The mission of the International Federation of Finance Museums (IFFM) is to provide a framework for greater collaboration among museums, facilitating the sharing of exhibits, the exchange of scholarship and scholarly resources, and the interchange of information and knowledge. The IFFM also aims to develop and implement innovative ideas and programs to advance financial literacy globally. IFFM members convene annually at an international conference that inspires innovation in the promotion of financial literacy globally, engaging media, academics, policy makers and the financial industry.
The IFFM launched in June 2013 with GFLEC serving as a founder of and adviser to the federation.
