Specialist lenders flock to MBE Leeds


mbeMortgage Business Expo (MBE) has over 40 major financial companies, including specialist lenders Blemain Finance, Hope Capital and Masthaven Finance, attending the event at the Royal Armouries on 22nd April.

The MBE is the longest established and the most well respected Expos, having held regular events in London and Manchester for over 14 years. This is their first event in Leeds and it’s the ideal place for mortgages brokers, IFAs and financial consultants to meet with lenders, retirement planning companies and specialist providers of commercial and bridging finance for property development.

Registration for visitors is free and they will have the opportunity to directly discuss the finance and planning needs for their clients with major financial brands such as building societies, specialist lenders, retirement planning providers and industry bodies such as the FCA and the Society of Mortgage Professionals.

Seminars are also being held during the day which are CPD Cll accredited so qualify for valuable CPD points. Keynote speakers include Peter Hill, Chief Executive, Leeds Building Society, Lynda Blackwell from The FCA, Gary Salter from Nationwide for Intermediaries and Richard Deacon of Masthaven Finance.

Mike Mikunda, from MBE commented:

“We were keen to bring the Expo to Yorkshire as there are so many bridging and commercial lenders servicing the region and supplying much-needed property and development funding to the thriving broker and IFA market. We have had a terrific response from providers and stands have been snapped up with over 40 exhibitors now involved. There’s a growing landlord, rental and finance community in Yorkshire and brokers, IFAs and introducers will find it beneficial to talk directly with specialist lenders and service providers about their latest products. It’s going to be a very well attended Expo and I would encourage those in the region involved in finance to register for free at the website.”
