Zurich has built a 96-seat theatre known as The Zurich Mortgage Network Theatre from which it will run a two-day seminar programme at this year's Mortgage Business Expo.
Zurich, sponsors of the Expo, is aiming to attract intermediaries to its mortgage network at this year's show, taking place at Earls Court on November 18 and 19.
The seminars will be split in to three parts. Part one will be lead by Dave Seviour, director of the Mortgage Code Compliance Board and a previous member of the Financial Services Authority's External Mortgage Advisory Group. It will provide intermediaries with a picture of the range of changes coming to the mortgage market and how these will affect them and their businesses over the coming months.
Part two will be lead by Richard Coulson, director at Zurich Mortgage Network. It will look at the different areas of the mortgage market including, buy-to-let, adverse, remortgaging and international, and will focus on the business opportunities available to intermediaries within these areas.
Part three will also be lead by Richard Coulson and will focus on the Zurich Mortgage Network proposition.
Coulson says: “We have researched the market thoroughly and taken our time to design and build a service which not only provides mortgage advisers with everything they need in order to prosper in the current market, but which is also robust and flexible enough to ensure this prosperity continues into the future.
“It is now a case of showing the intermediary market what we, as a network, can do for them. With over 4,000 expected to be at the Mortgage Business Expo 2003 over the two days we see it as the perfect platform from which to do this.”
ZMN was set up in July 2003 and has three contracts for intermediaries; tied mortgage and protection, non-tied mortgage and protection and non-tied protection only.
