Paradigm to host Birmingham MMR round table

At the event, held at the National Motorcycle Museum, Paradigm will provide its take on MMR and how brokers can benefit, while Santander will also share its experiences and plans for the future in a presentation.

The round table; entitled ‘Post-MMR – how does the landscape look now?’ will allow mortgage brokers to hear from a range of lenders and providers about how they see the post-MMR environment panning out and the opportunities in the intermediary sector.

Bob Hunt, chief executive of Paradigm Mortgage Services, said: “There is an ongoing sense of anticipation, and perhaps trepidation, about what the new rules mean for the mortgage market particularly in the short-term and we wanted to ensure we held an event as close to the handover as possible.

“Next week we will be reflecting on the first few weeks of MMR, how it has been implemented and the experiences of brokers, their clients and the lenders.”

There will be representatives from a selection of lenders and providers including Ageas, Exeter Family Friendly, Legal and General, Skipton Intermediaries, Santander and Virgin Money.

The event, which is Paradigm’s fourth of 2014, is open to all directly authorised mortgage, protection and financial advisers, while attendees can earn structured and unstructured CPD points.

Hunt added: “As is customary at our events we will also be presenting attendees with access to a variety of lenders and providers who will be discussing their propositions with them as they look to grow existing and new relationships.

“This promises to be a very timely look at the new mortgage landscape and I’m sure advisers will be keen to share their views and experiences with us and all the lenders present.”
