Broker Equity Release Supermarket has made several new hires and plans to launch a mobile app later this year, as it marks its 10th anniversary.
The broker, founded by Mark Gregory (pictured) in 2008, has recruited Kevin Murphy as its first business data analyst.
Earlier this year, the firm hired Dom Wilkinson as its first marketing director. Both hires have joined from fellow equity release broker Key, formerly Key Retirement.
Additional advisers have also been recruited, resulting in workforce growth of 18 per cent this year to date.
Stating that it is on track for a record year with sales growth of 40 per cent in H1, the broker is planning further growth with the launch a mobile app later this year; a first for the equity release market.
The planned app will allow customers to access Equity Release Supermarket’s online portal to track their application.
Gregory says: “The market is growing at a staggering pace as people understand the benefits of equity release. We are proud to have become a leading independent broker in just 10 years. As the market grows and matures it will be interesting to see what the next 10 years bring.”
