Mortgage Business Expo (MBE), the mortgage industry’s premier event for intermediaries, has unveiled the programme for this year’s MBE London event.

The event, which takes place on 10th October at the Business Design Centre, will feature a series of seminars specifically designed to add value to the intermediaries in attendance, chaired by Rob Barnard, Director of Intermediary Relationships at Pepper Money.

Sessions will include:

  • General Market Overview: What does 2024 tell us about what to expect in 2025?

  • Later Life Lending: What does the future hold?

  • Residential Mortgages: The ongoing affordability challenges and placing cases with complexities around income and credit

  • Fireside Chat: AR and DA – The merits of each

  • The Changing Face of Buy-to-Let

The Financial Intermediary & Broker Association (FIBA), will again be holding their Specialist Property Finance Summit within the MBE day and their sessions will include:

  • The role of Bridging and Development Finance

  • Expanding Your Business Through Specialist Property Finance

In addition, attendees can take advantage of the marketing sessions hosted by Google Digital Garage and the Mortgage Marketing Forum, covering subjects such as digital marketing and the future of lead generation.

Rob Elder, the Bank of England’s Agent for Greater London, will be once again delivering the keynote address, providing his insights into the current state of the economy and the future outlook for the UK.

Visitors will earn CPD hours towards the CII/Personal Finance Society member CPD scheme through attendance, and are urged to register now in order to secure their slot at the MBE London event.

Mike Mikunda from MBE commented:

“The MBE has a proud reputation for delivering events that provide real value to our attendees.

Our superb seminar line-up for MBE London covers a broad range of topics close to the hearts of intermediaries at the moment, and are sure to feature informative and illuminating discussions.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet with a wide range of exhibitors on the day, covering every corner of the mortgage market, so it’s an event not to be missed.”

Martin Reynolds, Chief Executive Officer of SimplyBiz Mortgages and FIBA Chairman, added:

“Our conversations with brokers play a crucial role in determining the subject matter for our seminars at our Specialist Property Finance Summit  and it’s clear that brokers are looking ever more closely at specialist finance.

We look forward to both hosting our sessions and also being part of some of the MBE sessions which shows how the two markets are drawing ever closer.

I am confident that intermediaries will find the sessions, and the day itself, incredibly useful and am delighted to once again be working with MBE on what is one of the highlights of the year.”
