Join Industry Leaders - Becoming an AFSA member puts you in touch with other leaders and top management in the financial services industry.
Outreach to the Investment Community - AFSA holds two annual investors conferences in the U.S. and Europe that feature many of the largest debt issuers in the finance industry providing in-depth commentaries on their strategies and operations and meet one-on-one with major fixed-income investors.
Access Cutting-Edge Statistical Research - AFSA commissions research from top academics and other highly credible sources to provide a sound pragmatic basis upon which to make the case for the industry. AFSA members have the opportunity to guide this research agenda.
Participate in Campaign-Style Advocacy - AFSA conducts strong public affairs initiatives, including grassroots activities, media outreach and issues advertising to establish a positive identity for the industry and put adversaries on the defensive.
