ASTL confirms FCA at September Brexit-focused conference
The Association of Short Term Lenders (ASTL) has confirmed the line-up for its ‘Brexit and Bridging’ conference, on 14 September at Painters’ Hall in the City of London.

Focusing on the current environment for short term lending and bridging, the conference will examine the wider political context, and explore what attendees can do to ensure their businesses are prepared for the range of challenges and opportunities that they face.

Rob Lankey, ex-Aldermore managing director of commercial mortgages and former CEO of NACFB, and Michael Booth, barrister at New Square Chambers, join keynote speaker Tim Shipman, Sunday Times political editor.

In addition, presentations will also be made by Lorna O’Brien, technical specialist at the Financial Conduct Authority, Peter Andrews, agent for Greater London at the Bank of England, and Faisal Choudhry, a UK property analyst at Savills.

Benson Hersch (pictured), chief executive of the ASTL, said: “The bridging industry is going through a period of success and growth, but that does not mean that we can afford to ignore the range of challenges that the current economic and political environment are presenting.”

He added: “This line up of speakers will provide attendees with an unrivalled selection of experience, insight and analysis from across the regulatory, legal and political landscape to tackle these challenges.”

The event runs from 8.45am until 3:30pm on Thursday 14 September.
