ASTL put conference date in diary

The conference will review the growth of the bridging and short-term lending market and the effect of outside factors such as European legislation and encroaching regulation.

The venue is larger than last year’s conference “Bridging Today and Tomorrow” which was over-subscribed, holding 200 rather than 150 people.

Benson Hersch, chief executive of the ASTL, saids, “The ASTL inaugural conference last year was a huge success so we have decided to make it an annual event.

“The 2014 annual conference will look at the challenges and opportunities facing people in the bridging market, it will address the issues facing lenders, advisers and professional suppliers and better equip them to face the year ahead.”

A speaker from the FCA and the fraud squad are already lined up.
