PMS to bring regulation roadshow to Belfast

Premier Mortgage Service has revealed it will be hosting another Northern Ireland roadshow to help promote regulation in the province.

The Financial Services Authority, Association of Mortgage Intermediaries and Society of Mortgage Professionals have all agreed to present and discuss a number of topical issues with intermediaries from all over the country.

The event is to be held at The Culloden Hotel in Belfast, and delegates will hear presentations on a variety of topics including issues on the horizon for mortgage intermediaries, training qualifications and professionalism in the industry and a response from the FSA on the recent thematic visits.

John Malone, managing director of PMS, says: I believe that this will be the first time that the FSA, AMI and SoMP will be sharing the same platform in Northern Ireland for the benefit of the intermediaries.
