Legal & General Home Finance has announced a new strategy to invest in the intermediated mortgage market with the aim of growing lifetime mortgage distribution and supporting brokers to advise their clients on retirement lending solutions.
8 Oct 2018
The retirement lender’s new strategy, which will be launching November, follows recent announcements underpinning Legal & General Home Finance’s commitment to the mortgage sector and to helping address the interest-only shortfall. These include the launch of the Optional Payment Lifetime Mortgage (OPLM), a new technology partnership with Twenty7Tec and the agreement with Virgin Money to offer advised lifetime mortgages to the bank’s interest-only customers.
Legal & General Home Finance also recently appointed Marie Catch as Head of Mortgage Broker Sales, with a remit to bring more mortgage brokers into the retirement lending sector. Catch is responsible for broadening Legal & General’s distribution profile and engaging brokers, including those who aren’t yet advising on retirement lending products. Marie will lead the implementation of this new strategy to assist and educate brokers from the very start of their journey into the later life lending sector.
Steve Ellis, CEO, Legal & General Home Finance:
"From our Virgin Money partnership to Marie’s appointment, Legal & General Home Finance is taking big strides to demonstrate our commitment to mortgage brokers and customers."
