The Money Marketing CPD Centre has launched an equity release module.
The new module is aimed at advisers who already have the necessary equity release qualification, those studying for the qualification who want to self-test their knowledge and advisers who outsource their equity release advice but want to keep up-to-date with the subject matter.
The MM CPD Centre is being used by over 4,500 advisers. The online platform is free to all readers and is powered by our technical division Taxbriefs and Redland Business Solutions.
It acts as supplier, tutor, recorder and verifier of all your CPD activities and will deliver all records when applying to maintain your Statement of Professional Standing. It is accredited by the CII, the Institute of Financial Planning and ifs School of Finance.
Advisers need to undertake a minimum of 35 hours CPD each year, 21 of which must be structured.
This equity release module gives advisers 2.5 hours of structured CPD.
Just Retirement is sponsoring the CPD module. Director Stephen Lowe says: “Many clients are arriving at retirement shocked by the purchasing power of their assets and reluctant to accept the kind of retirement pension savings alone will provide. More people are turning to their largest asset, the equity stored in their property to respond to this challenge.
“We believe supporting intermediaries as they help their clients to ‘think house’, as part of a holistic approach to retirement planning is essential.”
