Mortgage Business Expo (MBE) has announced a joint seminar programme with Aldermore at the Bristol Expo on 6 July at Ashton Gate.
All seminars, including those by Aldermore, will be Cll CPD accredited.
Aldermore will have its own theatre at Bristol and its talks will complement the topical seminar programme already organised by MBE.
The Aldermore seminars include industry status updates and key point discussions by Craig Hall, new build manager of L&G, David Golder, client proposition director at the SimplyBiz Group and managing director of the Consumer Credit Centre and Ian Boden, head of commercial mortgages and portfolio management at Aldermore.
There will also be a lunchtime lender panel discussion for brokers to discover more about commercial, business and development finance, featuring industry figures from the specialist and traditional lending sectors, followed by a buffet and drinks reception.
Charles Haresnape (pictured), group managing director for mortgages at Aldermore, said: “We are delighted to be part of this important event, and the first of its kind in Bristol. IFAs and brokers will have an opportunity to hear the latest industry thinking and discuss the lending issues concerning them and their clients.
“Aldermore is committed to meeting the needs of mortgage professionals and their clients with reliable, expert, dynamic and straightforward advice and service, supporting a strong and healthy housing market in the UK.”
MBE will also have its own programme of seminars covering topics such as the changing face of specialist lending, the current state of the mortgage market, finance for the self-employed and lending into retirement.
Keynote speakers include Joe Heayes of the Nationwide, David Whittaker of Mortgages for Business and Alain Desmier of E-Finity Leads.
Registration for the Bristol Expo is now open and free for brokers and IFAs who will have the opportunity to directly discuss the finance and planning needs of their clients with building societies, specialist lenders, retirement planning providers and industry bodies such as the FCA and the Society of Mortgage Professionals.
Mike Mikunda from MBE added: “We are excited to announce that all seminars will now be Cll CPD accredited. We have an extensive and topical seminar programme that covers the most relevant subjects in the market right now. As well as our own full seminar programme we will also have a series of presentations hosted by Aldermore covering a range of important subjects.
“The new event in Bristol is an exciting addition the finance calendar and will appeal to mortgage brokers, finance introducers and IFAs in the South West, as it is well connected to places such as Bath, Reading, Cheltenham, Exeter, Bournemouth and Southampton. Bristol and its neighbouring towns and cities have a thriving financial and business community and with Bristol itself being one of the fastest growing and most affluent cities in the UK, it is expected to grow faster than the national average over the next decade.”
