Broker Insights Event

A few weeks ago, our Director of Business Development, Paul Fenn held our first ever Broker Insights event in Leeds. As well as an introduction to Paul, it was a chance for us to meet some of you, showcase our future plans and answer some of your questions.

Between a variety of key speakers from Skipton Building Society and a panel of industry experts, we covered a lot of ground - from wider trends in the mortgage market and changes in consumer behaviour, to our thoughts on how to connect customers and brokers digitally in the future.

Alex Beavis, Head of Mortgage Products, also took to the stage to discuss the wider trends in the mortgage market, how we’ve seen lenders respond and what we might expect to see in the future – both specifically from Skipton and the market in general.

Our insightful panel session with Jane Benjamin from Sesame Bankhall; Danny Belton from Legal and General; David Hollingworth from L&C; and Adrian Scott from Connells was also a great success.

We also gathered lots of feedback too – most of it positive, with a few areas of challenge we’ll certainly be looking at. You liked that we were ‘innovative’ and have aspirations to be a top ten lender.

It was great to meet so many new faces and find out first-hand what you think about Skipton Intermediaries. It’s reassuring that we’re doing so many things right, but also helps us focus our thinking about improvements for the future. I really enjoyed sharing our plans with you and hope that our first ever Broker Insights event won’t be our last.

It is undeniable that the world is changing more rapidly than ever. I am really looking forward to better understanding how together we can shape the future to help more people own their own homes.

Skipton is in a good place to seize the opportunities available, to continue to grow our market share, and to fulfil our purpose.
