Retirement Plus has today launched a new website to educate consumers about equity release in the UK.
The need for the website, www.whatisequityrelease.com, was identified while Retirement Plus was developing a generic website for a charity group specialising in housing issues for the elderly.
Retirement Plus says the site includes information on what equity release products are available in the UK, answers questions frequently asked by consumers and will also give suggestions on where consumers can access specialist, independent advice.
The site aims to manage customer expectations of what a financial adviser will be able to do for them, as well as telling them what information their adviser will need to assess their suitability for a product.
Duncan Young, CEO of Retirement Plus, comments: “Our success with the development of a generic equity release website for the Elderly Accommodation Council strongly identified the need for a website such as www.whatisequityrelease.com.
“This website will help brokers with their need to educate and inform their clients and highlights our dedication to provide the equity release market with impartial, clear information.”
Brokers who would like to link to the website should email [email protected].
