Nigel Waterson, Chairman of the Equity Release Council, welcomes Aviva’s Rethinking Retirement Report 2013
“We are delighted that Aviva has chosen to endorse the Council’s call for the Government to define departmental ownership of equity release as part of its Rethinking Retirement Report. This common sense move is vital to help consumers make the best use of all their assets in retirement and would be a great step forward.
“This type of official state recognition would go a long way to dispelling the myths that continue to dog the industry and help older consumers to feel more comfortable accessing the value in their homes. We urge the Government to listen to the industry and take positive steps to ensure that this does happen.”
