The ITFA is committed to developing high quality education for its members.

It aims to raise industry standards by organising seminars/workshops for newcomers as well as experienced members and non-members, and to provide information on education available in the market for related activities (and trade finance in general). In addition to this role, it co-ordinates and facilitates education in association with other organisations such as Colleges and Universities.

A further role of the ITFA is to provide information – it organises and issues general information on particular areas of interest such as Emerging Market Research and the creation/presentation of statistics.
