The Later Life Lending Network, the specialist equity release & later life lending arm of The Right Mortgage & Protection Network, has partnered with Answers in Retirement Group.
AIR Group is a collective of companies covering a range of retirement and later life services, all of which are now available to the networks’ later life advisers.
Stuart Wilson, chief executive officer of Answers In Retirement Group, said: “During our discussions with Martin and the team at TRM, it became very apparent that a clear objective was to support and develop bespoke training for TRM members to allow them to be at the forefront of the sector.
“This was coupled with a requirement for a simple-to-use sourcing tool that covers all equity release and RIO providers, allowing detailed filtering.
“We are delighted to have been able to provide this solution with access to our range of training courses, our later life expertise within the group, and a white-labelled version of our award-winning AiR Sourcing with full API functionality.
“We are looking forward to working with TRM and its management team to greatly broaden the network’s offering to its later life advisers.”
As part of this new partnership, TRM members will be provided with an exclusive white-labelled version of AIR Group’s sourcing system, AIR Sourcing. The sourcing system covers all available equity release and retirement lending products, while building a compliance audit.
TRM later life members will also have access to a range of training events via AIR Group’s Later Life Academy, the commercial and training organisation for later life advisers, as well as The Equity Release Club, the platform for equity release and later life advisers.
Currently, TRM has close to 50 later life advisers operating within The Later Life Lending Network and is seeking to grow its presence within the sector.
Martin Wilson, chief executive of The Right Mortgage & Protection Network, added: “We launched The Later Life Lending Network last year to show how serious the network is about the equity release industry.
“Our partnership with AIR Group helps us in providing our membership with the best possible tools to help them grow their businesses. We look forward to growing our relationship with AIR Group in years to come.”
Adam Stretton, managing director of The Right Mortgage & Protection Network, said: “AIR Group’s solution is great for our members; they not only supply an easy-to-use and intuitive sourcing system, but also a robust training programme that sits alongside it.”
