Charity calendar will reveal secrets of the mortgage professionals

From Andrew Forsey

The silly season is surely upon us. The normally staid Financial Services Authority has introduced a campaign called, ‘Mortgages laid bare’.

Go to the FSA consumer website and you’re bombarded with cartoon characters totally naked, their modesty covered only by captions.

I’m not sure this approach will raise the profile of transparent charges and consumer advice but it certainly shifts the goalposts toward a much more fun approach.

We have decided to embrace this approach by featuring the FSA campaign on our website and have taken it a stage further by bringing out a calendar for next year entitled, ‘Mortgage brokers laid bare’. The calendar will be available in early December for 5.99 including postage and packing. All profits will go to Cancer Research.

As you can see from this picture, it’s all in the best possible taste.
