Skipton Talks

This special edition of Skipton Talks we ask…

Is it time for a shake up?

With all the challenges the mortgage industry has faced over the last year, we discuss whether it will take evolution or revolution to help more people get on to the ladder…and stay there.

From the lender who brought you the 100% Track Record mortgage, this session will explore why it’s so important to listen to the mood music, and why innovation is nothing without bravery.

Our panel:

Charlotte Harrison, CEO of Home Financing
Jen Lloyd, Head of Products and Propositions
Sam Hutchinson, Senior Credit Risk Manager


3.00 PM
