The panel will initially include intermediaries Age Partnership, Equity Advice, Equity Release Solutions, Helen Brown Financial Services, Home & Capital, Key Retirement Solutions and NHFA.
Managing director Colin Franklin says: “We are very pleased to be able to offer borrowers access to lifetime mortgages through such an experienced panel of intermediaries. We have listened hard to advisers when designing our equity release products and we are confident that they will appeal to IFAs and their clients. We have had positive feedback at this early stage, and we look forward to announcing product details at the end of the month.”
Age Partnership sales and marketing director Dan Baines adds: “The entry of a trusted name such as Godiva Mortgages into the market will help to build both intermediaries and their customer’s faith in this product sector resulting in sustained growth.
