Hi I’m Anthony.
I’ve worked in financial services since 2001 and I have been an Equity Release Specialist since 2007. I’m based in Bradford, West Yorkshire and I offer face to face and telephone advice to clients across the UK. Since I started giving independent advice on equity release I have helped to arrange in excess of 500 lifetime mortgage plans.
I pride myself in giving an honest professional service and using my expertise to find the best solutions for my clients while making things as simple and straight forward as possible. Like lots of the general public I was sceptical about equity release before I became a specialist. I am so glad I did find out more and studied for the additional qualification as I thoroughly enjoy my role now. Helping people achieve their goals at a time in life where they should be able to relax and make the most of life is very rewarding.
When the right advice process is followed equity release is a fantastic product. There are a lot more product options and innovative features becoming available all the time and I can only see this improving further as the demand for the product increases. We have seen this recently with more plans becoming available that allow interest payments or voluntary repayments to be made. These are always the first products I look at before exploring those which do not require payments but have a higher long term cost.
Every client’s situation is different so it is about understanding each person’s circumstances and then recommending the solution that works best for them. I hope to help improve people’s perception of our industry through the quality of the service I offer and I am a member of the industry body, The Equity Release Council.
I have been with Equity Release Supermarket since January 2011 and am proud to be part of a fresh thinking, dynamic and award winning company that does not stereotype its customers because of their age. We have a friendly approach and want our clients to fully understand the options available without feeling any commitment or pressure to proceed. That’s why all initial advice is without charge or obligation and can take the form of a simple brief chat on the telephone.
