The first 2010 forum will take place at the Grainger plc offices, Elm House, Edgbaston Park, 351 Bristol Road, Birmingham, B5 7SW on Wednesday 20 January. The Forum begins at 10.30am and will finish at 12.30pm – free parking is provided and all attendees will be provided with lunch.
Now in their third year, Bridgewater’s Broker Forums provide advisers and intermediaries with an opportunity to discuss informally the ongoing issues and debates which are happening in the equity release market. Topics which have been discussed at previous forums include: marketing providers in the market maximising professional connections challenging the perceptions of equity release the equity release process from start to completion the potential uses and market opportunities for equity release plus fees and commission and the impact of the RDR on the sector.
Attendees may already be involved in providing advice in the sector or they may be looking to provide services in this area. Bridgewater representatives host the event and are able to provide a range of information and tangible support to those that attend.
Peter Welch, head of sales and distribution at Bridgewater Equity Release, said: “We begin 2010 as we ended 2009 with a continuation of our well-received Bridgewater Broker Forums. Our first stop in the New Year will be Birmingham and we are confident there will be many advisers and intermediaries in the Midlands who would get great value out of attending the meeting. While we always have parameters for the meeting
