Getting to grips with mortgage regulation

This year’s Money Marketing Live in London will provide intermediaries with a dedicated mortgage seminar stream discussing the very latest developments within the industry.

Mortgage Strategy Live will take place at Olympia in London on May 5 as part of Money Marketing Live and will feature key industry figures offering advice on some of the most important issues facing intermediaries.

The seminar programme will include a special panel debate discussing the opp-ortunities and threats in the new regulated mortgage market.

Panellists will include Association of Mortgage Intermediaries director Chris Cummings, Society of Mortgage Professionals chief executive Richard Fox, Premier Mortgage Service managing director John Malone and Charcol senior technical manager Ray Boulger.

Cummings will also be speaking with TLT Solicitors head of financial services regulation Philip Ryley on the latest initiatives from the regulator. In particular, they will examine exactly what the FSA’s treating customers fairly entails and the consequences for non-compliance.

It is an issue that they feel advisers need to know about. Ryley says: “Some IFAs may think that treating customers fairly is only for product providers to implement. Well, they would be wrong and IFAs need to get to grips with this subject or otherwise face the risk of FSA enforcement in the future.”

Delegates will also have the opportunity to hear presentations from some of the country’s leading lenders.

Abbey for Intermediaries intermediary marketing manager Andy Wharam will offer insight into the housing market and offer intermediaries advice on how to separate the truth from the media scaremongering.

Alongside the presentations, there will also be a series of panel debates discussing the use of technology, the advantages of networks and the non-conforming sector.

Visitors to the exhibition will also be able to network with lenders, including the One Account, UCB Homeloans, Future Mortgages and show sponsors the Institute of Financial Services.

All visitors will have the chance to win a fabulous MG TF sports car sponsored by First Active simply by attending.
