Approved Bodies to conduct Client Protection Certifications

Cerise+SPTF authorizes certain organizations to conduct Client Protection Certifications*. These organizations must have robust systems in place to ensure, in an impartial and professional manner, a Client Protection Certification. The methodology is aligned with the Universal Standards. This ensures the quality and comparability of the results of certifications.

* Please note that Cerise+SPTF approves certification bodies, but does not not oversee or approve the individual certifications of financial service providers. This remains under the responsibility of the approved certification bodies.

Cofinancing Facilities

Cerise+SPTF currently manages three regional cofinancing facilities called RIFFs (Responsible Inclusive Finance Facilities). These facilities co-finance training or technical assistance for financial service providers wishing to improve their social and environmental performance management practices.

RIFFs are fully funded by external donors. Cerise+SPTF actively raise funds to sustain these facilities and allow new regions to benefit from them.
