Upcoming Event: June 12th at 9.00am – Understanding Equity Release and How it Can Help You to Educate Your Clients.
The demand for equity release has been growing exponentially, cementing its position in mainstream financial services as a crucial source of finance in later life. According to the Financial Times, UK homeowners aged 55 and over extract more than £10m of tax-free cash from their properties every day!
The steady growth of the equity release market is, in part, the result of product innovation and increased flexibility; providing more options to suit individual requirements. For example, drawdown lifetime mortgages have proved to be one of the most popular product types available.
However, with increased demand comes the need for tighter regulation, enhanced knowledge, skills and experience. The Equity Release Council has recognised the need for a new competency framework to guide and support industry professionals in delivering an effective service to consumers. Similarly, Personal Retirement Planning is proactively supporting the initiative by educating financial intermediaries on equity release, so they are better equipped to have conversations with their clients.
On June 12th we will be hosting a breakfast briefing event in London sponsored by Pure Retirement to educate professional introducers on the fundamentals of equity release so they can educate their clients.
