FSE Glasgow confirms seminar programme

The seminar programme for Financial Services Expo Glasgow has been unveiled and is set to focus on a large number of issues including the Mortgage Credit Directive.

The series of seminars have been put together by the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries and Financial Reporter and cover mortgages, buy-to-let, protection, insurance and retirement lending, as well as a regulatory update. Speakers from a number of high-profile lenders and providers will be providing the CII CPD-accredited sessions.

Alistair Ewing of The Lending Channel will open the day by exploring the topic of the moment, the effects of the Mortgage Credit Directive on second charge lending, followed by a panel debate featuring Alistair and speakers from Brightstar Financial, Masthaven Finance, and Shepherds Surveyors.

These will be followed by a look at the protection market from Johnny Timpson of Scottish Widows, an honest discussion about equity release by Gary Webster of Equity Release Supermarket, and a buy-to-let session from Rob Barnard of Aldermore Bank.

The final session will be a regulatory update – speaker to be confirmed – which will look at how intermediaries can stay compliant in 2016 amid changing market regulation.

James Prosser, director of Front Events, organisers of FSE Glasgow, said:“We’re very pleased, as always, to have a number of industry experts providing their analysis of the big issues in financial services this year, and we look forward to a busy and productive day.

“On top of our main seminar theatre we once again have the specialist lending seminars offered by Shawbrook Bank at FSE in 2016 – we’re delighted that they are joining us again and urge our delegates to make the most of the range of informative sessions on offer."

FSE Glasgow will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow on Wednesday 16 March and will provide visitors with access to over 40 exhibitors including lenders, distributors, networks, insurance providers, technology companies, and many more.

As well as the main seminar theatre, Shawbrook Bank will be running its own Academy at FSE Glasgow hosting a number of specialist lending seminars from a variety of industry experts.
