Episode 1: Broker versus regulator – second charge mortgages

Join Alex Hammond – director, SquareOne Media, Stewart Simpson – second charge mortgage specialist, Brightstar and Caroline Mirakian – sales director, Optimum Credit, as they discuss what is causing brokers to avoid proactively writing second charge mortgages. Is it education or culture?

This episode brings the discussion around whether regulators should be doing more to ensure brokers are presenting their clients with the option of second charge mortgages following MCD.

The panel also share their experiences of how second charges can be more widely useful than ever following the pandemic and how one broker was able to use one to help a family struggling with debts and improve their financial situation significantly.
