Today's lifetime mortgage products offer more options than ever before so you can tailor solutions to meet more client requirements. For example, more products enable clients to service interest, helping to reduce the impact of interest roll-up and the overall amount borrowed.
The introduction of medical underwriting can also help you to deliver a personalised solution for every client. In fact, around six in ten people could borrow more or get a better interest rate. Regulatory scrutiny is already being ratcheted up but medical underwriting helps here too. The 2020 review of equity release firms by the Financial Conduct Authority raised concerns about personalisation of advice.
Providing your clients' health and lifestyle information means that they could get better deals and helps you respond to the FCA's challenge to demonstrate improved personalisation of advice.
By combining medical underwriting with a flexible choice of options, it's never been easier to design personalised lifetime mortgage solutions unique to every client.
