Designed with market participants in mind, it will highlight the key trends and themes in public affairs, economics, regulation and financing that affect brokers and the SMEs they work with.

The hub includes an events section that highlights a full list of economic and market events for the asset finance industry, as well as access to a range of CPD-accredited training sessions, hosted by Investec, to support brokers’ ongoing professional development.

In addition, it will provide reference guides on the variety of products available to brokers, including rates and credit guidelines, and case studies about how Investec partners with its brokers.

Stuart Hughes, head of broker sales, said: “At Investec, our priority is our brokers and the launch of Broker Insights shows that we are committed to making their lives as easy as possible.

“By creating a website that houses the most relevant information under the same roof, brokers will have the essential insights they need at their fingertips.”
