New advisers who are entering the market can find education and support too, through the platform, its online Upskill support programme and the dedicated helpdesk that contributes to help them gaining the industry knowledge and keep up-to-date with all the latest changes in the market.
Jonathan Thirkill, Chief Executive Officer at Advise Wise comments: “We are delighted to join the Equity Release Council and contribute to the fantastic work the Council is doing on the market. This important step makes our commitment to support advisers and help the market grow even stronger.”

David Burrowes, Chairman of the Equity Release Council, comments: “Today’s equity release market offers a broad range of product options backed by the highest level of consumer safeguards for any property-based loan. We welcome Advise Wise’s commitment to supporting these standards and to raising awareness of equity release as a mainstream financial product by joining our membership.”
“With increasingly flexible ways to unlock property wealth in later life, technology platforms have an important role to play in putting an array of information at advisers’ fingertips to help the customer find a suitable product for them.”
