History and Background The history of this Association dates back some years since its formation in 1965 with a current membership of ...... members representing the finance, credit, leasing, new and used car companies and motor cycle companies. The Association is managed by an elected Council and monthly meetings are held to conduct the affairs of the Association. To ensure an effective management six Committees are established namely the Consumer Affairs, Development, Public Relations and Technical to deal promptly with specific problems. We have also set up Regional Committees in Sabah and Sarawak to cater to the needs of our East Malaysian members. In furtherance of the interest of the industry and to alleviate possibility of multiple financing transactions, the Association in 1986, jointly with Association of Finance Companies of Malaysia set up a computer service bureau, M/s Financial Information Services Sdn Bhd (FIS) to undertake registration of vehicles and equipment financed by member companies of both Associations on Hire Purchase, leasing and Block Discounting. Today over 4,000,000 records on vehicles equipment, hirers, lessees and guarantors are stored on the master file of FIS Vehicle and Equipment Registry, which is constantly up-dated with records on stolen vehicles obtained from the Police and vehicles and equipment detained by the Customs.
