Professional Partners

We all know as Brokers how important it becomes to being able to meet your clients' requirements with speed, but the most resounding causes of delays in completing a specialist property transaction is the speed at which the buyer's solicitor can operate. We also know the Lenders have the right legal team in place and it is equally as important that your customer’s solicitor can match their timing and have the knowledge required to keep pace with this type of property transaction.

This stage is just a one of a number of important elements in a specialist property transaction, but one where experience and knowledge is an essential. Having the right professionals engaged in the process is therefore highly important, particularly where there may be complexities and the inevitable need for speed in the transaction. As a FIBA Member, you have access to an exclusive Professional Panel consisting of committed partners, largely legal professionals, who are experienced in specialist property finance, which you and your clients can rely on to bring your business to the right conclusion.

We want to support the Industry

We are keen to engage in discussion with Partners who can bring a level of professionalism and expertise to support our expanding Member base. It is our aim to speak with one voice for the industry and beyond and in return, you will have access to a wide and diverse membership consisting of brokers and intermediaries from across the broad financial sector.

FIBA is dedicated to the support of all professional finance intermediaries. We recognise that these individuals often work singularly and need an organisation that is relevant to today's market and ready to represent them. Serving the professional, commercial, and regulatory needs of our Members is why we exist. Our membership covers residential mortgage intermediaries, commercial finance brokers, and Independent Financial Advisers and it is also our intention to provide every assistance possible to those who are new to the broker world, that are the future of our industry.

As a Professional Partner, you will become part of our Professional Partners Panel where your services will be promoted within the Member area of our site in a dedicated section and you will be able to participate in our regular regional events programme as well as at our Annual Conference, details of which can be found on our events pages.

Our Professional Partner package is designed to give you access to the Broker and Intermediary community that need to refer their customers with confidence to a firm that understands the needs and requirements of our Industry. As a Partner with access to the whole membership, you can:
