For the second consecutive year Paradigm Mortgage Services will run its workshop to support those looking to become directly authorised (DA) by the regulator.
The half-day event will take place in Holborn, London on Tuesday 28 January.
Bob Hunt, chief executive of Paradigm Mortgage Services, said: “Last year we ran a very successful DA transition workshop in London and have committed to more during 2020 because of the feedback we received, and the large number of enquiries we’ve had from individuals looking at their options to move to DA status.
“We’ve found that those who attend often cite the workshop as a catalyst for them to begin preparations to become DA, and the sessions from senior Paradigm staff are all designed to provide practical information and support to allow them to progress in this aim, and to see the specific help that we can provide them with.
“These are big decisions, but a new year often presents a timely incentive to look at the options available and to review whether now is the right time to make a decision on changing regulatory authorisation.
“These events are held to help facilitate this and we’re looking forward to meeting advisers and firms in London on the 28th of this month.”
The workshop includes presentations from senior Paradigm staff providing insight into what is involved in the process, the requirements to secure DA status and the support that can be provided with the FCA application.
Presentations will be given by Hunt; Paradigm’s head of protection Mike Allison; mortgage technical director, Christine Newell, head of proposition, David Ryder and compliance partner, Graeme Stewart.
