FIBA – which has emerged from the Association of Bridging Professionals (AOBP) – is hosting its inaugural annual conference on Wednesday (17th January) in London.
The Association’s existing membership has been traditionally aligned to the bridging and development sector and its wide range of lenders.
FIBA hopes this will form a strong base of support and the intention is to reach out and attract brokers, lenders and tertiary service providers involved in the specialist lending sector who have seen the benefits of the Association in the past.
Adam has joined FIBA having previously served as the chief executive of the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB).
“I am delighted to be joining FIBA and look forward to working with the executive committee, its partners and members in making it the kind of successful body towards which lenders and intermediaries from all sectors of the lending market will want to gravitate.
“FIBA’s objectives emphasise the focus on individual broker membership, rather than firm membership.
“We have structured our options to engage with and benefit the intermediaries themselves, providing valuable resource at an affordable cost.
“In summary, FIBA’s principal aim is to be a ‘broad church’ encompassing the whole of the market and, therefore, it looks forward to constructive dialogue with all stakeholders associated with the lending sector.
“My wish is to take the FIBA message to intermediaries and lenders across the finance sector and for FIBA to proactively represent all parts of the lending market.”
