Thinc Destini launches buy-to-let seminars

Thinc Destini has launched a series of buy-to-let seminars throughout the UK.

The seminars will help advisers maximise opportunities within the marketplace for their clients.

The buy-to-let market has experienced phenomenal growth over the past few years and Thinc Destini anticipates an ongoing continuation of this trend.

The two-hour seminars will help educate consumers about the opportunities available in this market.

Since the focus is to improve consumer education of the buy-to-let market, advisers will be invited to bring interested clients to the free seminars.

Alex Murray, group director of mortgages at Thinc Destini, says: The property market has experienced unprecedented growth over the past few years.

Since 1940, the average house price has doubled every nine and a half years, even though this growth is unlikely to be repeated, there is still a huge opportunity for investors within the buy-to-let market.

There are many exciting and varied opportunities for potential buyers and our aim is for these seminars to provide real insights and practical guidance into this market to help consumers.

The seminars will cover a variety of topics across the buy-to-let market and are being initially held at six venues around the UK.

However, due to high demand further are being planned.

Murray adds: We see these seminars as an effective way to educate consumers considering entering the buy-to-let market in a consistent and non-pressurised environment.

This is yet another example of how Thinc Destini supports its advisers by providing added value to its clients.
