LV= announces equity release bootcamps

Press release: 06/02/2012

Retirement specialist LV= today announces it is hosting a series of equity release bootcamps, aimed at financial advisers who have recently started advising or are looking to begin advising on the equity release market.

The sessions will run across the country from 22 February. Due to the number of advisers that have already signed-up, LV= has now added two extra dates on 6 March and 20 March 2012 (see below for full list of dates and venues).

The one-day bootcamps will cover the growing equity release market and how it can form part of clients’ retirement planning, factors to consider when assessing suitability, and guidance on lead generation and marketing.

Vanessa Owen, LV= Head of Equity Release, said: “Consumer demand will continue to grow for equity release in the coming years, so our bootcamps aim to help advisers talk to existing clients about equity release, and also generate new business in this market. A property is often a person’s largest asset, so it should be a key consideration when discussing how people are going to fund or enjoy their retirement.

“There has already been a huge amount of interest in our bootcamps, so it’s great we’ve been able to add extra dates to keep up with demand. We’ve been running these types of equity release roadshows for a few years with great feedback, and we want to continue to support advisers and show commitment to the equity release market.”

The LV= equity release bootcamps are taking place as follows:

  • 22 February 2012 Village Hotel, Elstree (fully booked)

  • 23 February 2012 Village Hotel, Swindon

  • 29 February 2012 Village Hotel, Warrington (fully booked)

  • 1 March 2012 Village Hotel, Nottingham (fully booked)

  • 6 March 2012 Village Hotel, Elstree

  • 20 March 2012 Reigate Manor Hotel, Reigate

To sign up for a free place financial advisers should contact Georgina Oxton at LV= on, or 01462 446821.
