Who We Are

The American Securitization Forum (ASF) is the securitization industry’s unifying forum, to enhance and improve the securitization market.  Our membership encompasses all aspects of the industry, including issuers, investors, financial intermediaries, rating agencies, legal and accounting firms, trustees, servicers, guarantors, and other market participants.

Our principal goals are:

  1. Consensus. To build consensus within the U.S. securitization industry on issues material to the industry;
  2. Advocacy. To mount focused efforts to advance the ASF’s substantive positions, chiefly by interacting with appropriate governmental, regulatory, legislative and other policy making bodies; and
  3. Education. To inform and educate the securitization community and the broader populace by sponsoring substantive, high-quality conferences and educational programs.
