The three main trade associations that protect and lobby for the interests of the bridging industry are as follows.
Click on the logos below for the latest from each association:
The National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB)
The Association of Short Term Lenders (ASTL)
The ASTL was established in the days before the FSA, when the short-term lending market had yet to form an organisation to lobby on its behalf. It is now made up of over 20 bridging lenders, giving a voice to the industry and promoting its interests.
The Association of Bridging Professionals (AOBP)
Founded in late 2010, the AOBP represents intermediaries, master brokers and affiliated individuals within the bridging finance industry. It aims to uphold standards, promote transparency and provide a non-competitive forum for discussion.
