Key Retirement joins SMP roadshows to promote equity release
Key Retirement Group is to highlight opportunities in the equity release market as part of six free roadshows taking place across the UK.

The over-55s finance specialist will be taking part in mortgage and protection roadshows run by the Society of Mortgage Professionals.

Key will focus on the core trends driving growth in the equity release market, which hit a record £2.1bn last year, and outlining the benefits for clients of underwriting.

Speakers from group companies including advisers Key Retirement and referral business Key Partnerships will also help advisers identify business opportunities, whether they are directly advising clients or referring business to specialists.

In addition, the roadshow programme includes an FCA regulatory update as well as sessions on the mortgage and protection markets and the future for whole of life policies.

Dean Mirfin, technical director at Key Retirement, said: “The equity release market has broken through the £2bn barrier for the first time and more than doubled in value in just five years, highlighting how important property wealth now is for retirement planning. The SMP roadshows are an ideal platform for advisers to develop their businesses and hear from a wide range of market experts.”

The roadshows will take place on 7 March in Durham, 8 March in Manchester, 13 March in Brighton, 16 March in London, 21 March in Northern Ireland and 23 March in Bristol. Advisers should email for more information and to book a free place.
