em- heads over the border for roadshow tour

UK mortgage packager and branded lender em- has lined up Scotland as the first stop on its 2006 nationwide roadshow programme.

The Macdonald Crutherland Hotel in Glasgow will host the roadshow on February 28 2006 and The Dalmahoy Country Club and Hotel in Edinburgh will welcome brokers on March 1 2006.

With seminars from all em- sub-brands including em-homeloans, em- commercial, em-secured, em-bridging and em-international, brokers will be given the opportunity to gain information on services of em-.

Appearances from key lenders at the roadshows will also equip brokers with information on how they can benefit from joint lender / em- exclusives.

Guy Garrard, director of business development at em-, says: The roadshow events we held during 2005 proved to be immensely popular with our broker community. Support from our lending partners combined with well chosen locations always result in excellent turnout and many business enquiries.

Brian Pitt, director at Beacon Homeloans, says: I am delighted to support em- on its roadshow programme starting in Scotland in the early part of 2006. This will coincide with Beacon’s planned launch of our lending proposition in Scotland too, so I am looking forward to working closely with em- to drive that development.
