Offering flexibility and a variety of options to help you design personalised solutions for each client, a need highlighted by the FCA’s review of equity release sales and advice process.

Managing build-up of debt

  • Servicing interest

Clients with surplus income every month could benefit from interest servicing and a potential reduction to the roll-up interest rate.

  • Paying up to 10% advance ERC-free each year

Or, clients choosing not to service monthly interest can pay up to 10% of each advance in every 12 month policy period without incurring any Early Repayment Charges (ERC).

  • Using cashback to borrow less

Our cashback can help clients reduce the loan amount needed (and so the LTV), which could mean a lower interest rate.

Getting a better LTV

Clients wanting to maximise their borrowing could qualify for a higher loan to value (LTV), based on their health and lifestyle.

Or, they could use our J6 LTV series to access one of the highest releases in the market without medical underwriting.

Maximising funds available

Clients wanting to access as much money as possible may be interested in our flexible cashback options, paid in addition to the LTV.

Alternatively, cashback can be used to reduce the size of loan required.
