The Financial Intermediary & Broker Association (FIBA), which is holding its inaugural annual conference on 17 January 2018 in London, has announced that its keynote speaker will be Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) member, Michael Saunders.
Saunders has been a member of the MPC since August 2016 and was UK economist at Citigroup from 1990 to 2016. He is one of four external members appointed directly by the Chancellor.
The conference will bring together lenders and intermediaries, including members of the AOBP whose membership will move to FIBA.
A spokesperson for the FIBA Executive Committee said: “We are delighted to welcome Michael Saunders to speak at the Association’s first conference. The event is an opportunity not only to hear on record from an MPC member at the heart of shaping economic thinking in the UK, both now and in a post Brexit future, but also to understand from FIBA’s Executive Committee how brokers and lenders can and will benefit from a close relationship with FIBA.”
