Registration has opened for the Financial Services Expo in London.
FSE London will take place once again at Old Billingsgate in the heart of the City of London on Wednesday 14 September.
The exhibition space is close to capacity and will provide adviser visitors with access to over 70 exhibitors including lenders, distributors, networks, insurance providers and technology companies.
All seminar presentations at FSE London take place in one of two seminar theatres with the programmes put together by the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries (AMI) and media partners, Financial Reporter. The seminar sessions are CII-accredited and delegates can earn CPD hours.
Presentations will cover a wide range of topics, delivered by industry experts, including an ongoing analysis of how the political and economic ramifications of ‘Brexit’ are impacting on the UK economy as a whole, and specifically the mortgage and housing markets.
As well as the main seminar theatre, Shawbrook Bank will also be running its own Academy at FSE London, which will bring together experts from across the spectrum of specialist lending. The full list of seminar sessions at FSE London will be announced next month.
Also, for the first time, FSE London will play host to the Mortgage Advice Bureau (MAB) Academy Programme day.
This event is open to those interested in becoming an adviser, or those businesses who are considering growing their team through trainees, to provide them with quality information and guidance, plus insight from industry experts like MAB’s Verona Frankish who will offer expertise on how to get started and how to grow a successful team of advisers from scratch.
Verona Frankish, head of business development at MAB, said: “Over the last two and a half years, Mortgage Advice Bureau has developed our MAB Academy attracting fresh new talent into the mortgage industry and now we’ll be bringing a number of our presentations to FSE London in the form of our Academy Programme day.
“These sessions will provide lots of support to those individuals looking at their options within the mortgage advice sector and firms who want to attract new-blood to their business. We’ll be covering topics such as, ‘What makes a successful trainee adviser’ and ‘Creating your own trainee Academy’ so would urge anyone interested to please join us in September.”
Exhibitors attending FSE London include Lloyds Banking Group, Nationwide, RBS, Virgin Money, Aldermore, Kensington, New Street, One Savings Bank, Brightstar and many more.
James Prosser, managing director of Front Events, organisers of FSE London, said: “We are very pleased to announce that registration to attend FSE London in September is now open. Once again we will be aiming to put on the premier exhibition for advisers and the fact we are close to selling out all the exhibition space is testament to the popularity of the event and the incredible support we receive from the financial services industry.
“We are living and working through unprecedented times and it’s important that FSE London reflects that with the exhibition and, in particular, the range of seminar sessions we offer to attendees. Like most people, we all want to know how the ‘Brexit’ negotiations will impact on our sectors and therefore we want to ensure our sessions reflect expert views on what might be coming over the horizon for advisers and their clients. This will certainly be a key theme for FSE London this year.
“On top of that we’re able to offer advisers access to a range of exhibitors that are very keen to engage with the community and to outline how they can support their growth with quality products and services. As always, we have a strong roster of lender exhibitors as well as firms from across the whole, diversified range of the market. FSE London promises to be one of the highlights of the year for the financial services market and we very much hope you can join us at Old Billingsgate on the 14 September.”
