Your chance to grill the FSA at MBE

The Association of Mortgage Intermediaries is calling on brokers to submit their questions to the Financial Services Authority in advance of next week’s Mortgage Business Expo.

Sheila Nicoll, director of conduct policy at the FSA will be speaking at the Expo next week.

Brokers can put their questions to Nicoll in advance by contacting Caroline Tory at AMI on 020 7826 9030 or or visiting the AMI stand at the exhibition via a question box.

MBE is being held on November 10 and 11 at Olympia II.

The AMI programme also includes Grant Stevens, managing director at Leadbay, Guy Garrard, head of business development at TIUTA and John Malone, executive chairman at PMS.

Robert Sinclair, director at AMI, says: “We have worked with MBE since its inception and are delighted to be working on it once again. The industry is seeing a large amount of regulatory change at the moment, not least with the Mortgage Market Review. MBE provides members with an excellent opportunity to question the regulator and discuss the implications of regulatory change.

“It is also a fantastic opportunity for our members to gain updates on regulatory issues and hear from some of the key lenders. We would encourage members and non members alike to come and visit us at the show.”

James Prosser, MBE 2010 show director says: “I would like to thank Robert and everyone at AMI for creating such a strong, informative and of the moment seminar programme for our attendees.”
