We find that most professionals that we speak with about later life mortgage situations fall into 3 categories, these are:
Many financial advisors and accountants that we speak with do not offer advice or work closely with any referral partners in the later life lending space.
As a country, we have an aging population which brings new challenges along with new opportunities. With consumer duty in mind, to provide holistic financial advice your older clients you’ll need to have knowledge and provide direction as to what later life lending products are available in the market.
We offer a truly independent offering with a seamless advice process specifically tailored to older borrowers.
A dabbler will often be an experienced mortgage broker that does a handful of retirement mortgages per year servicing their existing client bank.
For clients aged 50 to 70 years, there is a big crossover of mortgage products that are available in the market and it’s changing all the time with regulation and innovation.
Are you confident that your client is receiving the right advice? If there is any doubt, we can provide you and your client with protection and peace of mind.
Often, mortgage brokers, financial advisors or accountants have existing later life referral partners in place.
With the consumer duty rules in mind, are you sure that your current referral partner is considering all the later life lending solutions available for your client?
Maybe your current referral partner is a ‘dabbler’ themselves or unresponsive to you and your clients calls and emails.
Also, we see a lot of referral pages or websites that just relate to the equity release products and the amount of referral commission that you can earn from sending them a deal. The FCA is very clear on the fact that many clients have decided that equity release is the answer for them before seeking advice. We ensure that those preconceptions are challenged and that all the options are fully considered.
