The Economic Secretary to the Treasury, John Glen MP, has become the latest speaker to be confirmed at the inaugural Equity Release Summit.
The event, held in London on 12 March, is set to include main floor plenary sessions and interactive panel sessions.
Glen will join several other figures at Church House Westminster, including Sir Hector Sants and Rt Hon Damian Green.
Jim Boyd, chief executive officer at Equity Release Council, said: “It is our intention that the one-day summit will be the landmark equity release event in the industry’s calendar, growing and developing year-on-year in terms of impact, recognition and profile.
“We have already set ourselves an incredibly high bar in our inaugural year and the level of industry support and the calibre of the speakers and breakout sessions has exceeded our expectations.”
The summit follows last year’s council member survey in which a third of respondents said they would welcome opportunities to support council activities.
