Specialist lending workshops from TFC

The workshops will take place on the mornings of 9 and 10 of June in Warrington and London, and will provide brokers with a comprehensive introduction to specialist lending. There will be expert presentations from Shawbrook Bank, Masthaven and Lancashire Mortgage Corporation as well as from TFC Homeloans.

Nigel Payne, managing director of TFC Homeloans, said: “We run these workshops because we want to help advisers better understand the specialist lending sector. It can be complicated but it can also be very rewarding, both in terms of serving your clients’ needs and increasing your own income.

“Our workshops give a complete introduction to specialist lending, so you can feel confident about referring clients to distributors in the future.”

Key topics being discussed at the events include the looming regulatory changes and the impact they will have on mortgage brokers, overviews of the bridging and second charge sectors and a focus on commercial lending. There will also be a Q&A session with all of the morning’s key speakers, refreshments, and every adviser will receive a 2.5 hour CPD certificate.

Nick Jones, national sales manager at Lancashire Mortgage Corporation, said: “These specialist lending workshops are a fantastic platform for advisers to find out more about how bridging, commercial and second charge products can work to provide the right solution for each client. Every case is different and it’s important for advisers to see that these products can be tailored to give a more flexible and common sense approach to each application.”

Maeve Ward, sales and operations director at Shawbrook Bank, said: "We are pleased to be supporting TFC with their lending workshops. The events will prove to be informative of the opportunities for secured lending as well as sharing our knowledge of the regulatory changes from March 2016."

Jim Baker, business development manager at Masthaven, added: "I'm looking forward to explaining to brokers how bridging could benefit their clients and boost their business. These events are friendly and really informative, giving advisers all the tools they need to spot future opportunities.”
