Equity Release Council confirm MBE London seminars and panel debate

The Equity Release Council has announced it is holding seminars and a panel Q&A at Mortgage Business Expo (MBE) at the Barbican, London on 11th October.

The seminars, being held in the dedicated Later Life Lending Theatre, will be crucial for advisers and introducers to understand more about this growing sector of the finance market, in which lending could reach £3bn in 2017.

There will be expert presentations from Paul Saroya of Viva Retirement Solutions, Ray McCarthy of Later Life Academy and Peter Barton of Ashfords LLP. Topics covered will include the business opportunities for brokers, how brokers can find educational resources for equity release and the role of power of attorney.

A lunchtime panel Q&A will also be held from 12:30 and expert panellists include Nigel Waterson of the Equity Release Council, Dean Mirfin from Key Retirement, Tish Hanifan from the Society of Later Life Advisers, Steve Cox of Hodge Lifetime and Phil Carroll of Intrinsic.

These sessions at MBE London will focus on important topics and serve to help and guide advisers in this increasingly popular product sector, with a view to opening up new opportunities and developing their businesses.

Over 50 financial companies and industry bodies will be at MBE London and it is the longest established and the most well respected Expos, having held regular events in London for over 17 years.

Registration is now open and free for mortgage advisers and IFAs to book their places. They will have the opportunity to directly discuss finance and planning needs for their clients with major equity release brands such as Age Partnership, Pure Retirement, More2Life and Retirement Advantage.

Mike Mikunda, from MBE commented: “Equity release continues to be a popular finance option for many older homeowners, which in turn means there are many opportunities for advisers to get involved in this growing part of the market and the seminars and panel debate organised in conjunction with the Equity Release Council will help to further understanding of this sector.”

Donna Bathgate, Chief Operating Officer of the Equity Release Council said: “We are very pleased to be partnering with MBE London, to offer a variety of awareness raising and educational seminars for delegates. 2017 has seen total lending reaching almost £1.4bn in H1 2017, up from £0.9bn in H1 2016. If current trends continue, annual lending will reach £3bn for the first time by the end of 2017.  Furthermore, with equity release product options having tripled over the last decade, it is becoming ever more vital for consumers that all advisers and introducers are fully aware of the breadth offered by this growing sector.”
