11.40 Panel – Equity Release:
The equity release market is booming, with the Equity Release Councils’ figures showing a 24% increase in the third quartile of 2018 compared with 2017. There’s no sign of a slowdown ahead: 2.6 million interest-only mortgages are due for repayment within the next 30 years with up to half estimated to be facing a shortfall. With 7 out of 10 of these borrowers over the age of 45, equity release products will likely be the solution for many. Our speaker will crunch the numbers and consider the opportunities for advisers.
