The Financial Intermediary & Broker Association (FIBA) has appointed former NACFB chief executive Adam Tyler to lead the trade body.
FIBA has emerged from the AOBP and hosts its inaugural annual conference on the 17th January in London.
The intention is to reach out and attract brokers, lenders and tertiary service providers involved in the specialist lending sector, who have seen the benefits of this association in the past but now want more support.
Tyler said: “I am delighted to be joining FIBA and look forward to working with the executive committee, its partners and members in making it the kind of successful body towards which lenders and intermediaries from all sectors of the lending market will want to gravitate.
“FIBA’s objectives emphasise the focus on individual broker membership, rather than firm membership. We have structured our options to engage with and benefit the intermediaries themselves, providing valuable resource at an affordable cost.”
Tyler added: “In summary, FIBA’s principal aim is to be a ‘broad church’ encompassing the whole of the market and, therefore, it looks forward to constructive dialogue with all stakeholders associated with the lending sector.
“My wish is to take the FIBA message to intermediaries and lenders across the finance sector and for FIBA to proactively represent all parts of the lending market.”
