In the interest of members and the broader financial sector AFMA maintains a fundamental role in the efficient operation and ongoing development of domestic financial markets.
Financial Markets Members
Our Financial Markets Members are the organisations that participate directly in Australia's financial markets and generally hold an Australian Financial Services Licence.
Financial Markets Members can vote at annual general meetings and provide input by sitting on our various committees. We support these members by:
- Advocating policy that secures business benefits and efficiencies;
- Providing industry-specific intelligence;
- Developing and maintaining market conventions and procedures;
- Providing accreditation programs and continuing professional development; and
- Enabling access to market data and documentation products.
Our Partner Members are organisations that provide services to participants in Australia's financial markets – such as legal, accounting, technology and risk management services.
Through their membership, service providers may be better placed to forge closer links with participants in financial markets and foster new business opportunities.
Our Affiliate membership consists of government agencies and international associations. These members are invited to join AFMA in recognition of the role they play within the financial markets.
