The third in this year’s series of Efma councils, a unique networking service for Efma members, will take place in Barcelona, Spain on 6-7 November.

CaixaBank, the current leader of the Spanish market with 13 million customers, is to welcome Efma council members to the CaixaForum in Barcelona for their third meeting of the year this November.

From 6-7 November, the bank will host seven different council meetings: the Affluent and Private Banking Council, Operational Excellence Council, Physical Channels Council, Digital Channels Council, SME Council, Insurance Council, and the Fintech and Innovation Council.

At this occasion, all the Efma team would like to thank Alain Enault for the contribution he has made for all these years, managing the Affluent and Private Banking Council as well as the Insurance Council. Alain will be replaced by Silvia Cunill.

Each council brings together an exclusive group of senior executives from leading banks and insurance companies, allowing them to collaborate, network, discuss and exchange best practices with their peers in order to stay abreast of the latest ideas and developments in the industry.

Council members will also get to attend a Flamenco Show and eat tapas in the Poble Espanyol.

The councils are free to attend and available to Efma members only. Non-members are eligible to join the Insurance Council meeting, but must pay a fee to do so.

To date, Efma councils have gathered together more than 242 members from 39 countries. By being involved in an Efma council, members have access to a multitude of networking and knowledge sharing events, including the opportunity to attend three working sessions per year, as well as collaborative sessions, benchmarking workshops, study presentations and sessions dedicated to hot topics such as fintechs and start-ups.
