SFIG strives to educate members and legislators, advocate for its members, and support a liquid securitization market. One of the ways it achieves its goals is through the annual SFIG Conference. During the three-day event, more than 6,700 industry participants attended the event and had an opportunity to listen to keynote speakers. These speakers included chairman of the NAHREP Foundation Gerald “Jerry” Ascencio, executive chairman of The Chertoff Group Michael Chertoff, and former Congressman Joe Scarborough. Those in attendance included accountants, underwriters, consultants, analysts, and regulators.
The conference also offered breakout sessions, networking opportunities, and welcoming receptions. Attendees had a chance to garner continuing legal education credits for the state of Nevada on behalf of the Information Management Network.
