James Prosser, managing director of Front Events, commented: “In three weeks we’ll be back at The Emirates – Old Trafford, celebrating the 5th FSE Manchester, after its launch back in 2014. Since then we’ve welcomed thousands of advisers to the show and we are once again looking forward to bringing all parts of the financial services community back together on the 16th May.

“Once again we’ve put together a strong seminar roster, with a particular focus on specialist lending areas such as later life, equity release and buy-to-let, but also looking at the residential market that exists in the North and how advisers can make the most of the opportunities there, particularly in sectors such as remortgaging, first-time buyers and the growth in portfolio/professional landlord purchasing. We have a number of lender experts in their field who will be imparting their knowledge to our delegates.

“We also look at the importance of GDPR to advisers and how they can make sure these regulations are embedded in their business, that they understand their responsibilities when it comes to client contact and marketing, and that they’re ready for the 25th May implementation date.

“FSE Manchester once again promises to be a very fruitful and rewarding day for all those advisers who attend, and with over 50 exhibitors on hand, they can not only learn from our seminar sessions but also network with all those representatives, who cover a wide range of businesses and sectors. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone in Manchester next month, and if you’re yet to register to attend, you can find all the details on our website.”
