TMA and Abbey host ‘better business’ seminars

The Mortgage Alliance has linked up with Abbey to co-host a series of ‘better business’ seminars available exclusively to TMA members.

As 2009 proves to be a challenging year for the industry, TMA is hitting the road in its quest to become closer to its members to help gauge how to best serve their needs and service requirements.

With this in mind TMA and Abbey have joined forces to give brokers a chance to meet their local Abbey key regional account manager, sales consultant and underwriter in addition to TMA outlining its proposition for the year ahead.

TMA has also put forward a prize of two tickets to see Take That at Wembley on 1st July 2009.

This prize includes tickets within the Abbey corporate box and includes full corporate hospitality with several other TMA brokers, hosted by TMA.

Each TMA member who attends one of the seminars will automatically be entered into a prize draw.

The seminar dates include;
• St Albans – 3 March 2009
• Peterborough – 4 March 2009
• Birmingham – 10 March 2009
• Gloucester – 11 March 2009
• Manchester – 16 March 2009
• Southampton – 18 March 2009
• London – 19 March 2009
• Redhill – 25 March 2009
• Tonbridge – 26 March 2009

All of the events will commence from 2pm and last for approximately two hours. For further information and details of how to register, brokers should visit TMA’s website.

Phil Whitehouse, head of TMA, says: “All aspects of the market, including intermediaries, must continue embracing diversity and constantly evaluate their business models in order to survive and prosper.

“We, at TMA, are no different and like the majority of the industry we are having to overcome a number of obstacles in order to help intermediaries write business. However, we believe maintaining closer contact with our members is vital in assuring that our proposition remains relevant and continues adding value.”
