SFA on the Issues

Educating legislators and regulators on policy matters is essential to the structured finance industry.

As an organization whose members have incredibly diverse interests and varied perspectives, the Structured Finance Association engages in advocacy, policy and research regarding issues impacting the safe and sound functioning of the entire securitization and structured finance markets.

We see our role as that of a bridge, linking the policymaking and securitization communities to ensure that an informed, two-way dialogue allows for robust discussion and optimal policy outcomes.

SFCanada 2020

In an abundance of care for our members, conference attendees, and staff, we have made the difficult decision to cancel SFCanada 2020, May 19-20, in light of the continued uncertainties about the coronavirus (COVID-19). There is no higher priority for us than the health, safety, and physical well-being of our members and conference attendees.
