BDS trains brokers in debt management

BDS Mortgage Group has arranged an additional training date for brokers to learn more about Guardian Debt Management and the associated income opportunity.

To date BDS has hosted five sessions and trained over 70 brokers who can now actively promote and sell client/debt management services to their clients.

The sessions include identifying solutions and training on Guardian’s instant decision system, Casemaster.

In order to gain authority to offer the Guardian products and services, brokers must attend a training session.

The session is being held at the BDS training facility in Fareham on October 24 2008. Both appointed representatives and direct authorised brokers are eligible to attend and booking is via the BDS website.

Bob Hope, sales and marketing director of BDS, says: “Feedback has been very positive for this service as in the current financial market, we are seeing more clients experiencing credit difficulties and brokers need to be prepared. It is also a real chance for brokers to recoup some income and I am confident that as previously we will fill the allocated places very quickly.”
