Was established in 1914 under the name of International Union of Building Societies & Savings and Loan Associations. During its nearly 100 years, the IUHF has developed into a worldwide network comprising organisations, institutions and persons specialised in housing finance. Its members range from national banking associations and mortgage lending institutions to independent consultants, academics, government agencies and international institutions.
The Union aims to facilitate global contact among member organisations and to be a source of international leadership in housing finance, to promote the exchange of knowledge amongst members throughout the world and to serve as a recognised primary source of information on international housing finance. The Union also aims to promote and facilitate the development of housing finance systems in developing countries and to encourage cooperation between the public and private sectors in the housing and housing finance sectors.
