Senior Credit Management Forum (SMF)


The Senior Credit Management Forum (SMF) has been the leading peer group for senior finance & credit managers since 2006. It provides a unique community for members to meet, network and learn. The aim is to equip members with the practical strategies they need to meet the challenges of a changing business environment, and add value to their roles.

The objectives of the Senior Management Forum are to:

  • share experiences and draw on each others’ knowledge
  • develop and enhance best and new practice in credit and risk management
  • improve skill levels
  • provide access to a network of like-minded professionals and relevant industry experts.
