What is the Enhanced Competency Framework?

The Enhanced Competency Framework (ECF) sets out an enhanced level of core competence and on-going professional development of private wealth management (PWM) practitioners who undertake customer-facing roles. It is a non-statutory framework separate from the existing licensing or registration regime for the securities industry.

The ECF is PWM-oriented, covering knowledge of Asia Pacific markets and practical application of PWM-related knowledge, with strong emphasis on ethics and compliance.
