Adviser online network IFA Life Mortgages launches

Online networking forum IFA Life is launching a version for the mortgage market branded IFA Life Mortgages.

The move is in response to demand from mortgage professionals for a dedicated forum to provide online networking, business resources and debate on a range of industry issues appropriate to their needs.

IFA Life Mortgages launched on its ‘Ecademy’ network this week, with over
100 mortgage advisers visiting the forum on the first day.

Online conveyancing experts DCUK will support the forum.

IFA Life founder Philip Calvert says: “Whilst IFA Life has established itself as the leading online networking and discussion forum for IFAs, a lot of mortgage brokers have approached us to ask if we would provide a forum exclusively for them.

“Increasingly technology and the Internet is playing a bigger and bigger part in
the lives of consumers, and a core part of IFA Life Mortgages is to help brokers
to leverage the Web and to improve their profile on Google and other search

“It is also open to lenders, packagers, mortgage software providers, recruitment forms and anyone involved in the industry. Just as in the main IFA Life forum, providers can communicate, interact and engage with brokers and so build a better understanding of how each other work.”
