The Consumer Finance Association is a trade association of non-bank lenders. It represents alternative consumer credit providers, especially short-term lenders providing loans of less than 12 months. Our aim is to create an alternative lending market that provides responsible access to credit.
Our members have been at the forefront of the emerging financial technological (FinTech) sector. All of our members are tightly regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and ensure customers are treated fairly.
We work closely with the UK government and regulators to represent our members views and raise issues impacting this industry. We carry out regular research and act as the voice of the industry at a wide variety of events.
