Master broker Clever Lending has launched three specialist finance forums to meet a growing demand it’s seen from brokers seeking help with complex cases.
There will be four leading specialist lenders holding sessions covering key topics in specialist lending and how it is becoming increasingly popular for providing solutions to a variety of complex case scenarios.
The lenders will each cover a different aspect of the specialist sector for the self-employed, commercial funding, bridging finance and second charges. Robert Sinclair, chief executive of the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries (AMI), will be a keynote speaker.
Paul Day, sales development director, Clever Lending said: “The specialist lending forums will help brokers create new opportunities and not only protect their businesses but help them to grow by highlighting the new types of case they could handle and solutions offered by specialist lending products.
“Technology plays a huge and growing part in our industry and presents threats and opportunities. Being aware of both is imperative. We will give an insight in to this too.
“Specialist lending is evolving into the mainstream for the modern mortgage adviser. Whether they’re looking to enter this lucrative sector or are already taking advantage and looking to develop further, these events are a must.”
Robert Sinclair said: “Specialist lending plays a very important role in our industry and one that all brokers should consider for complex borrowing requirements, even when it falls outside their normal client profile.
“If brokers are unfamiliar with this sector there is specialist help available and this is why events such as these by Clever Lending are so important in expanding knowledge further or exploring new solutions.”
The impact of technology on the mortgage market place presents both threats and opportunities, what the future could look like for mortgage advice and its importance for brokers will be covered by Mark Dryden of 360Dotnet.
The forums aim to help brokers to take their initial steps in to specialist lending or broaden the scope of the business they are capable of writing with the support of experts in this arena.
The three events are free for brokers to attend. They will start at 9:30, a free lunch will be provided. They will be held at Kempton Park on Wednesday 2 May, Belfry, West Midlands on Tuesday 15 May and at Haydock Park Race Couse on Tuesday 12 June.
