Mortgage Business Expo (MBE) Leeds is now open for brokers, IFAs and financial intermediaries to register for the event on 25 April at the Royal Armouries.
CPD accredited seminars will also feature keynote speeches by William Holman of the Bank of England, Roger Evans of Aldermore and Charles Haresnape of Gatehouse Bank. They will deliver insights into the economic outlook and the opportunities for financial intermediaries and lenders. Charles Haresnape will be discussing the demand for Shariah finance.
The Expo will also feature two panel debates with market-leading experts and influencers – a specialist lending discussion and a fintech panel on open banking and GDPR.
Mike Mikunda, from MBE, said: “We are delighted to be returning to Leeds for another Expo in Yorkshire as there are so many bridging and commercial lenders servicing the region and supplying much-needed property and development funding to the thriving broker and IFA market.
“We are delighted to have high profile speakers from the Bank of England and the newly-formed FIBA providing market insights. The Expo is gearing up to be another terrific event.
“With a strong finance community in Yorkshire, it will be beneficial for brokers, IFAs and introducers to talk directly with specialist lenders and service providers about their latest products. It’s going to be a very well attended Expo and I would encourage those in the region involved in finance to register for free now.”
Aldermore will be the official MBE Knowledge Partner and Bath Building Society the official sponsor.
Other companies such as Together Money, Masthaven, Clever Lending, 360 Dotnet, Vida Homeloans, Pepper Money and other major financial companies are lined up to exhibit at the event.
Registration for visitors is free and they will have the opportunity to directly discuss the finance and planning needs for their clients with building societies, specialist lenders. They can also discuss with retirement planning providers and industry bodies such as the Financial Intermediary and Brokers Association (FIBA) and the Society of Mortgage Professionals.
