INFiN members are part of the strong and united front of consumer financial services providers from across the country who are working together to protect and advance the interests of their businesses and customers.
As a recognized national trade association, INFiN provides a mechanism for individual members to pool their resources and leverage their relationships to positively educate and influence decision-makers in Congress, the Administration, and the many regulatory agencies that have jurisdiction over consumer financial services. INFiN also engages on behalf of members in states across the country when legislative and regulatory issues are presented at the state and local levels.
This environment requires expert government relations and public relations teams, along with a knowledgeable staff, who are constantly engaged to protect and defend the image and reputation of the industry and to advance members’ interests. INFiN helps members interface with other financial service providers to build partnerships, to explore business opportunities, and to enhance the standing of non-bank financial service providers in the rapidly changing world of financial services.
In addition to advocacy support, INFiN members enjoy a wide variety of other benefits, including:
