The Financial Intermediary & Broker Association (FIBA) has announced the latest series of interviews with its lender partners on FIBA TV, recorded during the lockdown.
The first two series were filmed with a professional videographer, while the latest has been captured on webcams at the homes of the interviewees and of FIBA executive chairman Adam Tyler (pictured).
The sessions aim to provide members with information from panel lenders, including their backgrounds, aims and the types of new business they are looking for.
From 2 July, members will be able to access the first of the interviews with Aspen Bridging.
This will be followed by Mike Davies, head of business development at YBS Commercial, talking to Tyler about the society’s commitment to the commercial and buy-to-let (BTL) sector along with its plans and aspirations in a post-COVID market.
Tyler said: “Obviously, webcam filming through Teams is hardly up to Hollywood standards, but we still wanted to be able to reach out to our members at this time.
“Since we launched FIBA TV last year, the interviews with senior lender personnel [have been] enthusiastically received by a wide cross section of our membership before the current COVID epidemic.
“During the current crisis, we had already successfully attracted over 1,000 advisers to attend our webinars in May and June and we felt it was important to provide another way, via FIBA TV, for members to be able to stay in touch with our Lender Partners and keep up to date.”
Tyler added: “So, look out for the launch of FIBA TV Series 3 ‘At Home’ on Thursday, which will start with YBS Commercial and Aspen Bridging and then the interviews with Precise Mortgages, Roma Finance, Landbay, LendInvest and Reward Finance being added over the coming weeks.”
Davies said: “Full marks to FIBA for arranging these interviews during the lockdown.
“The session with Adam has given us a valuable opportunity to reach FIBA members at a time when direct contact is, understandably, still restricted.
“It enabled me to put across our proposition and will hopefully give advisers some ideas as to how YBS can assist them and their customers during these challenging times.”
