positions within the Israeli labor market, and mediation services between valuation consumers and valuation specialists.
