The first CFA conference took place in Birmingham last week. The day went well, and we had a full agenda for attendees.
Attendance came mostly from CFA members (lenders, brokers and associates), but we were also joined by other lenders and those providing specialist services. The varied range of delegates made for some interesting discussions in both the exhibition hall and the conference fringes.
In the main hall, there was a mix of key note speeches and panel sessions. We were delighted to have both the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) present to delegates. The Illegal Money Lending Unit also provided an eye-opening update on their work.
Panel sessions saw a mix of lenders other professionals sharing insights on topics such as technology and fraud.
The night before we also enjoyed dinner, sponsored which was a great opportunity to catch up and network in a more relaxed in environment.
Lastly, we must thank all our sponsors, speakers and exhibitors again.
