The International Forfaiting Association, IFA, is the worldwide trade association for commercial companies, financial institutions and intermediaries engaged in forfaiting.
Founded in August 1999 and with more than 140 members the IFA aims to foster business relationships and enable best practice among those engaged in the ever-expanding, global forfaiting community.
As our membership and the range of countries represented by our members increases, the IFA acts as a valuable platform for members to interact. The primary goal of the IFA’s members is to transact forfaiting business profitably and safely.
The IFA welcomes new members. Full details of the benefits of membership can be found on the benefits of membership page. This includes those of associate membership for organisations that do not conduct forfaiting transactions, but wish to retain a strong link to the forfaiting community.
