Buckinghamshire Building Society has signed a contract with Key Partnerships to give its customers access to specialist advice.
Equity release referral service, Key Partnerships, has reported a 46% year-on-year increase in adviser enquiries in H1 2018.
Jason Ruse, head of partnerships at Key Retirement (pictured above), said: “The interest in the equity release market is growing rapidly.
“We are seeing increasing numbers of consumers trying to access independent regulated advice about equity release products as they consider their later life lending needs.
“This partnership with Buckinghamshire Building Society means that their customers can now deal with a brand they trust – secure in the knowledge that if equity release advice is right for them, they will be referred to a trusted partner.”
Tim Vigeon, head of lending at Buckinghamshire Building Society, added: “We know that borrowing when you are older is a decision that needs to be considered carefully.
“Increasingly, customers are looking at borrowing in later life and this partnership means any customer who enquires about equity release or has been identified as potentially benefitting from this option can be referred onto Key’s independent specialist advisers.”
