The Later Life Lending Network, the specialist equity release & later life lending arm of The Right Mortgage & Protection Network (TRM), has today (29th March) announced a partnership with Answers in Retirement Group (AIR Group). AIR Group is a collective of companies covering a range of retirement and later life services, all of which are now available to the networks’ later life advisers.

As part of this this new partnership, TRM members will be provided with an exclusive white-labelled version of AIR Group’s award-winning sourcing system, AIR Sourcing. The sourcing system covers all available equity release and retirement lending products, whilst building a compliance audit.

TRM later life members will also have access to a range of bespoke training events via AIR Group’s Later Life Academy, the commercial and training organisation for later life advisers, as well as The Equity Release Club – the platform for equity release and later life advisers.

Currently, TRM has close to 50 later life advisers operating within The Later Life Lending Network but they aren’t looking to stop there. TRM seek to grow their presence even further within this innovative product sector; this new collaboration with AIR Group will allow the network to offer its members a range of enhanced opportunities, support, resources, products, expertise and technology, specifically for those advising older customers.

Stuart Wilson, Chief Executive Officer of Answers In Retirement Group, said:

“During our discussions with Martin and the team at TRM, it became very apparent that a clear objective was to support and develop bespoke training for TRM members to allow them to be at the forefront of the sector. This was coupled with a requirement for a simple to use sourcing tool that covers all equity release and RIO providers, allowing detailed filtering. We are delighted to have been able to provide this solution with access to our range of training courses, our later life expertise within the group, and a white-labelled version of our award-winning AiR Sourcing with full API functionality. We are looking forward to working with TRM and its management team to greatly broaden the network’s offering to its later life advisers.

Martin Wilson, CEO of The Right Mortgage & Protection Network, said:

“We launched The Later Life Lending Network last year to show how serious the network is about the equity release industry. Our partnership with AIR Group helps us in providing our membership with the best possible tools to help them grow their businesses. We look forward to growing our relationship with AIR Group in years to come.”

Adam Stretton, MD of The Right Mortgage & Protection Network, added:

“AIR Groups solution is great for our members; they not only supply an easy to use and intuitive sourcing system, but also a robust training programme that sits alongside it.”
