We’re dedicated to helping the economy grow by safely enabling greater credit access to industry, consumers and investors.

Our Purpose
The Structured Finance Association’s purpose is to help its members and public policymakers grow credit availability and the real economy in a responsible manner.

Core Values
• Help grow the real economy and improve the lives of individuals, families, businesses, and communities across the nation.
• Help make credit more affordable and available to people who need it to finance some of life’s biggest goals — education, car purchases, starting a business, buying a home — or reduce their debt through consolidation loans.
• Safeguard essential protections for consumers and the financial system.
• Facilitate valuable dialogue among the financial services market, its practitioners, policymakers and the broader public.
• Recognize that all finance entails risk, but it should not involve recklessness.
