Kevin Roberts, Director, Legal & General Mortgage Club, said: “The remote working world has undoubtedly made it more difficult to remain connected through these challenging and fast-changing times. Where we would normally meet at events, conferences and workshops, we now need to find new solutions to keep the conversation going. That is why our free to attend Virtual Summer Conference returns next month to generate debate and insights into the opportunities and risks that we face as the mortgage market emerges from the peak of the coronavirus crisis.
He added: “Excitingly, we are set to welcome many of the industry’s leading thinkers, who will be offering their views on just how advisers can get ahead over the coming months and beyond. Alongside our practical guidance for key decision makers, we are also taking an important look into areas like diversity and inclusion to explore ways that we can build a better mortgage sector for future generations.”
