How could equity release help you?
With life expectancy continuing to increase, dwindling pension pots and the rising cost of living, equity release could prove versatile in helping you meet a range of financial needs before, at and during retirement.
For many people their home is probably their biggest financial asset, far outweighing any savings and income. A popular way to tap into this wealth is through an equity release plan.
Homeowners aged 55 years old or over could benefits from tax-free cash, whilst in most cases, continue to own their own home¹.
