FSE Manchester will be held once again at The Emirates – Old Trafford, overlooking the pitch at the Lancashire County Cricket Club on Wednesday 16 May.

It will provide visitors with access to over 50 exhibitors including lenders, distributors, networks, insurance providers, technology companies, and many more.

There will be debates on later life lending, GDPR, buy-to-let and residential opportunities outside the M25.

James Prosser, managing director of Front Events, organisers of FSE Manchester, said: “In three weeks we’ll be back at The Emirates – Old Trafford, celebrating the fifth FSE Manchester, after its launch back in 2014.

“Since then we’ve welcomed thousands of advisers to the show and we are once again looking forward to bringing all parts of the financial services community back together on the 16 May.

“Once again we’ve put together a strong seminar roster, with a particular focus on specialist lending areas such as later life, equity release and buy-to-let, but also looking at the residential market that exists in the North and how advisers can make the most of the opportunities there, particularly in sectors such as remortgaging, first-time buyers and the growth in portfolio/professional landlord purchasing.

“We have a number of lender experts in their field who will be imparting their knowledge to our delegates.”

There will be a later life lending panel debate chaired by David Burrows of the Equity Release Council, featuring Dean Mirfin (Key Retirement), Steve Cox (Hodge Lifetime), Gary Webster (Equity Release Partners) and Paul Carter (Pure Retirement).

The GDPR will feature Suzanne Chadwick, adviser learning development manager at Sesame who has led on the firm’s GDPR project.

Charles McDowell (Aldermore), Richard Tugwell (Together), Dave Rogers (Barclays) and Ian Andrew (Nationwide Building Society), will discuss opportunities for residential lending outside M25.

David Whittaker (Mortgages for Business) and Adrian Moloney (One Savings Bank) will talk about the changes taking place in the buy-to-let sector and how advisers can support their clients.

Exhibitors attending FSE Manchester include: Barclays, In Partnership, Metro Bank, Mortgage Advice Bureau, One Savings Bank, Paradigm Mortgage Services and Vida Homeloans.

FSE Manchester provides a range of networking opportunities for all attendees, plus they can earn CPD hours whilst enhancing their advice proposition.

Prosser added: “We also look at the importance of GDPR to advisers and how they can make sure these regulations are embedded in their business, that they understand their responsibilities when it comes to client contact and marketing, and that they’re ready for the 25th May implementation date.

“FSE Manchester once again promises to be a very fruitful and rewarding day for all those advisers who attend, and with over 50 exhibitors on hand, they can not only learn from our seminar sessions but also network with all those representatives, who cover a wide range of businesses and sectors.

“We’re looking forward to seeing everyone in Manchester next month, and if you’re yet to register to attend, you can find all the details on our website.”
