Mortgage Brain’s 2015 series of Mortgage Vision events, held during October and November, saw a 23% rise in broker attendance, setting a new record in overall attendance in the event’s six year history.
Over 800 mortgage brokers attended one of the eight, free-to-attend events, with over 96% of attendees rating them as ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’ and over 98% saying they would recommend them to their peers.
The technology firm said the reality of the Mortgage Credit Directive (MCD) and the direct impact it will have on brokers took centre stage this year with headline speakers from the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries (AMI) and Nationwide/The Mortgage Works sharing what MCD will mean to brokers and the changes that lenders are making in light of the new rules.
Each event also featured expert views and exclusive round table discussions from Aldermore, Bright Grey, Clydesdale Bank, ConveyancingBrain, Fluent Money, Mortgage Brain, Nationwide/The Mortgage Works, Skipton Intermediaries and Santander for Intermediaries.
Robert Sinclair, AMI chief executive and headline speaker at this year’s events, said: “We were delighted to support this year’s Mortgage Vision events; like last year, the feedback and support we received from brokers was fantastic.
“The events presented the perfect platform to address the issues surrounding the introduction of MCD and with technology demonstrations from Mortgage Brain, as well as the headline speaker presentations, all aspects of MCD were covered.”
Mark Lofthouse, CEO of Mortgage Brain, added: “We’re absolutely delighted with the tremendous success of the Mortgage Vision events this year. Now in their sixth year, the events have gone from strength to strength and are considered by many to be the best and most informative mortgage events of the year.”
