The Financial Intermediary & Broker Association has launched a new range of benefits that members can access online.
Designed to provide holistic support in all areas relevant to a broker’s business life, FIBA’s member benefits package includes exclusive business premises insurance and discounted intelligent reporting software, as well as access to client verification platform SmartSearch.
Via an easy-to-use hub, members can explore a range of services and tools aimed at meeting their day-to-day business needs and helping them to enhance and add value to their offering.
GDPR has its own section to help advisers tackle the recent regulatory changes and keep themselves informed during the early days of implementation and beyond.
There is also a dedicated lender partners directory designed to make finding FIBA-accredited funders easy, cutting down brokers’ sourcing times.
Adam Tyler, executive chairman of FIBA, said: “Our aim is to support finance professionals within the UK, enabling them to deliver the right solutions and services to their clients while meeting their regulatory obligations. We proudly hold this as our mission statement, and the way we achieve this is by supporting our members with the right benefits for their businesses.
“In addition, we wanted to provide access to a comprehensive network of lenders, detailed product knowledge, industry expert advice and dedicated compliance resources backed by relevant training, guidance and assistance.
“The member benefits area on the FIBA website is packed full of important support and information for both the business and personal development of our members. Our benefits package will continue to evolve throughout the year, with new enhancements being added all the time.
“Whether advisers are experienced finance practitioners or coming to business finance for the first time, these services and benefits offer tremendous value when put against the membership fee and will help significantly to boost productivity and professionalism. As a member of FIBA you will have the tools to be the best that you can be, as well as having a voice that shapes our industry’s future.”
