The fallout from the pandemic has created a wealth of opportunities for brokers, according to the latest Power of 8 lender cooperative event.

The event was hosted by Nadine Edwards of Accord Mortgages, and focused on how brokers can make the most of the market to grow their business and get the best outcomes for their clients.

Presentations were given by Hattie Tales of Pure Retirement and Grace Teager from Mortgage Brain, and brokers heard how LinkedIn can become an additional channel to connect with potential customers and introducers during the current restrictions.

The webinar also provided industry insight and analysis into what brokers and their clients are searching for.

Brokers also heard how the profile of the self-employed is changing, according to Eloise Hall of Kensington Mortgages, who shared how the market is seeing more 16 to 24-year-olds classed as self-employed than ever before.

The Power of 8 is a collaboration of lenders – Mansfield Building Society, Pure Retirement, Principality Building Society, Pepper Money, Foundation Home Loans, Kensington Mortgages, Hinckley & Rugby Building Society and Accord Mortgages – that gives brokers across the country the opportunity to connect and discuss the changing needs of the intermediary market.

Nadine Edwards, corporate account manager at Accord Mortgages and founding member of the Power of 8, said: “Brokers need insight and lender support more than ever during the current circumstances and we’re really pleased the Power of 8 webinars continue to be heavily subscribed and add value to advisers.

“We can’t wait to get back to hosting physical events, but while that’s not possible, as lenders we’ll continue to work together to deliver insight that matters to brokers, wherever they are.”
