About this event
Have you ever wanted to meet the legal professionals, Scottish Government ministers and public servants who define the Scottish lender landscape?
On 6th October the opportunity was provided to do just that at Aberdein Considine's Lender Services Conference, which this year was held in association with the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML).
The annual event - held in Edinburgh's unique Dynamic Earth venue, beside the Scottish Parliament - brought together the most important people in the lender services industry and examined the changing political and economic landscape in Scotland.
Delegates heard speakers from the Scottish Government, the Law Society of Scotland, Aberdein Considine and the CML.
The conference was chaired by Rob Aberdein, Partner in Charge of Lender Services at Aberdein Considine.
