Age Partnership technical manager Simon Chalk says:
"We will be moving into lending and we are looking to launch later this year with a product which we intend to make available to the wider intermediary community.We hope to become the tenth provider this year in this sector."
Chalk joined Age Partnership, from Bower Retirement, earlier this month as technical director.
