FCA’s Lynda Blackwell to address FSE Glasgow

FCA mortgage sector manager Lynda Blackwell will speak at the inaugural Financial Services Expo Glasgow event. 

Association of Mortgage Intermediaries chief executive Robert Sinclair will host a series of seminarsm, including one on the MMR with Blackwell.

Other seminars will cover protection, equity release and specialist lending, all of which will contribute to attendees’ CII CPD points.

Event organisers’ Front Events acquired the Edinburgh-based Blimey Loans! show in 2014 and has brought it under the FSE brand, along with the Manchester and London show.

The event takes place on 4 March at the Hilton Glasgow.

Front Events director James Prosser says: “We’re very excited to begin what will be a fantastic year for the FSE with our Glasgow show.

“We want to support the growing Scottish market and we think the show will be a boost to the advisory community.”
