The Financial Services Expo (FSE) London seminar programme will cover three theatres.
On both days there will be sessions in the AMI theatre from representatives of the FCA; on day one this will cover what the mortgage market environment will look like post-Mortgage Credit Directive (MCD) and on day two there will be a look at the current state of play in the mortgage market and the challenges and opportunities that might arise going forward.
On the first day one there will also be an ‘expert’ view from Stefano Silvestrin of the Nationwide Building Society on the UK economy, housing and mortgage market, plus a discussion on the future of mortgage transactions through the lens of emerging technology featuring Mark Lofthouse of Mortgage Brain.
On day two there will be an expert panel debate featuring Ian Andrew (Nationwide), Louisa Sedgewick (Leeds), Alan Cleary (Precise), Dean Mirfin (Key Retirement), and Pat Bunton (London & Country). Plus there will be the session from former England rugby coach Sir Clive Woodward.
In addition, delegates can also visit the Shawbrook Bank Academy which runs across both days and offers 14 sessions from a number of lender, packager and distributor players as well as Shawbrook staff covering areas such as commercial, second-charge, residential lending and technology.
FSE London is once again being held at Old Billingsgate (pictured) in the City of London on 16-17 September.
James Prosser, director of Front Events, the event’s organisers, said: “This is without doubt the most comprehensive series of seminar sessions we have ever put on at FSE London and delegates have a plethora of speakers and topics to choose from across both days of the exhibition.
:We open our doors to advisers at a crucial time for the mortgage market, not least because of the impending changes that MCD will herald but also because of the way the market continues to move in advisers’ favours. This means that, while there will undoubtedly be challenges to overcome, there are also plenty of opportunities to explore.
““On top of all these seminar sessions we have our exhibitors, who number over 70, and cover a swathe of businesses all looking to secure intermediary business or to support their endeavours. These cover lenders, distributors, packagers, technology companies, legal services, and much more. “
