Rob Jupp to address inaugural Financial Services Expo

Brightstar Financial CEO Rob Jupp is to address the inaugural Financial Services Expo on 2 October as one of the exhibition’s main speakers.  

Aside from overseeing the specialist lending firm, Jupp also took up this month the role of chairman of the Association of Bridging Professionals. Jupp will be discussing today’s specialist lending market as well as analysing the current mainstream mortgage market.

Jupp says: “What I want to do is provide some context to show how the past has had such a considerable bearing on how the market looks today, what the future holds for intermediaries and the lending community, as we continue to reach for a sustainable, profitable and compliant state of normality.”

Financial Services Expo director James Prosser says: “We are delighted that Rob will be speaking in the MAB Protection and Specialist Lending Seminar in what will be a thought provoking and relevant session for anyone interested in the specialist lending market’s future.”
