Efma, a not-for-profit association formed in 1971 by bankers and insurers, specialises in retail financial marketing and distribution. Today, more than 3,300 brands in 130 countries are Efma members including over 80% of Europe's largest retail financial institutions.

The membership fees are paid annually.

Institutions joining during the year pay a proportional fee according to the period remaining in the year.

The minimum membership period is two full calendar years.

Subsidiaries and affiliates of an institution joining Efma are also considered to be members of the association.

There are three levels of membership fees in accordance with the size of the institution, and a fourth level reserved for associations and professional groups. For the first 3 levels, the criterion used to distinguish between membership fees is the widely accepted ranking of “The Banker” magazine, reflecting the consolidated activities of financial institutions.
