Dear Industry Colleague,
On behalf of our membership, I am proud to have this opportunity to tell you about the Structured Finance Industry Group (“SFIG”).
SFIG was established with the core mission of supporting a robust and liquid securitization market, recognizing that securitization is an essential source of core funding for the real economy. Under this mission, we are dedicated to:
- Educating members, legislators, regulators, and other constituencies about structured finance, securitization and related capital markets,
- Building the Broadest Possible Consensus among members on policy, legal, regulatory and other matters affecting or potentially affecting the industry,
- Advocating with respect to policy, legal, regulatory and other matters affecting or potentially affecting the industry, and
- Core Principles of Governance, Financial Transparency, Inclusion and respectful accommodation of divergent member views.
We provide a representative and transparent member-driven platform for industry education and advocacy. While we are based in Washington, DC, our members’ interests extend globally.
We boast approximately 350 institutional members (and growing), including investors, issuers, and all other participants in the structured finance industry. As a member-driven organization our advocacy is committee-based, with over 50 committees and taskforces actively engaged in representing broad industry viewpoints across all aspects of the regulatory and legislative agenda.
Our 2016 conference, ABS Vegas, held this past February at Aria Hotel, attracted over 6,700 industry participants, making it indisputably the largest structured finance conference in the world. Our next annual conference—SFIG Vegas 2017—will take place February 26 - March 1, 2017, at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. We also host multiple industry roundtables and symposiums throughout the year.
I invite you to explore our web site to learn more about SFIG, how to get involved in its committees, and what it is doing to protect our industry. Just as importantly, come to Las Vegas next February, and experience what SFIG can do for you.
SFIG Executive Director
