In our fourth and final Tech Talks debate in partnership with NatWest Intermediary Solutions, the panel discusses the role of the broker in the march towards a digital future.


Dan Salmons, director of innovation for mortgages, home buying and ownership at RBS, said: “You hear a lot about this sort of binary: ‘Is it robo advice or people?'”

He added: “Of course the answer is, a bit of both.”
