The ‘Brexit and Bridging’ conference takes place at Painters’ Hall in the City of London on 14 September. It will celebrate the recent successes of the bridging industry and discuss what attendees can do to ensure that their businesses are prepared for the range of political challenges Brexit might bring.

Rob Lankey, former CEO of the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) and ex-managing director of commercial mortgages at Aldermore, will be speaking alongside Michael Booth, barrister at New Square Chambers. The duo will join keynote speaker Tim Shipman, Sunday Times political editor.

Benson Hersch, chief executive of the ASTL, said: "The bridging industry is going through a period of success and growth, but that does not mean we can afford to ignore the range of challenges that the current economic and political environment are presenting.

"This line up of speakers will provide attendees with an unrivalled selection of experience, insight and analysis from across the regulatory, legal and political landscape to tackle these challenges."
