General Insurance (GI) provider Paymentshield is hosting its first-ever live virtual conference that aims to help advisers to tackle the COVID-19 economic impact on the mortgage industry and return to growth.

Taking place on Wednesday 16 September, the ‘Our Changing World’ conference is designed to replicate the physical experience of an industry conference, albeit virtually.

The conference will feature industry experts from the mortgage, fintech, estate agency and general insurance markets, including speakers from Countrywide, e-Keeper, Rightmove, Mortgage Advice Bureau, Auxilium Partnership Group, HL Partnership, iPipieline, Mortgage Intelligence, Openwork, Property Franchise Group, Quilter Financial Planning, SBG, Sesame Network, SimplyBiz Mortgages, Smartr365 and Spicerhaart.

Mortgage advisers have lost out on £47.8m through missed home insurance sales

Topics being discussed range from: the impact of COVID-19; research, analysis and predictions in the property market from the UK’s biggest estate agents; how advisers can leverage technology; how Paymentshield is evolving its customer services strategy to help increase new business and customer retention for advisers and best practice for implementing GI specialists to ensure advisers do not miss out on the GI opportunity

Rob Evans, Paymentshield CEO, said: “This is the first time in twelve years Paymentshield has hosted its own conference, but the timing couldn’t be more important.

“We have assembled experts from across the country in the key industries with one aim: to create a supportive community that helps advisers adapt, thrive and return to growth.

We are really pushing the boundaries of the capabilities of virtual conferencing, using the Hopin platform to make the event as interactive and collaborative as possible.

“With opportunities to sit in on panel discussion, network with fellow attendees and ask questions we’re bringing you the full conference experience, but from the comfort of your home or office.”
