IFA Mission

The International Factoring Association's (IFA) goal is to assist the Factoring community by providing information, training, purchasing power and a resource for the Factoring community.
Founded in 1999, the International Factoring Association provides a way for Commercial Factors to get together and discuss a variety of issues and concerns in the industry. By working together, Commercial Factors have an easy way to disseminate information and have a single voice in the marketplace. Association members also have group buying power in negotiating for goods and services.
