Demand for equity release qualifications rising
9 January 2017
The London Institute of Banking and Finance advised that registrations for its Certificate in Regulated Equity Release qualification has increased by over a quarter in the last year. Launched in 2006, the equity release qualification, known as CeRER®, gives mortgage advisers the ability to offer further assistance to their clients with guidance on releasing the equity within their property.
With changes in the economy, rising house prices and low state pensions, home owners are favouring equity release products to help top up their pensions while still being able to retain their property. As property is generally the biggest financial commitment in a person’s lifetime, being able to release capital from your home while still residing there with no need to sell up and move is giving many homeowners a wider scope for the future, but like all financial investments, it is imperative that when looking for assistance with this process, that you enlist the help of a qualified adviser who can offer the most thorough guidance and advice to suit your needs.
With such a large increase in registrations for this sought after qualification, advisers should be looking to ensure that they are studying for the CeRER® qualification with a reputable and approved course provider. Consisting of two units which make up a bolt on module to the CeMAP qualification, the 1 day classroom-based CeRER course is taught by our experienced tutors and teamed with our LIBF approved training materials, giving students the best possible training to complete the qualification.
