Lime, Tenet’s Tenet’s non-investment network will travel across the UK to eight venues, delivering presentations from primary lenders and hosting interactive roundtable sessions.

The roadshows start on November 13 in Edinburgh. Lime members can access information and booking forms on the dedicated member extranet.

Tenet group distribution & development director Keith Richards says: “There is a significant protection gap in the UK and in the current climate, protection is commonly the area to be impacted by mortgage rate increases.

“This year’s roadshows are focusing on an education programme to help advisers successfully highlight the risks to ensure their client’s families and dependants are not left exposed – we all have a responsibility under TCF to address this key area of financial planning.”
