PMS Mortgage Club and Sesame Network are to host a new range of specialist mortgage events for advisers at 11 venues across the UK over the next two months.
The sessions are being supported by 48 lenders and will help advisers to explore and understand the latest innovations in the specialist market, along with new trends and developments in 2020. These range from the diversification of buy-to-let through to bridging finance and the continued growth of later life lending.
Stephanie Charman, specialist lending relationship manager at Sesame and PMS, said: “As people’s lives and lifestyles become ever more complex, specialist lending is becoming the new mainstream, with a plethora of new lenders and innovative solutions coming to market to cater for this increasing consumer demand.
“In the last 18 months PMS and Sesame have added 10 new specialist lenders to its panels, and will add a similar number again in 2020. This all adds up to a lot of information and knowledge for advisers to digest, which is why our latest round of events are so timely.
“The good news is that the specialist market is primed for professional advice given the need for manual underwriting and intervention. It’s an opportunity for advisers to demonstrate their expertise and play to their strengths.
“PMS and Sesame are committed to giving advisers access to a market-leading package combining the leading specialist lenders backed-up with in-depth technical training and development support.”
Steve Seal, managing director at Bluestone Mortgages, added: “Support and guidance for advisers in this market is key, which is why it’s great to see PMS and Sesame coming together to launch a series of events dedicated to educating brokers on specialist lending.
“There’s an array of opportunities out there, particularly as segments of underserved borrowers continue to grow, and it will be vital that brokers know how to capitalise on these. That’s why events which allow advisers to gain frontline insight into the market are invaluable.
“They not only enable advisers to learn more about the tailored lending solutions that are available, but also help them to bolster their business.”
