Why become a Member?

If you are new to commercial finance and commercial broking, becoming a member of the NACFB can help you on your way. We are here to offer advice and support during the early stages.

If you are an established broker we can offer you networking opportunities with like-minded members of the industry, help and support with compliance issues through NACFB Compliance competitive professional indemnity insurance, training and development to help with CPD, and access to multiple lender Patrons.

Membership types

This is for established Brokers, who can provide offers of loans, and lender references. Full Members have the right to display the NACFB logo – a nationally recognised kite-mark, to feature on our lead generation platform and to vote at our AGM.

Brokers starting to trade should join us as an Associate Member, with a view to upgrade their membership to Full Member within 6 to 12 months of joining.

Membership criteria

A CV and ID photocard driving license or passport and proof of address for each broker in the firm, who wishes to join (referred to as Registered Individuals or RI).

Three offers of loan, from different lenders – these must be commercial. Not required for Associate Membership.

Two lender references including contact name, email address and phone number – so that we can obtain the reference as quickly as possible. Not required for Associate Membership.
