Saffron Building Society has signed an exclusive contract with Key Partnerships which will give its existing and new customers access to specialist financial advice.
Key Partnerships provides an equity release referral service via Key — an independent equity release adviser.
“The interest in the later life lending market is growing rapidly and as part of this we are seeing an increased number of consumers trying to access information and advice on equity release products as they consider their later life lending requirements,” said Jason Ruse, head of Key Partnerships (pictured above).
“This partnership is great news as it means that customers can approach a building society they trust for support with their later life lending needs — safe in the knowledge that Saffron has found a trusted partner who will support them through the equity release advice process, if this is right for them.”
Colin Field, CEO at Saffron Building Society, added: “We are aware that borrowing when you are older is a decision that needs to be considered carefully, so we are delighted to be able to offer our customers access to market-leading equity release advice from Key Partnerships.”
