The five half-day mortgage and protection events will provide delegates with the latest market analysis and help them identify practical opportunities for both them and their clients.

Speakers include Simon Chalk from Age Partnership and the Equity Release Council; Martin Reynolds from SimplyBiz mortgages, talking about the current and future impact of regulation on intermediaries; and Ray Boulger from John Charcol, with a comprehensive mortgage market update.

In addition, Aldermore will give an overview of the buy-to-let market.

F&TRC will outline the respective added value benefits from different providers and what advisers need to consider within their protection recommendations.

And Zurich will identify the key considerations when managing mortgage risk.

Gary Little, head of operations and membership at SMP, said: “As well as examining the state of the current market, we aim to highlight the potential of alternative areas where advisers may not have been active recently and that may offer them new business opportunities.” C

Each event is free to attend and offers up to three hours and 35 minutes of structured CPD.

The full schedule is as follows:

22 September – Stormont Hotel, Belfast

29 September – Cedar Court, Wakefield
