The Secured Finance Network strives to be the essential community for all organizations and professionals who deliver and enable secured finance. With nearly 300 member companies and a 20,000-person active community including 22 chapters located throughout the United States, Canada and Europe, we continue to broaden our reach and impact. We further engage the international community through our active work with the United Nations and World Bank.
