Home & Capital has bought Ecclesiastical Life’s equity release advice business Hinton & Wild.
The sale gives Home & Capital the ability to expand its growing adviser business to a wider range of clients looking for equity release advice.
Home & Capital Advisers Ltd will change its name to Hinton & Wild Limited but both Home & Capital Advisers and Hinton & Wild will continue to be used as trading names.
The enlarged operation will be headed up by Home & Capital sales director by Nigel Hare-Scott.
Home & Capital business development manager Simon Little says: “This is an exciting opportunity for Home and Capital as we look to expand our reach in the equity release market through our own distribution network. It helps establish Home & Capital as not only a home reversion provider but also as a distributor of equity release plans, offering clients a full range of equity release products. The purchase of such a well known and respected advisory business as Hinton & Wild with its long established links in this market will help strengthen our credentials as a serious player in this market”
Hare-Scott adds: “With Hinton & Wild joining the group, there will be excellent potential for us to grow the business more rapidly. To help us capitalise on these opportunities, Home & Capital is looking to hire additional qualified advisers to cover all parts of the country.”
