SEQUAL Deloitte Research Report to December 2013

The 2013 Deloitte SEQUAL Reverse Mortgage report confirms the continuing interest in Reverse Mortgages despite the reduction in providers and active providers and the lack of funding.  Some 4,000 new contracts were negotiated during the year and this was for Reverse Mortgages only a significant number of shared equity contracts were also sold. An interesting aspect of the survey was that we saw customers who have taken Reverse Mortgages using them to fund their requirement at the time but as their life changes and requirements alter they matured their mortgages to allow them to enter the new aspect of their life requirements. Enquiries to SEQUAL throughout the year have maintained a strong interest in the area of Home Equity Release and we certainly foreshadow continuing growth in this sector and with the prospect of new providers and new products we see a significant interest in providing for the needs of the future.

Specifically we are finding the interest from people to consider Home Equity Release in conjunction with their superannuation to recognise Home Equity Release as the fourth pillar of financial and retirement planning.
