The SimplyBiz Group has partnered with Just Group to offer its members exclusive access to a referral service offering equity release advice, retirement income planning, and care funding advice called HUB Referral Solutions (HUB).
HUB is built and powered by Just, a broker of guaranteed income for life solutions. Members can refer clients to the HUB, which has a specialist team of advisers.
Gary Kershaw, compliance director of The SimplyBiz Group, said: “There will always be certain product areas in which advisers either can’t or don’t want to operate.
“This could be down to not holding the relevant permissions or qualifications, not having the right resource, sufficient time, or simply because it’s an area in which they would just prefer not to be involved.
“HUB Referral Solutions will help advisers enhance the range of services they offer, meaning they can meet more of their clients’ needs.”
Stephen Lowe, group communications director at Just Group, added: “We are delighted to offer members of SimplyBiz a new referral service from our group business, HUB Financial Solutions.
“The new service enables firms to offer regulated advice and guidance services spanning a wide range of retirement services including retirement income, equity release and long term care funding to existing clients and to new enquirers.”
