The 2015 series of Mortgage Vision events saw a 23% jump in broker attendance to the highest level in the event’s six-year history.
Over 800 mortgage brokers attended one of the eight free-to-attend events organised by Mortgage Brain.
More than 96% of attendees rating them as ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’ and over 98% said they would recommend them to their peers.
The direct impact of the Mortgage Credit Directive (MCD) on brokers took centre stage this year with headline speakers from the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries (AMI) and Nationwide/The Mortgage Works.
They set out what MCD will mean to brokers and the changes lenders are making in light of the new rules.
Aldermore, Bright Grey, Clydesdale Bank, ConveyancingBrain, Fluent Money, Mortgage Brain, Nationwide/The Mortgage Works, Skipton Intermediaries and Santander for Intermediaries shared expert views and took part in exclusive round table discussions.
Michael Sludworth, a broker from True Potential Wealth Management, said: “This year’s Mortgage Vision event gave me some good ideas on generating more business and looking at alternative income streams such as conveyancing.”
Robert Sinclair, AMI chief executive and headline speaker at this year’s events, said: “The feedback and support we received from brokers was fantastic.
“The events presented the perfect platform to address the issues surrounding the introduction of MCD.”
