SimplyBiz Mortgages has announced that its inaugural BTL Conference will be taking place on the 5th October in Borehamwood, North London.
Running under the ‘Mortgage Showcase’ umbrella, the Conference will bring together some of the biggest names in the BTL market to provide thought-leadership, ideas, and guidance on key topics in the market.
The event will be opened by Damian Thompson, Director of Landlord at the Mortgage Works, who will outline where next for the BTL market. This will be followed by an Oxford Style debate between David Whittaker, CEO of Keystone Property Finance and Steve Cox, CCO of Fleet Mortgages, around the current funding models available in the BTL market and their long-term sustainability.
There will be panel sessions looking at the market from the view of the adviser, the landlord, the lender, and the tax adviser, as well as delving into how BTL crosses into the commercial property market.
Other well-known industry speakers on the panels will be Leigh Church, Head of BM Solutions, Adrian Moloney, Group Intermediary Director – OSB, Mike Cook, Chief Mortgage Officer at MFS as well as advisers, surveyors, and trade bodies like NRLA. In addition, there will be over 15 lenders and ancillary providers exhibiting.
The event will run from 10.00am until 2.45pm and is open to any adviser in the market, whether AR or DA who wants to get a better understanding on where the BTL market is going.

Commenting on the new event Martin Reynolds, CEO of SimplyBiz Mortgages, said: “The team first had this idea 18 months ago when the BTL market was still very vibrant, as they felt that it was still a key area for improving knowledge and have been working on the event since then. With where the market has moved over the last 12 months, I believe that the information available on the day makes it an even more important time to catch up on where the market is going from the stellar list of industry speakers.”
David Whittaker, CEO of Keystone Property Finance, – and headline sponsor – added: “Once again, the team at SimplyBiz Mortgages is challenging the norm and creating new ideas and content. The idea of a BTL Conference is both highly relevant and timely. I cannot wait to get into the debates, and I really look forward to the ‘pearls of wisdom’ from my industry peers. I would urge as many advisers as possible to attend.”
