The Equity Release Council has refreshed its ‘Adviser Guide to Equity Release’ which is aimed at encouraging new entrants into the market and support existing advisers.
The popular document supports high standards of advice and good consumer outcomes and is available by completing the form below.
The guide reflects the evolution of the market, where product choice has expanded to over 500 options with a growing range of features, protections and guarantees.
The update captures the latest industry and regulatory feedback to promote consistent advice for consumers, along with related developments in later life lending products.
It has been informed by a series of adviser roadshows, hosted by co-authors Pure Retirement, where attendees requested the new sections on business development.
It complements other Council resources such as the Competency Framework and Checklist for Advisers to help firms to operate in line with its standards, rules and guidance.
