What's in it for you?
1. For FINANCE BROKERS. Initially ASTLA was designed to be an association just for short term business lenders, however we have received an enormous amount of feedback and support from brokers. So it was decided by the ASTLA Board back in March 2011 to allow a special Membership level for Finance Brokers... known as an Associate Member.

3. For BORROWERS. Borrowing from private funders can sometimes be a little 'hit and miss' and potentially dangerous. There are so many to choose from, and quite often they can be finance brokers in disguise. By choosing an ASTLA member, you can proceed with the confidence of knowing that the entity you are dealing with is in fact a genuine lender, and will abide by the ASTLA Code of Conduct.
