The first forum will be held in Altrincham on Wednesday 22nd June at the Grainger plc offices, St John’s House, Barrington Road, Altrincham, Cheshire WA14 1TJ. The London forum will be held the next day, Thursday 23rd June, at the DWF LLP offices, Capital House, 85 King William Street, London EC4N 7BL.
Both broker forums begin with networking from 10am for a 10.30am start. The meetings conclude at 12.30pm followed by lunch and finish at 1pm.
Bridgewater says the forums from are designed to provide equity release advisers and those looking to enter the sector, with an opportunity to discuss a wide range of related issues in an informal setting. Experienced Bridgewater staff chair the meetings and are on hand to offer information and support about a variety of equity release-related topics, particularly on the opportunities within the home reversion market. All subjects under discussion are determined by the assembled Group.
Peter Welch, head of sales and distribution at Bridgewater Equity Release, said: “As we motor into June Bridgewater continues to travel around the country with our two events taking place in Altrincham and London. These two gatherings will be the last forums before we break for the summer and we hope equity release advisers in the North West and South East take the time to attend what is always an energetic and lively few hours of debate and discussion.
“Bridgewater staff, as always, will be on hand to lead proceedings and to provide a range of information and support to those who may either be seasoned professionals or new to the world of equity release advice. Given that it is the half-year point, these forums give us a strong opportunity to review the equity release market over the past six months and to look ahead at how advisers can continue to generate strong business levels for the rest of the year.”
