Marketing and regulation key issues at first Broker Breakfast Forum

Marketing to potential equity release clients and regulation of the sector are the key issues for today’s advisers, according to feedback from the first Broker Breakfast Forum held by Bridgewater Equity Release.

Increasing revenue by tapping into the growing equity release market was a primary concern for delegates who attended the first in a series of forums, the first of which was held in Newcastle earlier this month.

Advisers were also keen to discuss the regulation surrounding home reversion plans, as well as potentially regulating Sale and Rent Back schemes.

Andrew Dixon, from Bridgewater Equity Release, says: “We are delighted with the feedback received from those advisers who attended.

“There are a number of misconceptions about equity release and home reversion plans, and we sought to dispel these and educate advisers on when the plans are an appropriate solution to those looking to release equity.”

The next forum is due to take place in Swindon on Tuesday 18th March.
