The Financial Intermediary & Broker Association (FIBA) has launched an extensive range of benefits that members can now access online.
The FIBA member benefits package aims to provide support in all areas relevant to a broker’s business life and the trade body believes that its compliance solutions are second to none.
The advantages include exclusive business premises insurance and discounted intelligent reporting software, as well as access to client verification platform SmartSearch.
Housed in an easy-to-use hub, members can explore a range of services and tools that will meet their day-to-day business needs.
There is also a section dedicated to GDPR to help advisers tackle the recent regulatory changes and keep themselves informed during the early days of implementation and beyond.
There is a dedicated lender partners directory, which makes it easier for members to find FIBA-accredited funders and reduce brokers’ sourcing times.
Adam Tyler, executive chairman at FIBA (pictured above), said that from its launch, the trade body aimed to support financial professionals within the UK, enabling them to deliver the right solutions and service 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.”
Adam added that FIBA’s benefits package would 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 also significantly help to boost productivity and professionalism.
“As a member of FIBA, you will have the tools to be the best you can be as well as having a voice that shapes our industry’s future.”
More unique benefits are due to be rolled out in the coming weeks.
