Mortgage Business Expo (MBE) has revealed that the Financial Intermediary and Broker Association (FIBA) will be hosting a debate at the Leeds Expo on 25 April.
Adam Tyler, the executive chairman of FIBA, will chair the debate which will cover topics such as insights into the economic outlook and the opportunities for financial intermediaries and lenders in the current market.
Tyler will be joined by a panel of lenders to answer questions from intermediaries at the Expo and help them get a greater understanding of the opportunities within the specialist lending industry.
FIBA represents intermediaries and brokers and helps create a fairer market for them and their customers as well as providing representation at the highest levels of regulatory and government bodies.
Pre-registration for the Expo, which is being held at the Royal Armouries (pictured) is up by 25%.
Tyler said: “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to debate the key issues in the specialist finance sectors at MBE Leeds. There are many complex scenarios impacting our markets and I aim to provide the very latest thinking and viewpoints to financial intermediaries at an important time for our markets, regulation, technology and, of course, Brexit. I’m confident it will be an interesting debate and I also look forward to hearing the opinions and questions of the MBE Expo delegates during the session.”
Mike Mikunda from MBE added: “We are very pleased to have the recently-formed FIBA joining us at MBE Leeds. I’m sure there will be a lively debate and intermediaries from Yorkshire will have a terrific opportunity to learn about the role of FIBA and current market trends in their sectors.
“It’s a very strong addition to our already excellent seminar programme which also includes the Bank of England, Aldermore and Gatehouse Bank. It’s gearing up to be a very popular Expo with a big increase in pre-registrations and I would encourage those in the region involved in financial services to register for free now.”
