What we do

Equity Release Supermarket is an award winning independent advisory firm at the forefront of the rapidly expanding equity release market. The company is owned by its founder Mark Gregory, a financial services professional with over 20 years’ experience in equity release and we now have a national network of over 50 advisers – which we are looking to expand.

Established in 2008 and directly authorised since 2012, Equity Release Supermarket has gained an enviable reputation through combining high quality impartial financial advice, streamlined administration processes and digital technology to offer its customers an award-winning service.

The equity release market has experienced rapid growth over the last few years, which is set to continue. While Equity Release Supermarket has benefitted from this, we have also delivered a number of strategic programmes which has seen our development outpace the market, having experienced growth of almost 50% in each of the last two years.

We are determined to continue this growth trajectory through constantly innovating and our strategic roadmap includes -

  • A ‘first to market’ technology solution which will ease the plan selection process for clients and improve conversion rates.
  • Repositioning our digital platforms to create seamless, intuitive customer experiences.
  • A customer app – so that they are always up to speed with the progress of their application.
  • Placing data at the centre of our business.

We have also strengthened our leadership team and appointed a number of top-class agency partners to support us in realising our ambitions.

How we do it

Central to our growth is our lead generation programme and our customer enquiries are either generated from our own websites, via our introducer partnerships or from favourable recommendations from our existing customers.

We don’t buy in leads from third parties. As such we are a self-sufficient business where customers approach us and so the leads we provide to our advisers are of a higher quality, thus enhancing the conversion rate of lead to sale.

We have also invested in centralised administration and compliance, embracing technology to deliver a prompt and reliable service to clients. This includes the only case tracking facility in the equity release broker space, where clients can login online to access application updates and documentation. This streamline process has gained the company an enviable 99% customer satisfaction feefo review record from our customers.

We also enjoy an excellent compliance record, which has been verified following audits from Legal & General, KPMG, LV= and Canada Life. In addition, we have invested in external compliance support to ensure that we remain aware of our regulatory obligations & assesses our compliance function on an ongoing basis along with GDPR compliance.

Moreover, we have controlled fixed costs to ensure that we remain profitable in the event of fluctuating markets and are able to expand without significant investment. Sales and financial performance are reviewed monthly and we now have our strategic team in place to formally review progress and drive future growth across key areas such as compliance, administration, sales/marketing and IT.
