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.
