BDS gets positive feedback from roadshows

BDS Mortgage Group has reported positive feedback from its recent roadshows, with 58% of delegates indicating their intention to go for direct authorisation.

BDS has also announced the four winners of its competition to win tickets to watch the Euro 2004 England vs Croatia at a football evening to be held at Southampton Football Club.

A large number of mortgage intermediaries attended the BDS roadshows held at Reigate, Portsmouth, Bournemouth and Reading. One winner was chosen at random from each venue. The winners are John Dike from Southern Financial Services, Pat McManus from North South Financ, Gavin Milroy from Frazers Financial Services and Dene Wotton from Assist.

The roadshows were organised primarily to give delegates more information about what BDS Mortgage Group will offer both appointed representatives and those choosing the direct submission route. Speakers included Julian Wells from Mortgages PLC; Dave Maharaj from Premier Protection alongside Bruce Collins, BDS head of compliance, Kerry Prince, BDS head of operations and BDS managing director Phil Jay.

Jay says: “Relationships are key to our business and roadshows have always provided the opportunity to meet and discuss issues that are affecting business. This time round the theme was primarily FSA regulation linked into what support services BDS are offering. There was a full programme of interesting and varied speakers and as the feedback showed the overall result was fantastic &#45 we look forward to the next round.”
