AMI produces guide to cold calling

The Association of Mortgage Intermediaries has produced a factsheet about cold calling, which will be banned once statutory regulation kicks off in October.

The guide concentrates on what AMI&#39s members will be allowed to do with regard to cold calling, and has been produced following discussions with the FSA, a review of the final rules and guidance from the regulator.

Director Chris Cummings says: “There has been much said about the cold calling ban. Most of it has focused on what mortgage intermediaries cannot do. AMI always looks for ways in which members can carry on their business within the rules and so we decided to produce a guide letting members know what they can do.”
