Invaluable Connections

The International Factoring Association's (IFA) goal is to assist the Factoring community by providing information, training, purchasing power, and as a resource for the Factoring community.

 
 

About Us

In December of 2020, the International Factoring Association, the largest association of commercial finance companies in the world, launched its SoCal Chapter. This Chapter was formed to assist industry firms by providing additional training and networking opportunities at a local level. 

The Chapter serves factors, asset-based lenders, other receivables finance companies, purchase order companies as well as service providers from Southern California, Arizona, and Nevada.

Our Mission

The SoCal Chapter of IFA was formed with a vision of providing educational workshops, seminars, and events to our region which address and meet the current needs and future growth of factoring companies and trade finance companies in the Southeastern areas of California, Arizona, and Nevada; that are of the quality our business finance professionals have come to expect from the IFA.
