Beyond Help to Buy - new ideas to support homeownership

21 March 2019, London

This half-day event will showcase some of the new housing schemes hitting the market over the next 12 months.

The UK’s housing crisis continues to ensure that many borrowers struggle to make the dream of homeownership a reality without assistance. The success of Help to Buy since 2013 has shown the valuable role housing schemes can play in helping people buy homes.

The latest figures up to June 2018 showing a whopping 183,947 properties bought with an equity loan since Help to Buy. But with the current scheme extended to 2022, private alternatives to Help to Buy and new types of products to assist both consumers and lenders are coming to market. 

Proposed content:

Proportunity -  A live alternative for Help to Buy, that isn't limited to new builds
This will be an opportunity to hear from FCA regulated lender and tech business Proportunity, which combines a private version of Help to Buy with cutting edge data science to help first-time buyers get on the housing ladder

Perenna - An alternative funding source to help societies provide 20 year+ fixed rate loans
Hear from a potential new funding source using covered bonds to provide long-term fixed-rate mortgages. With mortgage loans fixed for in excess of 20 years, higher income multiple lending can be provided responsibly, making homeownership a reality for many more UK consumers currently restricted by affordability rules. The firm is currently progressing through the regulatory approval process and this will be an early opportunity to talk through how it could partner with societies.

Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government
An opportunity to hear about the Government’s work in supporting homeownership. The Government will also be in attendance to talk through its future homeownership priorities and how lenders can play their part

This will be an interactive event, with sessions designed to allow attendees to ask questions and better understand new products before they come to market. 

Who is it for?
In terms of business leaders looking for new opportunities, the event will naturally appeal to heads of mortgage lending, heads of operations and c-suite executives. In terms of the session with Perenna and understanding a new funding source, it will also appeal to those in risk and treasury management.
