Clever Lending and Source to host NI masterclasses

Master broker Clever Lending has joined forces with Source Insurance to provide a series of GI Masterclass Roadshows in Northern Ireland. Clever Lending has also arranged for several lenders to participate in the Roadshows – specialist lenders Evolution Money and Central Trust, with the latter launching a new buy to let product to coincide with the events.

The masterclasses will help and inform introducers to maximise every insurance and finance opportunity, an update on the latest technology available and an opportunity to meet some key providers serving the lending market in Northern Ireland.

With the CML recently reporting that mortgage lending was 18% up in Q3 in Northern Ireland, the third such increase in a row, there is clearly an appetite to better serve the thriving mortgage, second charge and specialist lending markets and open up new opportunities for active brokers looking to grow and develop their businesses.

The roadshows are free and brokers will qualify for valuable CPD points as well as Source Reward Points by attending the events.

The two Roadshows will be held at the City Hotel, Derry on Monday 5 December and the Dunsilly Hotel, Antrim on Tuesday 6 December.

Sam Kirtikar, managing director at Clever Lending, said: “With our excellent relationships with many lenders in the second charge market, we are delighted to have worked closely with Source to bring these much needed roadshows to fruition. In such a growing mortgage market, it’s vitally important that master brokers, lenders and other providers show support for brokers across the UK, and not just on the mainland. We are confident that the roadshows will be very well attended and provide a valuable service to the finance sector in Northern Ireland.”

Brian Coulton, head of sales at Source Insurance, added: “There is definitely a thirst for knowledge amongst financial and mortgage advisers in Northern Ireland to learn about new ways to grow their finance businesses. It has been under served in this regard for many years and as well as covering the opportunities in the general insurance market, brokers will also be able to learn more about second charge and buy to let products available to help their clients.”
