The Equity Release Council is the representative trade body for the UK equity release sector. It leads a consumer-focused market by setting authoritative standards and safeguards to ensure advice can be trusted and products are safe and sustainable. In 2022, it celebrated the 30th anniversary of those standards which, to date, have underpinned more than 592,000 plans, enabling homeowners over 55 to release almost £39bn in housing wealth, to support their later life finances.
The Council has more than 1550 individual members and over 650 member firms registered, which includes providers, funders, regulated financial advisers, solicitors, surveyors and other professionals. In addition to supporting its members the Council works with government, voluntary and public sectors, as well as regulatory, consumer and professional bodies, to inform and influence the debate about the use of housing wealth in later life financial planning.Find out more about The Equity Release Council »
