Credit Festival, beginning on November 3, will feature multiple conferences and awards programmes for the financial services and credit industries, which will now be held as live digital broadcasts within themed weeks.


FSE-Week, one of the themed weeks, will now kick-off on November 9, featuring broadcast sessions covering mainstream mortgage lending, specialist lenders, later life lenders and stakeholders across the market who have faced a tumultuous period for the mortgage market.


FSE-Week has also launched it’s very own microsite, where all the details and agenda for the week can be found. Click here to view the new site.


Mainstream Monday will feature a talk from Halifax on “Making it easier in the new world” and a debate on whether working practices have changed for good. The day will be chaired by Robert Sinclair, chief executive of the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries (AMI), and Kate Davies, executive director of the Intermediary Mortgage Lenders Association (IMLA). Virgin Money will also feature on Mainstream Monday.


Showing his support for FSE-Week, Sinclair said: “AMI has been a long-term supporter of FSE, we are excited to see these new developments of a week-long extravaganza replacing the original structure.


“This new digital approach should excite brokers and give them a great insight into current market conditions and the future, therefore we encourage as many as possible to join us for what should be a great event.”


Davies added: “IMLA was originally created as a trade association for mortgage lenders whose distribution is wholly or predominantly via mortgage intermediaries – so it’s very important to us that we support intermediaries as much as possible – particularly in these challenging times. We applaud FSE and Credit Strategy for its imaginative approach to this new-style event and look forward to taking part.”


Time Out Tuesday, chaired by the Equity Release Council, focuses on later life lending and will feature Pure Retirement on the agenda. There will be panels on how later life mortgages have evolved and debates on how to improve the standards of later life lending.


David Burrowes, Equity Release Council chair, said: “It’s never been more important for the equity release sector and the wider financial services industry to come together and share knowledge, and that’s exactly what events like the Financial Services Expo enable us to do.


“We’re looking forward to hosting a lively debate on the standards and protections available to equity release customers, now and in the future, which we believe will be of great interest to intermediaries of all kinds and not just specialists.”


A panel on future proofing the broker will kick-off Specialist Wednesday.


Each day, as FSE-Week runs from November 9-11, will also feature a lunchtime debate on important topics within the industry, such as the changing nature of the customer journey and supporting mental health in the workplace.


By attending the events within FSE-Week, delegates will be able to accumulate more than 10 hours worth of CII accredited CPD points. Tickets are complimentary – delegates only have to register to attend.
