Financial Services Expo Glasgow announces seminar programme


Financial Services Expo Glasgow has unveiled its seminar programme for next month’s event.

The seminars will cover the Mortgage Credit Directive, buy-to-let, protection, retirement lending and a regulatory update.

The Lending Channel’s Alistair Ewing will open the day by taking about how regulation will affect the second charge market, which will be followed by a panel debate.

Then Johnny Timpson, of Scottish Widows, will give a take on the protection market followed by a talk from Equity Release Supermarket’s Gary Webster and a buy-to-let session from Aldermore’s Rob Barnard.

The final session will be a regulatory update that will look at how brokers can stay compliant in 2016. The speaker has not yet been confirmed.

As well as the main seminar theatre, Shawbrook Bank will be running its own academy, hosting a number of specialist lending seminars.

FSE Glasgow will be held on 16 March at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow and will have over 40 exhibitors.

James Prosser, director of Front Events, the organisers, says: “We’re very pleased, as always, to have a number of industry experts providing their analysis of the big issues in financial services this year and we look forward to a busy and productive day.

“On top of our main seminar theatre we once again have the specialist lending seminars offered by Shawbrook Bank at FSE in 2016 – we’re delighted that they are joining us again and urge our delegates to make the most of the range of informative sessions on offer.

“FSE Glasgow promises once again to be the must-attend event in Scotland for advisers. With the quality of both our seminar and exhibitor offering, we believe a visit to FSE on the 16 March will provide a fantastic level of support and information which will help intermediaries develop their propositions for the rest of the year and beyond.”
