Equity Release Supermarket launches its own academy to develop future talent
Independent broker Equity Release Supermarket has launched its own academy aimed at developing future talent, following the appointment of Ryan Mansell as academy and development manager.


Joining from Age Partnership where he was academy manager, in his new role Mansell will be recruiting and nurturing new talent within the industry, as well as supporting Equity Release Supermarket’s existing specialist advisers with training.

The company said as the need for more dedicated equity release advice is required, setting up a specialist academy is the next natural step to ensure that quality of advice is maintained as the business expands its national network of advisers.

The academy’s programme will attract new experienced equity release advisers who want to develop their skills and inexperienced advisers who strive to achieve excellence during their academy experience.

Head of compliance Graham Evans confirmed that the company has recruited its first trainee equity release adviser – Joshua Adekoya – who will complete training over  a 12-month period.

Evans confirmed that the company will fully support him with the completion of enhanced qualifications after he joins the company on the 10 September. Evans also confirmed that Mark Gregory will be sharing Joshua’s progress via a dedicated blog on the company’s website.

Graham Evans, said the equity release marketplace is evolving at such a pace that is becoming increasingly difficult to find qualified equity release specialists that meet the high standards of advice.

He added: “We are delighted to secure the service of Ryan Mansell as our academy and development manager as the Academy will allow us to nurture new talent as they gain their specialist knowledge.

“Ryan will also be able to support our existing advisers to maintain their excellent product knowledge and expertise as new lenders with innovative new products enter the marketplace.”
