Key and Thinc in equity release link

Thinc Group has linked-up with Key Retirement Solutions in an equity release referral deal.

Thinc’s equity release business will now be referred through the specialist intermediary. Previously, only a handful of Thinc’s advisers were permitted to write equity release business.

Key will also support Thinc advisers through its Lifetime Advisory Service training scheme by running a series of workshops so advisers can place equity release business and use LAS’s working platform by the end of 2007.

Key business development director Dean Mirfin says: “The partnership with Thinc is great news and strengthens Key’s relationship within the broader equity release market. This new deal proves that our referral process continues to be recognised as the number one choice, with a system that is built bottom up – by advisers, for advisers.”

Thinc director of mortgages Alex Murray says: “After researching the market thoroughly Key proved to be the perfect partner.”
