"Helping those in need build a better future"
The SFIG Foundation is an affiliate of SFIG. The SFIG Foundation seeks to support youth education, and will initially partner with Scholarship America and Mentor Foundation USA to develop and provide scholarship programs for the young people engaged in the Mentor Foundation’s programs. The SFIG Foundation will also connect scholarship winners to the significant network of the SFIG membership, which represents all sectors of the securitization market including issuers, investors, financial intermediaries, law firms, accounting firms, technology firms, rating agencies, servicers, and trustees.

Nearly 400 structured finance professionals enjoyed SFIG's Industry Dinner on January 19, 2017 at The Plaza in New York City. Net proceeds from the dinner benefited the SFIG Foundation, which will help high school students taking part in Mentor Foundation's mentoring activities to further their goals via scholarships for post-secondary education, trade school, or other career pursuits. Scholarship America is helping to develop and administer the scholarship programs.
The Reggie Imamura Awards for Outstanding Contribution to the Securitization Industry, aka "The Reggies," were presented at the dinner in honor of Reggie Imamura, SFIG's founding chairman and a driving force behind the creation of this organization. The five recipients of the 2017 Reggies are:
- Reggie Imamura, SFIG Founding Chairman (presented posthumously to Reggie's wife, Lisa Imamura)
- David Duzyk, Global Chairman of Investment Banking, JP Morgan
- Rick Rogers, Managing Director, Prudential Financial
- Wendy Cohn, Managing Director, Fitch Ratings
- Patricia Evans, Vice-President, Wilmington Trust
We look forward to welcoming our community back to SFIG's Industry Dinner next year. Thank you very much for your support!
