Hi I’m Gary,
My career in finance spans over 30 years, previously as a senior executive at Nationwide and also Head of Partnerships at equity release lender More2Life and Key Retirement. Therefore, I have a background of valuable practical experience in specialist mortgage lending.
I now specialise in the Equity Release & Later Life Lending Sector in helping find the best plan from the whole of the market for my clients.
I subsequently joined Equity Release Supermarket in 2014 because they really do understand that releasing equity is possibly one of the biggest considered decisions that customers will make. Giving clients the time to familiarise themselves with the concept of Equity Release is crucial. I’m passionate about helping customers achieve the best outcome for their needs and ensuring equity release is the right thing to do.
My role at Equity Release Supermarket comes with the responsibility for the Development of our Business Partner Channels which includes Financial Intermediaries, Professional Groups and Affinity Partners. We offer our range of services to clients of financial organisations who choose not to advise in this sector.
As well as being one of the leading experts, Equity Release Supermarket is well known for not only delivering a friendly, quality, equity release advice service, but also offering a transparent approach for consumers who want to conduct some of the research themselves by offering a suite of web-based tools that can help understand more about available plans, products and rates.
Equity Release Supermarket is an active member of the Equity Release Council the trade body that represents the lenders, advisers and solicitors operating in our industry to promote high standards of conduct and practice in the provision of advice on equity release.
Equity Release Supermarket and I are committed to the consumer safeguards embedded in the Council’s code of conduct. So much so I am proud to represent our company on the Equity Release Council’s Policy and Communications Committee and help formulate strategy for the benefit of consumers.
I live close to London with my wife and now that my children are grown up, I really enjoy my time spent with the grandchildren and supporting West Ham Utd.
