Car Finance Regulation & Development Forum
Solely bringing together industry lenders and brokers
This exclusive forum is a key opportunity for senior policy makers at specialist motor finance brokers and the lenders that provide their funding facilities, to jointly discuss the regulatory landscape and explore initiatives to modernise the industry and stay ahead of expectations.
The broker origination channel continues to grow in significance for both major and smaller independent lenders, and the relationship between the parties must develop further to ensure that delivery of products results in an improvement in customer outcomes whilst maintaining profitability.
The agenda will focus solely on the issues facing the partnership between brokers and lenders, considering how the FCA and other regulation can be effectively managed, particularly in light of the clear directive to protect customers from potential harm.
Our industry has an opportunity to take the lead by improving both professionalism and communication. By bringing the key organisations together, alongside the regulatory bodies and selected technology and business consultants much progress can be achieved.
Included within your pass is access to a private networking dinner which will be held on the evening of the forum. To book please click here.
