Welcome to Mortgage Vision

Can you believe that 2019 will be the 10th year of Mortgage Vision? Every year we are proud to offer our free intermediary CPD accredited roadshow to so many advisers, both customers and non-customers, DAs and ARs, advancing their knowledge on regulation, technology and the economy. In addition, broadening their business horizons in this ever-changing industry and witnessing new networking contacts being made between delegates.

In 2018, 98% of attendees rated the events as ‘Excellent’ or ‘Very Good’ so we’re very pleased to build on the momentum from last year to make this the best roadshow yet. Here’s a little about what you can expect…

What to expect
Our annual events are put on to ensure that you gain essential knowledge about the market as a whole. We also like to ensure that you can discover new business opportunities and network with the best and brightest in the industry.

Our roadshows will feature talks from leading companies and inspirational leaders. We have to give special thanks to Emily Machin from OneSavings Bank, our CEO, Mark Lofthouse and Robert Sinclair of AMI who will be kick-starting each event with a 20 minute platform presentation.

Several roundtable sessions will then follow, featuring: Coventry Building Society, Fluent Money for Advisers, Mortgage Brain, NatWest, OneSavings Bank, Royal London, Santander, Skipton Building Society, and Together. You can use this unique chance to talk, discuss and question your providers face to face – a great opportunity to gain valuable bits of information and keep updated.

You’ll get plenty of chances before, during and after to network with fellow Advisers, as well as enjoy a free lunch. Of course, all our delegates will be able to claim up to 3.5 hours* structured CPD towards their CII member CPD scheme. You can see the full agenda here and the one for Belfast here

Topics being covered
We’ll also be covering a range of subjects, such as the Mortgages Market Review, the current mortgage market climate, the true value of the adviser to the customer and how technological advancement serves the Adviser and their future Customer to name a few.

Mortgage Vision 2016

2016’s Mortgage Vision events are drawing ever closer, and this year we are aiming to deliver even bigger and better events to all brokers who attend.

Starting from the 5th October, we’ll be travelling up and down the country, bringing you industry insights, information, and current and future opportunities within the UK mortgage market.

This year, we’ll also have a new Mortgage Vision app, which will enhance the overall adviser experience at all eight of our venues.

What is Mortgage Vision?
For those who are unaware, Mortgage Vision is a series of free-to-attend, annual events, organised and hosted by Mortgage Brain.

The events give attendees the chance to meet industry distributors and decision-makers, with headline speakers and our roundtable sessions ensuring all intermediaries who attend the events gain knowledge, which will help them improve their service and potentially bring in revenue for their business.

Of the events, Mortgage Brain’s CEO, Mark Lofthouse, said:

“With over 800 advisers attending in 2015, the Mortgage Vision events have gone from strength to strength and are considered to be one of the best and most informative mortgage events of the year. “The market is constantly changing, and we believe the Mortgage Vision events offer advisers the best platform to keep abreast of new challenges, make the most of

We will begin on 5th October at Winchester’s Norton Park, before going to Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium in London (11th October), Aston Villa Football Club in Birmingham (13th October), and then Lancashire Cricket Club in Manchester (18th October).

Who will be presenting the roundtable sessions?
There will be ten exclusive roundtable sessions throughout the day. Whilst you remain seated presenters will take it in turns to arrive at your table and deliver their fifteen-minute session, before they move onto the next.

We have a whole host of excellent presenters this year for our roundtable sessions. They include: Aldermore, Clydesdale Bank, ConveyancingBrain, Fluent for Advisers, iPipeline, Mortgage Brain, Nationwide, Royal London, Santander, Skipton Intermediaries and The Mortgage Works.

You will get to see five roundtable speakers before we break for refreshments, with the other five afterwards.

What does the Mortgage Vision App offer?
Our app is a new addition to Mortgage Vision events, and it will be available to everyone who registers for our half-day events.

The app will provide information and biographies on all event speakers and their presentations, as well as locations, parking details, and the all important event agenda so you know exactly what is going on and when.

What else can I expect from the events?
Attending a Mortgage Vision event will allow you to claim 3.5 CPD hours towards the CII member CPD scheme. This will be emailed to you after you have attended the event.

There will also be plenty of opportunities throughout the morning to network with other brokers, as well as a free lunch at the end of the day.

Each of the eight events begins with registration from 8.45am, with Platform Presentations starting promptly at 9:30am and we aim to finish between 1.45pm and 2pm followed by a free lunch.

We are aiming to make 2016’s events even bigger and better than the previous years, so make sure you join us to understand the further changes that are on the Horizon and how they will Impact you.
