Pink is holding a series of business development conferences around the country this month and is concentrating on building relationships between advisers, lenders and protection providers.
The conferences will also include ‘business quality’ advice from lender partners and details of how advisers can secure more mortgage business with increased client support.
Lenders will also cover key aspects of their products and services. Abbey, Coventry Intermediaries and NatWest will have the lead roles at this quarter’s event.
Meanwhile, on the protection front, Paymentshield will introduce its new panel proposition which includes an enhanced product, while LV= will be using the conferences to launch the addition of its Mortgage and Lifestyle Protection Plan, Whole of Life and Family Income Benefit plans.
The conferences will include round table sessions from both lenders and protection providers, plus presentations from Pink’s compliance team on the latest ways to keep adviser businesses safe from fraud.
Pink stresses that the events continue to evolve in response to adviser feedback and so the agenda is dictated by what the members want.
Mark Graves, head of Pink Network, said: “Adviser feedback is vital to keep the roadshows fresh and informative. We have a “one new idea” philosophy – if an adviser goes away with one new idea then the event is worthwhile. The business conferences are also an ideal format to launch new products, and discuss sales ideas to make the most of any new sales opportunities.
“Fraud continues to plague our industry; in an ever changing market it is important that we all work together to a common goal. By bringing lenders and advisers together in an environment that benefits both, we are going a long way to achieving this objective.”
