What are AF-PA Vision and Aims?
AF-PA was formed to support Asset Finance & Leasing industry and those professionals who work within it. The AF-PA vision is to give back (through our time, our experience, our thought leadership) to all Asset Finance professionals, local communities and good causes.
The association’s aims are:
To promote the highest professional standards and sharing of best practices within the Asset Finance & Leasing markets.
We help create business development opportunities through a series of charity network events for individuals which facilitate introductions and assist participants to succeed in their careers whilst having fun!
To highlight and raise funds for local charitable causes.
What are our Values?
The highest levels of integrity in everything we do.
Deliver a great AF-PA experience… every time.
Every person counts - supporting everyone to maximise their potential.
To give back - both in community involvement and through our charitable donations.
Who is AF-PA for?
The Association is open to all Asset Finance industry individuals (it is not for corporate or organisational membership). Our members have different working roles and titles. They come mainly from the banking, lessor, brokering, captives, funders and service organisations within the Asset Finance & Leasing arena. There is no political agenda and AF-PA prides itself on its open approach.
How does it work in practice?
Our members can be approached for mentoring and coaching activity at any time. AF-PA also arranges networking opportunities, social fund raising events, sporting events and formal dinners. The funds that are raised are donated to smaller local charities where we can make a real difference.
Over £110,000 raised so far

What Our Members Say
“ I was introduced to the AF-PA by a colleague in 2014 after attending one of their Networking event. I immediately identified the benefits this membership would bring to my business. The AF-PA encompasses an eclectic mix of members from different sectors with good synergy including Banking, Leasing, Funding, Legal, Finance Brokers and service provider organisations. VitrX soon became a proud sponsor and have benefited from a wealth of business relationships, business wins and new friends. In 2017 I was invited to become a board member to help drive the association forward, which I proudly advocate.
