Credit Strategy launches FSE-Week, its first digital expo

Credit Strategy is today launching FSE-Week, a new event for 2020, which will be the UK’s largest broadcast trade show this year for financial intermediaries.

After Credit Strategy’s parent company acquired the Financial Services Expo (FSE) business earlier this year, the team has been working with FSE founder James Prosser to create an entirely new broadcast format for the national FSE trade events for 2020.


Beginning on September 28, FSE-Week will feature fully-digital broadcast sessions covering mainstream mortgage lending, specialist lenders, later life lenders and all other stakeholders that have faced a tumultuous period for the mortgage market.


This year, as Credit Strategy pivots its events to digital broadcast formats, FSE-Week will feature a range of sessions broadcast across a week. It begins with ‘Mainstream Monday’, featuring Lloyds Banking Group and other high street mortgage lenders delivering presentations. This will be followed by ‘Time out Tuesday’ which will feature, among others, Scottish Widows Bank.


By viewing these events, delegates will be able to accumulate more than 10 hours worth of CPD points. Tickets are complimentary - delegates only have to register to attend.


Highlighting their support of FSE-Week, Nicola Golder, senior manager, intermediary distribution at Lloyds, said: “FSE enables us to reconnect with existing contacts and make new connections. Our current situation makes it more vital for building and maintaining relationships, and ensuring that our intermediaries have sufficient information to assist the end customer.”


‘Specialist Wednesday’ broadcast sessions will follow, featuring lenders including Castle Trust Bank, which recently secured its banking licence. Barry Searle, managing director of property at Castle Trust, said: “I am delighted to support the event as FSE events are always so well organised and attended. The digital aspect is new to everybody, and we’re looking forward to being part of the first one.”


Specialist Wednesday will also feature Foundation Home Loans delivering a session on keeping connected with intermediaries.


Jeff Knight, director of marketing at Foundation Home Loans, said: “I have worked with FSE since its inception and trust James and co to make it work, even in the current environment in which we find ourselves. People keep saying we need to work together, so that’s what we are doing.


"We are working with everyone to ensure intermediaries know how we can help them help their clients, whose circumstances may well have changed this year. It is important for us, as a lender that is growing, to find ways to keep connecting with intermediaries.”


James Prosser, managing director of FSE Media, said: “FSE was created to help shape the future of financial services and by pioneering into a digital festival, FSE continues to do this.


“By not holding a physical FSE London event, we are reducing the carbon footprint by 33.5 tons of CO2 emissions. Across the four FSE events in 2019, we were visited by 3,168 financial intermediaries. By tuning into our broadcast events, via complimentary access, they’ll no longer have to leave their safe environment to network and educate themselves.”


As well as Halifax, Scottish Widows Bank, BM Solutions, Barclays, Foundation Home Loans, Castle Trust Bank, Iress and others, the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries (AMI), and the Intermediary Mortgage Lenders Association, the ERC, NACFB and BSA will be appearing at FSE-Week as event supporters.
