"It's testament to the popularity of the now well-established Leeds MBE Expo that such a major lender as Aldermore will present important research."
Mortgage Business Expo (MBE) Leeds on 25th April at the Royal Armouries, will feature a CPD seminar by Aldermore’s Roger Evans discussing the findings of market research into the buy to let sector.
Recent research commissioned by Aldermore confirms that a growing number of landlords are diversifying their portfolios and investing in “specialist buy-to-let”. Despite this though, many brokers avoid, or are reluctant to take on, what they consider to be time consuming cases particularly when they’re not confident they will end successfully.
Roger Evans, head of intermediary distribution at Aldermore, will discuss the opportunity specialist buy-to-let presents, how big the potential market is and what the opportunity is for brokers and intermediaries.
Registering for the Expo is free and with other blue chip seminars and exhibitors attending the event, pre-registration is up 25%.
Other keynote speakers include William Holman of the Bank of England and Charles Haresnape of Gatehouse Bank, with Charles discussing the increasing demand for Shariah finance. Mark Dryden of 360Dotnet will also be presenting on the latest technical developments for the industry.
The Financial Intermediary and Broker Association (FIBA) will be hosting a debate specially for the event. Adam Tyler, the executive chairman of FIBA, will chair the debate which will cover topics such as insights into the opportunities for financial intermediaries and lenders in the current market.
Further panel debates will cover mortgage lending and a debate on the changes in fintech such as GDPR, open banking and broker systems.
Mike Mikunda, Event Director, commented: “It’s testament to the popularity of the now well-established Leeds MBE Expo that such a major lender as Aldermore will present important research for the benefit of our delegates. It’s going to be a highly informative session and I would urge those involved in the buy to let market in Yorkshire to register free for the event.
“We have a strong roster of lenders and service providers all under one roof on the 25th April where financial intermediaries can meet and discuss the very latest products and innovations in the mortgage, property and specialist finance markets. Our CPD seminars will provide updates on the UK economy, as well as the current thinking on sourcing funding for commercial and development projects.”
