Formerly the Australian Finance Conference, the Australian Finance Industry Association [AFIA] was established in 1958 for the purpose of representing its members in the finance industry. In 2017 we amalgamated with our affiliated organisations AELA, DIFA and AFLA to unite as one association with over 130 Full and Associate Members.
AFIA is the voice of a diverse Australian finance sector. We have over 130 members operating nationally as financiers in the consumer and commercial markets.
We deliver our key strategic objectives of representation, insights and connectivity to drive a fair, sustainable and competitive market. Together, we can influence change that has a positive impact on our industry and enable your customers to access the finance they need.
Together we represent all segments, products and distribution channels across our sector, exponentially enhancing AFIA’s influence and ability to grow, support and promote the finance industry.
Through established credibility and a long-standing presence within the industry, we offer members an opportunity to connect and engage with reputable businesses, regulators and government officials in the finance sector.
We differentiate from other associations through drawing operational insights from our members to inform our representation and propose practical solutions. This is done through professional development opportunities, data reports on the state of the sector, research into emerging legislative and regulatory reform areas, and compliance and risk management guidance.
