About this event

The Association will be stepping up to the crease for our annual NACFB Patrons Day hosted at Lord’s Cricket Ground on Wednesday 11th September.

We’re inviting representatives from all our Patron lenders to join us for an afternoon of updates on the broker market, the NACFB’s activities and guidance on how to make the most of your patronage. The day’s full agenda is outlined below.

The keynote address will be delivered by Philip Collins, who is a columnist and leader writer for The Times. He is also chairman of the board of trustees at the independent think tank Demos. Before joining The Times he was the chief speech writer for the prime minister, Tony Blair, the director of the Social Market Foundation think tank, and an equity strategist at two investment banks.

The event will start at 1pm with a light buffet lunch and will conclude at 5pm with a networking reception.

This is a non-broker event and is free for all NACFB Patrons to attend.
