The Professional Certification, which came into force in 2014, is a compulsory scheme aimed at all employees who are in contact with clients or the markets (managers, salespeople, financial analysts and trading room operators), in order to reinforce the level of competence of the teams of banking or financial institutions. Since its creation, no less than 825 Monegasque professionals have been certified, for an annual success rate of more than 82%. During his speech, the Minister of State congratulated AMAF for its action in the regulation, organization and promotion of the Principality's banking and financial sector, particularly in the context of the fight against money laundering, terrorism and corruption, as well as for the driving role it plays in the quest for excellence and professionalism in this sector.
