We were part of the well attended launch of FIBA this week, at which heard from some excellent speakers, however, our clear favourite was our very own Jordan McBriar.
Chairman Adam Tyler opened the proceedings, followed by and interesting few minutes from the primary supporter, The SimplyBiz Group.
Michael Saunders, a member of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee, delivered the keynote address, followed by an explanation of the changes made to the organisation and its rebrand to FIBA.
Later on, two panels tackled the subjects competition in the bridging finance industry and the other looking at the opportunities in store for the wider UK lending market in 2018.
Lenders Octopus Property, Masthaven, West One Loans, Together and Market Financial Solutions provided their expertise to the first panel, whilst the second group featured Ortus Secured Finance, Assetz Capital, OakNorth Bank and CG & Co.
All but one of the ADAPT team attended the event – L-R Graham Ball, Mark McBriar, Jordan McBriar, Stephen Burns, Luis McBriar.
