UK homeowners release equity every 15 minutes

18 April 2018

According to recent research from SunLife, UK homeowners are releasing equity from their properties every 15 minutes. The property wealth in the UK is estimated around £4 trillion among the over-55s, and with the average sum of just over £100,000 being released, it is safe to say that equity release is growing at an exponential rate.

With this huge increase in popularity comes the requirement for professional, knowledgeable equity release advisers to ensure that consumers are being given the best service to make their own informed choice. Becoming an equity release adviser is a great way to build on your current skill set and will give you the ability to offer this highly sought-after advice to your current clients as well as opening to potentially new clients as well.
