FCA to speak on Mortgages Market Study at Manchester FSE
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) will be speaking on its latest Mortgages Market Study paper at this year’s Financial Services Expo (FSE) in Manchester this week.




Following the publication of its Mortgages Market Study – Interim Report earlier this month, Graeme McLean, head of banking, lending and distribution policy and Matthew Ward, manager, wholesale and investments competition at the regulator will be addressing delegates and answering questions.

The seminar session, entitled FCA update on the Mortgage Market Study will provide further detail on the interim report and offer the regulator’s thinking on a key number of areas.


Later life lending

Other sessions include a later life lending debate, chaired by David Burrows from the Equity Release Council, a lender panel with Nationwide, Barclays, Together and Aldermore and a buy-to-let session with David Whittaker and Adrian Moloney.

The exhibition will also include the FSE Academy – a series of educational seminar sessions for advisers focusing at areas of regulatory and business change on buy to let and GDPR.

James Prosser, managing director of Front Events, organisers of FSE Manchester, said the report provided plenty of measures and proposals which were likely to have a significant impact on the mortgage broker market, and so it was right and proper that the regulator discussed this further and to took questions on it.

“This study could potentially pave the way for some game-changing developments in the mortgage advisory space, and it’s important that our delegates understand what the FCA is seeking to do, and to give the regulator their views on whether any measures that come out of the study are likely to herald either threats or opportunities.”

The event is at The Emirates, Old Trafford.
