The Association of Mortgage Intermediaries is to launch a standing committee to represent packagers in a bid to unify industry.
When asked their opinion of a possible trade body for packagers, similar to AMI, half of the delegates at the Mortgage Strategy Packager’s Summit thought this would be a positive influence on the industry. Almost all agreed that a sub committee would be a more realistic idea.
Chris Cummings, director general of AMI, says: “We would be delighted to offer AMI’s offices to bring the alliances together. It would be a self-selecting process and I would hope be able to deliver changes similar to those that AMI delivered to the intermediary sector.”
