Paradigm Mortgage Services’ fifth mortgage round table event of the year will be held next month in Bolton.
The round table offers both members and non-members of the the mortgage services proposition an update on the preparations they should be making for the implementation of the Mortgage Market Review (MMR) next April and will help show advisers how they can remain compliant.
Christine Newell, Paradigm Partnership Manager, will be briefing attendees on the move to MMR and offering guidance on where firms should be with their plans.
The round table takes place on Wednesday 23 October at the USN Bolton Arena, Arena Approach, Horwich, Bolton BL6 6LB.
As with previous round tables the event will not only focus on the regulatory landscape but also provide information and support on potential new business opportunities available in the current marketplace.
The half-day event also offers attendees the chance to hear from John Coffield, head of Paradigm Mortgage Services, about the current mortgage market and the services Paradigm provides, as well as a number of other lenders and providers who will focus on how they can help advisers improve their business levels in the months ahead.
The day begins with registration and coffee from 9.30am and there will be presentations and discussion with representatives from Ageas, Aldermore, Exeter Friendly, Nationwide/The Mortgage Works, PruProtect and Virgin Money.
All attendees can earn CPD points by attending.
Bob Hunt, chief executive of Paradigm Mortgage Services, said: “There are plenty of positive noises around at present, particularly from the mortgage and housing markets which appear to be picking up after a number of years bumping along the bottom. Our round table event offers all attendees the chance to hear Paradigm’s view on today’s market and how it might develop, and to also learn about a number of ongoing opportunities that could be tapped into.
“The major focus however is the MMR; we are just seven months away from its implementation and while the onus falls predominantly on lenders there are still a number of responsibilities and actions that advisers must fulfil. We are keen for all advisers to be up to speed with the MMR and to have a plan in place to follow over the months ahead; this is why the event is open to all. The speakers at this event will offer insight and analysis into an ever-changing marketplace and help ensure that advisers are not just up to speed with the regulator but also benefiting from a marketplace which appears to be moving upward.
“We therefore look forward to welcoming the advisory community to Bolton next month to hear about the market’s potential going forward in what are exciting times.”
