Although we continue to deliver record annual figures for our lending, we have decided to take our people and our products on tour once again. Following our success last year with our lender’s listen and lunch events, we will be announcing our programme shortly, but the first is just two weeks away.

After a very successful event in York, our next Lender’s Listen and Lunch is at The Ivy, Winchester on Wednesday 17 January, starting at 1pm and lasting until you’ve had enough of us. We’ll also be around for drinks afterwards, for anyone who has projects to discuss.

We are always happy for one-to-one appointments and a quick coffee, but we believe we can better explain our approach to short-term property finance, by meeting in relaxed surroundings, whilst enjoying a superb lunch and a drink – there’s plenty of soft drinks for those following dry-January.

Eschewing the typical sales pitch, we offer an entertaining talk by our brand ambassador, two-code Wales and British & Irish Lions rugby legend, Scott Quinnell, with a few words from our relationship manager to welcome attendees.

We usually have a local broker client on hand to tell you why they like the way we do business, but there is no hard-sell from the Signature team. Brokers are always pleased to meet the senior team from Signature, with CEO Tony and COO Thomas there with me to answer any funding questions.

It’s good to talk, but better to listen

We call them Lender’s Listen and Lunch, because as much as we want you to be entertained by our brand ambassador, we want to hear what you want from lenders like Signature, hoping a good lunch with wine will bring out the truth.

Our continuing success is based on the strength of the personal relationships we build with our clients and we believe this approach will help us find more brokers who value certainty of funding and efficient deal processes with an in-house legal team, more than low rates.

If you would like to join us for lunch in Winchester later this month, please get in touch with me via email and we’ll add your name to our guest list. We do not need anything from you on the day, other than a good appetite and your opinions.

We’ll be announcing more locations and more dates soon, if Winchester or the date don’t work for you this time. Please keep an eye on our website for further announcements.
