MFA Delivers Value


In addition to six global conferences, MFA offers Members access to year-round operational, legal, and compliance training as well as an unparalleled global peer-to-peer network. MFA’s quarterly forums give Members the unique opportunity to meet in small working groups by function to collaborate on industry best practices, anticipate business risks, and expand their peer network.


MFA also engages with the industry’s top stakeholders (including primes, legal, and accounting firms) to offer members in-depth seminars on new rules and regulations affecting the industry. These forums and seminars are coveted educational and networking opportunities for MFA Members. In addition, many of these seminars feature engagement with the broader allocator community with whom we work closely on an array of policy and operational issues.

On-the-Ground Advocacy


MFA's advocacy is dictated by our members, who collectively develop MFA's policy priorities through our robust committee process. Although MFA's membership base is comprised of large, medium and small firms, everyone's voice is heard. MFA's policy committees are Tax; Trading and Markets; Derivatives and Swaps; International Affairs; Investment Adviser; CTA, CPO and Futures; and Communications.  


With the guidance of membership, we work directly with policymakers and stakeholders in the U.S., U.K, EU and around the world to promote public policy that fosters fair, efficient and transparent capital markets

MFA Staff and members are in the room from the beginning — when policymakers are writing laws and regulators are implementing them — giving our Association not only a working knowledge of the final result but insight as to why it got there. That unique perspective allows MFA to help members with the vast implementation challenges impacting their businesses. 


Members also have a direct line to MFA staff for breaking analysis and insight into legislative and regulatory developments.
