MBE 2009 announces MMR seminar focus


The UK’s biggest event for financial intermediaries, Mortgage Business Expo 2009, has unveiled full details of both the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries (AMI) and Intermediary Mortgage Lender’s Association (IMLA) Seminar Theatres taking place on the 11th and 12th November at Olympia 2, London. 

This year’s event provides the mortgage industry with an opportunity to debate and hear the latest viewpoints on the FSA’s recommendations made in the Mortgage Market Review (MMR), with both the IMLA and AMI seminars will be covering the MMR in depth.


The AMI programme of seminar sessions includes a presentation from Lesley Titcomb of the FSA on the MMR on Day One, with Robert Sinclair of AMI covering the main MMR issues on Day Two. 


The IMLA Lenders Theatre offers sessions on ‘The Future of the Mortgage Market’ with a presentation by Peter Williams, Executive Director of IMLA, plus a discussion focused on the likely outcomes of the MMR with panel attendees Stephen Smith (L&G), Jonathan Sandall (Shelter), Paul Howard and James Briffett (both Nationwide Building Society).


Other AMI Theatre presentations cover the economy and its impact on the housing/mortgage markets, how advisers can market their businesses into the next decade, effective lead generation, plus making equity release work and the viability of sale and rent back. The IMLA Theatre also includes presentations from lenders Nationwide Building Society and Platform, plus a wider look at the buy-to-let market.


Daniel Nwaokolo, MBE 2009 Show Director, commented:“The seminar presentations at MBE 2009 are a core part of the event and once again we are delighted to have such a strong programme in both the AMI and IMLA Theatres. Clearly, the mortgage market has a huge amount of information to digest with the recommendations made by the FSA in this week’s MMR and this is why we have a number of sessions dedicated to the review, its content and the future implications for intermediaries and advisers. 


“This a period of great potential change for the mortgage market and we look forward to welcoming all stakeholders to MBE next month to debate and discuss the future path of the mortgage industry.”
