The Association of Finance Brokers (AFB) is the trade association that represents intermediaries operating in the secured loan (second charge mortgages over residential properties) industry. The AFB represents brokers who are responsible for approximately 75% by volume and value of secured loans in the intermediary channel. Membership of the AFB is voluntary and on a corporate or individual basis.
AFB was established to promote the views of secured loans brokers operating in the UK and focuses on lobbying delegates in FCA and HM Treasury. In doing so, it aims to promote the interests of the industry in a constructive way that connects regulators and lawmakers with the “front line” of the secured loans market.
