Introduction to EFC

The European Fund Classification (EFC) is a pan-European classification system developed by the European Fund Categorization Forum (EFCF) – a working group of the European Fund and Asset Management Association (EFAMA). Currently, around 23000 entities (funds and share classes) supplied by 130 leading European fund groups have been classified under the verified classification scheme. In addition, there are currently over 40.000 share classes included in the indicative classification. 

What is the European Fund Classification?

The classification is a standardized set of fund classification rules allowing funds to be easily compared regardless of country specific classification rules, but on a much wider Pan-European scale.

Benefits of the Classification

  • Transparent comparisons of cross-border funds
  • A common language for fund classifications
  • Less controversial peer group analysis
