Key Retirement Group is expanding its support for advisers building businesses in later life lending and equity release by extending its backing of the Financial Services Expo.
The equity release and later life lending market delivered record-breaking growth of nearly £1bn in 2017.
Key Retirement is highlighting the challenges and opportunities of this market at the first FSE event of the year at the Doubletree by Hilton in Glasgow on the 13 March.
Stuart Wilson, channel marketing director at KR Group, is participating in a later life lending panel, giving an overview of lending to older borrowers and the current opportunities in the sector.
It will be the opening seminar at FSE Glasgow which will also feature sessions on the new build sector, GDPR and the specialist lending market from both a lender and broker’s perspective.
Wilson said: “Older borrowers need a greater range of options to choose from and advisers can help provide the flexibility they require as the equity release market continues to deliver record-breaking growth.
“We are committed to supporting a stronger, better connected industry and want to help advisers – those specialising in this space as well as those who want to refer clients to specialist firms – to build their own businesses.”
After exhibiting regularly at adviser events in 2017, FSE Glasgow is the first in a series of events this year that Key will be backing as it continues its support into 2018.
Representatives from group companies, including Key Retirement’s referral service, Key Partnerships and lender More2Life will be in attendance with experts on hand to support intermediaries.
Sessions start from 10am and run until 2:45pm and all attendees will earn Chartered Insurance Institute CPD points for attending seminars.
