The new association between NAMBA and AIFA will appear in public for the first time at next week's Mortgage Business Expo at London's 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's principal tasks to convey this message to the membership.”
