From 1st July the Council of Mortgage Lenders is integrated into a new trade association, UK Finance. For the time being, all UKF mortgage information will continue to be published on this website, and UKF member-only mortgage information will only be available here.

UK Finance represents around 300 firms in the UK providing credit, banking, markets and payment-related services. The new organisation takes on most of the activities previously carried out by the Asset Based Finance Association, the British Bankers’ Association, the Council of Mortgage Lenders, Financial Fraud Action UK, Payments UK and the UK Cards Association. Please go to for wider content and updates from UK Finance.

We run a variety of events, including conferences, seminars, masterclasses, lunches, dinners and other networking events, all of which firms can support through sponsorship.

Our events are designed to get the mortgage industry together to discuss the topics that are most relevant to them. We place a strong emphasis on the value networking potential at events, enabling attendees to forge strong business relationships as well as examine significant industry issues. Marketing campaigns for each of our events are seen by 5000 + contacts, and our flagship annual lunch and dinner alone attract over 500 and 1000 attendees respectively.
