The Structured Finance Industry Group has 55 members and counting. The new trade organization’s website now has a link listing all the firms that have joined the group.
The list is going to be updated regularly. Having started only last month, the trade group has an interim board as it gets up and running, according to a spokesman. Once it has moved past this phase a permanent board will be elected.
In what many in the industry took as a direct challenge to the American Securitization Forum, the SFIG scheduled its first conference for January 22-24 2014 in Las Vegas, only days before the ASF holds its annual powwow in Vegas.
The SFIG was started by a group of ASF defectors mid last month.
