Economist John Kay to speak at AMI annual dinner

The Association of Mortgage Intermediaries is holding its seventh annual dinner on 8 June at Plaisterers Hall, in the City of London, with economist John Kay as guest speaker.

AMI says it is helping members plan for the business opportunities created in a post-banking crisis world.

Robert Sinclair, director, of AMI, says: “I look forward to hearing from such an eminent Financial Times columnist, but this is to belittle John’s achievements.

“As a Fellow of St John’s College, Oxford, co-authoring five editions of The British Tax System with Mervyn King, holding both a chair and a post of Visiting Professor at London Business School, Professor of Management at the University of Oxford and a Fellow of the British Academy, John has displayed hunger for sharing his knowledge in a truly committed way.

“As a gifted author, his books The Truth about Markets, Everlasting Light Bulbs, The Hare and the Tortoise have all shed credible light on what for many are complex inter-related issues. John’s acclaimed new book Obliquity provides a fascinating insight in the making of successful decisions.

“John’s observations will provide an interesting insight, in the post-election period, into what the drivers for change are in the wider economy.  It will be revealing to hear about potential impacts on the housing and mortgage market from such a considered political and economic thinker.”
