Institute of International Finance Logo

The Institute of International Finance, Inc. (IIF), is the world’s only global association of financial institutions. Created in 1983 in response to the international debt crisis, the IIF has evolved to meet the changing needs of the financial community. Members include most of the world’s largest commercial banks and investment banks, as well as a growing number of insurance companies and investment management firms.


Among the Institute’s Associate members are multinational corporations, trading companies, export credit agencies, and multilateral agencies. Approximately half of the Institute’s members are European-based financial institutions, and representation from the leading financial institutions in emerging market countries is also increasing steadily. Today the Institute has more than 400 members headquartered in more than 70 countries. The Institute of International Finance is committed to being the most influential global association of financial institutions.

IIF strive to sustain and enhance the distinctive role on the basis of the professional excellence of the research, the unmatched breadth of  the membership, the extensive relationships with policymakers and regulators, and the strength of the governance.

In fulfilling this mission, the IIF’s main activities are to:

 • Provide high-quality, timely, and impartial analysis and research to the members on emerging markets and other central issues in global finance.

 • Systematically identify, analyze, and shape regulatory, financial, and economic policy issues of relevance to the members globally or regionally.
