Key Retirement Solutions unveils referral proposition

Key Retirement Solutions has launched a new equity release referral proposition.

Key has for a considerable number of years handled referrals from individuals, firms and networks as well as building societies.

Having carried out research of the experiences of these groups and organisations Key tasked itself with redefining its service.

It has clarified its core selling points to existing and potential partners.

One development is the ability to segment payments to organisations where this is required so that simultaneous payments both to a network or organisation can be made and to the originating individual or firm.

This being the subject of much publicity recently where network members are waiting for payments from their network.

Paul Wilson, group director of KRS, says: “Our ultimate aim is to make the referral proposition to partners of any size one which is slick and efficient. The recent re defining of the proposition and how it is delivered is allowing us to increase efficiency and at the same time increase the number of referrals we generate and are able to handle.

“The greatest gain for partners is that we are able to offer increased commission levels which, with our core selling points, stands us well ahead of the crowd.”
