SimplyBiz Mortgages has announced an inaugural ‘Seasonal Showcase’ event taking place on 9 December.
It completes a calendar of over 70 meetings held by the mortgage club during 2015 and will take place at the Holiday Inn, Borehamwood.
It will be open to both members and non-members of the SimplyBiz Group.
The showcase will feature an exhibition of over 30 lenders and providers in addition to a number of seasonal stalls and Woolwich’s ‘Digital Wall’, offering attendees an opportunity to test their speed and knowledge. A series of seminars will also be taking place, covering subjects including:
- Buy-to-let and the tax change challenge
- Secured loans post MCD
- Understanding ‘The Unplaceables’
- GI – It’s the Glue
Martin Reynolds, CEO of SimplyBiz Mortgages, said: “It has been a busy year for us, with over 70 events already having taken place, but we wanted to bring something slightly new to the market, that had a bit of fun involved and that was open to all.
“The theme for the day is ‘clear your desk and open your mind’. We want advisers to challenge the lenders and providers in attendance with all their difficult cases and encourage the industry to clear all of our desks by Christmas. Additionally, the seminars have been designed for advisers to be able to plan for some of the changes and challenges that lie ahead during 2016 and quiz senior staff from lenders on the market. All the seminars will carry CPD.”
Roger Morris, director of sales at Precise Mortgages, added: “With new taxation rules coming into play next year and a constantly evolving mortgage market, advisers are keen to get ahead of the competition. We are looking forward to assisting advisers at this market-leading event and helping prepare the industry for 2016.”
