LIME announces roadshows

The LIME hosted roadshows have been carefully engineered to help advisers establish a more informed and competitive position for Mortgage and GI regulation. Having recently received its full part IV FSA authorisation, LIME believes it is in the best position to support advisers successfully through the regulatory maze.

Key industry figureheads Paul Smee, director general of AIFA, and Chris Cummings, director of AMI, will be guest speakers along with leading lenders and key personnel within the Tenet Group to help advisers plan for these imminent changes.

Delegates attending the roadshows will find out what actions need to be taken to be compliant within the regulatory regime and how they can increase their income stream.

The day will also include in-depth training and breakout sessions as well as an overview of the latest support provisions from LIME. Latest initiatives include a comprehensive GI and packager panel, on-line conveyancing, leading marketing support, a Select Lender Support programme, exclusives and a new commercial lending proposition.

These events will take place at:

Edinburgh Sept 29

Leeds Oct 8

Dorking Oct 18

Stratford upon Avon Oct 22

Bristol Oct 25
