Benefits of Membership
Membership of CAFBA means you are one of the most highly regarded equipment finance brokers in Australia by both financiers and your peers.
Lenders are becoming more stringent in their requirements with some accrediting only those brokers who are members of a peak industry body. Our Affiliate Members (Lenders) actively encourage equipment finance brokers to be a member of CAFBA as they are secure in the knowledge CAFBA members have complied with very rigid criteria to become members.
Belonging to the peak industry body for equipment finance brokers confirms you adhere to an industry code of practice which sets high professional and ethical standards for members. It demonstrates your integrity, commitment to professionalism and ongoing professional development – qualities your clients look for.
Being a CAFBA member, grants you access to our competitively priced Professional Indemnity Insurance, professional development courses relative to the equipment finance industry, invitations to our annual golf days held in Victoria and New South Wales, invitations to functions at no cost to you and the opportunity to network with your peers.
CAFBA members can be ‘searched’ from the website with member firms benefitting from their own web page. Regular informative bulletins are emailed to members keeping them updated on current issues and member requirements such as CPD hours and education standards. Members are supplied with a ‘log in’ and ‘password’ to the Members Only area, which contains helpful and industry specific information not available to the general public.
All Associate Members are able to cast their vote for the prestigious Financier of the Year Award and are invited to the function to celebrate with their peers and CAFBA Affiliate Members.
CAFBA remains committed to improvement via a collaborative and unified approach with members.
