NAMBA/AIFA plan first public outing at Expo

The new association between NAMBA and AIFA will appear in public for the first time at next week&#39s Mortgage Business Expo at London&#39s Olympia, writes Helen McCormick.

Members of the National Association of Mortgage Brokers and Advisers steering committee and staff of the Association of Independent Advisers will share a stand at the event.

NAMBA chairman Charles Gooding told members in a recent memo: “The strategic alliance is going well. We have had several meetings with IMLA and the CML. Support from trade bodies and from lenders is growing.”

NAMBA has appointed a working party to draft the NAMBA/AIFA response to CP146. Gooding adds: “I have no doubt that the vast majority of mortgage intermediaries are still unaware of the full impact that statutory mortgage regulation represents, and it is one of NAMBA&#39s principal tasks to convey this message to the membership.”
