Midwest Chapter


Welcome to the CFA Midwest Chapter

The CFA Midwest Chapter is the trade group for commercial finance companies, factors, banks and other financing agencies engaged in the asset-based financial services industry of Chicago and the Midwest region. We are a Regional Chapter of the Commercial Finance Association which serves the asset-based financial services industry on an international, national, regional and local basis.


The CFA Midwest Chapter is a leading lender-based networking organization in the Chicago metro area. Our roots are in asset-based lending, but we strive to attract all parties involved in a secured lending transaction. Our goal is to provide the best networking forum for lenders and service providers, including consultants, attorneys, appraisers and accountants.
