In partnership with Secure Trust Bank

Following the success of its inaugural specialist lending workshops, Brightstar Financial has launched a new specialist lending webinar in partnership with Secure Trust Bank.


The webinar, which will focus on the first charge specialist residential mortgage market, takes place on Wednesday 18 July at 11am. It will feature a 20-minute presentation on the opportunities for brokers to grow their business by finding a home for their difficult cases and there will be a chance for participants to put live questions to the experts. Brokers can register for the webinar at https://brightstarhub.co.uk/news/new-for-2018-specialist-lending-workshops/.


Brokers have praised the value of taking part in their latest workshop run by Brightstar, which was held at their headquarters on 21st June in partnership with Magellan Homeloans.


Following the workshop, Lucy Johnson Botta, Mortgage & Protection Adviser at Johnson Brooks Mortgage Solutions, said: “I found the information really valuable. It was refreshing to get impartial advice on the non-standard lending market and I’ve revised my opinion about the sector. I’m keen to attract this kind of business and I’ll definitely be using some of the marketing ideas.”


Michelle Westley, Head of Marketing at Brightstar Financial, said: “We have been blown away by feedback we’ve received from brokers who attended our recent specialist lending workshops. It’s clear that there is a real appetite amongst intermediaries to learn more about the specialist mortgage market and the wealth of options that can help them to deliver great client outcomes. Not everyone can make it to Billericay to take part in a workshop in person, so by going online and running the session as a webinar we are making specialist lending more accessible to every broker, wherever they are located.”


Tony Hall, Head of Sales and Marketing at Secure Trust Bank Mortgages, said: “Employment patterns and demographics in the UK are changing. The emergence of the gig economy provides opportunity to earn more and greater flexibility, but irregular income can still prove problematic for many mortgage lenders. We also have an aging population, with many people working beyond retirement age, often with an outstanding balance on their mortgage.


“For mortgage brokers, it is vital to understand the options available to help those clients who are self-employed, contract workers, earn income from multiple sources or are borrowing into retirement. We are really pleased to partner with Brightstar to deliver this webinar, which will provide straightforward and honest information for brokers who want to grow their business and help more clients.”
