Peter Barton of Ashford’s Solicitors, Peter Welch of Touchstone Equifax and Chris Prior of Bridgewater will be offering strategies for profile-raising at Bridgewater’s Equity Release Advice Masterclass in Bristol next month.
The speakers will also be looking behind the growing business levels equity release has seen throughout 2014 and help attendees understand where the growing demand is coming from and how they can put their services in the local shop window.
Bridgewater’s Bristol Masterclass will be held on Tuesday 18 November at Ashford’s Solicitors, Bristol Tower Wharf, Cheese Lane, Bristol BS2 0JJ.
The Masterclass will begin at 9.30am for a 10am start and will finish at 12.30pm. Lunch will be provided allowing delegates the opportunity to network with other advisers and speakers.
Chris Prior (pictured), manager of sales and distribution at Bridgewater Equity Release, said: “This is a changing time for both the equity release market and the retirement sector in particular with activity increasing and the demand for advice growing. The Government’s changes to pensions, the ‘interest-only time bomb’, the pullback in State support for retirees, plus the growing number of financial responsibilities for individuals, mean that more and more homeowners are looking at releasing equity from their property in order to meet their commitments.”
