The industry also used the occasion to pay tribute to mortgage legend Pete Thomson.
There were some kind words from Jason Berry, director of sales at Uinsure and Peter Izard, business development manager at Investec Private Bank, blew a whistle to signal the audience to stand up and applaud in remembrance.
The charity for the event was Mortgage Sleep Out, with many in the industry such as Assetz Capital and Barclays participating this Friday 30.
