Age Partnership launches face-to-face advice proposition

Retirement advice firm Age Partnership is expanding its proposition by introducing a face-to-face advice.

The firm currently gives advice over the phone but it plans to recruit a number of field-based advisers across the UK over the course of the year.

It has appointed Sara Robinson, who has spent the last five years as a regional manager at Key Retirement Solutions, as its new field sales manager.

Sales and marketing director Dan Baines says: “Whilst we remain wholeheartedly committed to the telephone-based advice service from which many thousands of customers have already benefited, we feel that the time is right to expand our equity release proposition with the addition of a number of field-based advisers who share our passion for delighting customers.”

The equity release market totalled just over £1bn in 2013, 4 per cent higher than the £961m released in 2012, according to Key Retirement Solutions.
