The FCA will be providing its first update to the industry on its Mortgage Market Study at this year’s Financial Services Expo (FSE) Manchester, taking place next week.

It’s being held once again this week at The Emirates – Old Trafford at the Lancashire County Cricket Club on Wednesday 16 May.

Graeme McLean (head of banking, lending & distribution policy) and Matthew Ward (manager, wholesale and investments competition) at the regulator will be addressing delegates and answering questions at FSE Manchester.

James Prosser, managing director of Front Events, organisers of FSE Manchester, said: “The addition of this seminar session – to be delivered by representatives from the regulator on the Mortgages Market Study – is a real coup for the event, and provides another reason to visit FSE Manchester next week.

“The study’s Interim Report provides plenty of measures and proposals which are likely to have a significant impact on the mortgage broker market, and therefore it’s only right and proper that the regulator comes to FSE to discuss this further and to take questions from our audience.”

“This study could potentially pave the way for some game-changing developments in the mortgage advisory space, and it’s important that our delegates understand what the FCA is seeking to do, and to give the regulator their views on whether any measures that come out of the Study are likely to herald either threats or opportunities.”

There will be a series of educational seminar sessions for advisers focusing at areas of regulatory and business change – a later life lending panel debate, life outsidet he M25 residential panel debate and a buy-to-let panel debate.

There are three presentations taking place within the Academy: buy-to-let regulatory changes with Scott Phillips from Kent Reliance for Intermediaries, taking notice of GDPR, with Suzane Chadwick from Sesame and opportunities for professional landlrods to diversify their portfolios with Marc Turner (Interbay Commercial).
