Brightstar launches Autumn webinar programme


Michelle Westley Brightstar

Brightstar Financial has partnered with a number of industry experts to launch an Autumn programme of specialist lending webinars, building on the ongoing popularity of these online events.

The programme is designed to help brokers maximise the opportunity presented by the growing specialist market and kicks off on Wednesday 11th September, with Precise Mortgages highlighting 10 opportunities for brokers to contact landlords in the next year. It then continues Thursday 12th September, with UTB running a webinar on the many uses for bridging finance.

The webinars continue throughout the Autumn in partnership with lenders including Pepper Money, Shawbrook, MTF, Kensington and Masthaven. They will cover a varied range of specialist sectors, including specialist residential, short term lending, second charge mortgages, complex buy-to-let, unsecured business loans and later life lending.

Last month Brightstar launched an education programme for brokers, which includes a series of short educational videos and the opportunity to book a one-to-one video call with one or more of the distributor’s specialist experts.

Michelle Westley, Head of Marketing at Brightstar Financial, said:

“The specialist lending market is growing. Borrowers have an increasingly diverse range of circumstances and lenders are responding to meet this demand, but we still hear that many brokers are choosing to turn away clients with more complex requirements because they say they don’t have the time or the expertise to identify an appropriate solution.

“Our Autumn series of specialist lending webinars builds on our previous events and education programmes to demystify the sector and give brokers direct access to some of the industry’s leading experts. You don’t need to be an expert for you and your clients to benefit from the specialist market. You don’t even have to leave your desk, you just need to partner with a business that has the resource and expertise needed to diversify.  Such a partnership can only result in improved client retention, and if you’re currently missing opportunities or turning these clients away – incremental income.”
